Cleveland Cavaliers Should Trade Or Release Andrew Bynum Quickly

Andrew Bynum

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

In the offseason, the Cleveland Cavaliers signed Andrew Bynum to a $24.5 million, two-year deal. As the season has progressed, it looked like the Bynum signing was paying off as the Cleveland big man was contributing to the team. In 24 games, Bynum has started in 19 averaging¬†8.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocks. However, that all changed when news broke Saturday that Bynum was suspended indefinitely for “conduct detrimental to the team.”

The Cavaliers would be smart to either trade or release him. If they can not find a trade partner before January 7, Cleveland would be smart to drop Bynum. As part of the contract, Bynum guaranteed only $6 million of the $24.5 million if he is released by January 7.

Bynum’s issues on and off the court had shed a negative light on the NBA and shows how immature he is. Just flash back to last season when Bynum had knee surgery and then decided to go bowling. As a result, he damaged his knee further and missed the entire season for the Philadelphia 76ers.

Overall, Bynum isn’t worth the millions he demands. It would not shock me if zero teams inquire about acquiring him. If some teams do, do not be surprised if they want the Cavaliers to eat part of his salary this season. While his recent play has not dictated his salary, his attitude and behavior ¬†does not either. His arrogant and childish actions bring negative attention to wherever he is. Additionally, his actions cause distractions to his teammates and coaches.

In short, Bynum will not be on the Cavs for long. They would be stupid to keep him on the team past January 7 and will be looking hard trade the big man. If they can’t receive anything worthwhile in return, they will release him.
