Say hello to your new starting center (or should we say old starting center), Mike Brown. Yes, the one that once insisted on launching a 3-point shot in the middle of a tight game for no apparent reason.
It was reported on Wednesday, first by ESPN’s Chris Broussard, that the Cleveland Cavaliers and the enigmatic center Andrew Bynum have come to an agreement on a two-year deal filled with incentives. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports has details:
“The Cleveland Cavaliers will guarantee $6 million of a possible $24.5 million to free agent Andrew Bynum in a two-year, incentive-laden contract that the two-time NBA champion center agreed upon on Wednesday, a league source told Yahoo! Sports. Bynum’s history of knee problems, including losing the entire 2012-13 season to injury, is the reason that teams are so cautious with committing guaranteed money and contract years for the two-time NBA champion center. After visiting with Cleveland, Atlanta and Dallas in successive days, Bynum chose the Cavaliers’ deal on Wednesday night. The agreement includes reasonable incentives on playing time and games played for this season that could pay Bynum $12 million, a league source said. The Cavaliers hold an option for the 2014-15 season worth $12.5 million.”
