Will Andrew Bynum Ever Live Up to Potential With Cleveland Cavaliers?

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers have offered former Los Angeles Lakers’ star and Philadelphia 76ers bust Andrew Bynum a two-year deal. Bynum missed the entirety of the 2012-2013 season due to knee injuries. His injury woes are part of the reason why many believe that Cleveland made a horrible move attempting to sign him.

However, Bynum will be a great addition to the Cavaliers. Anthony Bennett, Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters are all young talented stars with a lot of potential. Bynum, who is still young by NBA standards, will be able to come onto the team and take up a leadership position almost immediately.

Bynum may not be the player he was before the injuries, but he is a top-tier caliber basketball player that can’t get a break. If he can overcome his injuries and show even some minor positives for the team, he can finally get back on track to being a great NBA player.

Cleveland needs a star big man down low, and since they decided to forgo Alex Len and Nerlens Noel in the draft, Bynum is the best available. If Cleveland is to have any success, Bynum has to come through for the Cavs.

It is getting to the point in Bynum’s career that he can either break free of his recent struggles or fade away while his former teams think of what could have been. The upcoming season will determine whether or not any future teams should take a chance with the 7-feet center.

The Cavaliers aren’t headed to the NBA Playoffs anytime soon, but if Bynum can remain healthy and begin to produce once again, he may make a positive impact on this young team sooner rather than later.
