The Cavaliers and Mavericks are the two teams currently most interested in free agent Andrew Bynum. With $15 million available, the Cavs are ‘legitimate contenders’ to get Bynum on a one-year contract.
According to Marc Stein of ESPN:
Initial indications are that the Cavaliers won’t offer more than a one-year deal to Bynum to preserve all of their projected salary-cap space in the summer of 2014 and the expected free-agent pursuit of LeBron James. But Cleveland does still have roughly $15 million in available salary-cap space to use this summer and, sources say, they have legitimate interest in Bynum.
The Mavericks are also actively pursuing Bynum in the wake of Dwight Howard’s decision to sign with the Houston Rockets, sources previously told ESPN.com.
