Waiting For Next Year:
It appears that Andrew Bynum left Cleveland today, but not before the Cavaliers offered the 25 year old center a two year contract offer worth up to $24 million with incentives according to Adrian Wojnarowski-
“The Cavaliers met with Bynum in Cleveland on Monday, but could fast lose patience with waiting on the two-time NBA champion center to make a decision on accepting the offer, which includes a team option in the second year of the deal, sources said.”
The prevailing thought was that the Indians would offer Bynum a one year deal, with a team option for 2014. It sounds like that is exactly what the deal hinges on-
“Cleveland wants a team option on a second contract year to protect it against losing Bynum to 2014 free agency should his damaged knees heal enough to allow him to make a resurgence this season. The incentives of a possible Bynum contract could include minimal hurdles of completing training camp and reaching minutes and games-played plateaus in the regular season, league sources said.”
Bynum left Cleveland for Atlanta. He also has a meeting scheduled with Dallas later this week.
Meanwhile, Cleveland will continue to pursue other free agents including Elton Brand as reported by the New York Post, and also Andre Kirilenko.
