Found July 21, 2013 on NBA Injury News:
Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown told reporters yesterday that if newly signed big man Andrew Bynum is able to arrive at training camp in shape and healthy he will be the team’s starting center next season. While that may seem like an obvious statement, Jason Lloyd of The Beacon Journal reminds readers that nothing can be taken for granted when it comes to Bynum and his troublesome knees.“He’s most likely going to start for us because he’s obviously an All-Star caliber player,” Brown said. “But we need to see where his health is as we progress toward training camp, into training camp, preseason and into the regular season. If everything fits right, if he’s completely healthy, no doubt about it, he’s our starter at center.”While it would appear that Tristan Thompson would be the favorite to start beside Bynum, Brown indicated that former center Anderson Varejao could also see time at power forward.For his part, Bynum is extremely confident in himself and his new team. He believes that he’ll be an All-Star center if he remains healthy, and he says the Cavaliers will make the playoffs this season. Both could wind up being true, but each instance will largely depend on the healthy and durability of Bynum’s knees.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
