DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks started their Wednesday by engaging Andrew Bynum in a breakfast at the Crescent in downtown Dallas. The meal was the highlight of the Bynum-Mavs relationship.
Sources tell FoxSportsSouthwest.com that following the meeting between Bynum, agent David Lee, GM Donnie Nelson and coach Rick Carlisle, the Mavs opted not to push Bynum into working out because of the level of faith the Mavs have in their medical staff. Indeed, GM Donnie Nelson acknowledged that the staff, led by trainer Casey Smith, did meet with Bynum and researched his situation.
For legal reasons, the Mavs will not comment on the results of the testing, which was not only knee-related but also "head-to-toe," as one source said.
And as a result, Dallas never presented him an offer, leaving him to accept the Cleveland deal, publicized as a "two-year, 24-million" contract but really just one that guarantees 6 million in the first year and a team option for the second.
