Mavericks and Cavaliers Want Andrew Bynum: Where Should He Sign?
With that being said, the seven-foot center is on the NBA‘s open market and the Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be the favorites to land Bynum after offering him a two-year deal worth $12 million annually.
Some of you may be saying that $24 million is way too much, but this is the same No. 17 who was a hot commodity this time last year. With a whole year on the sidelines, it’s easy to forget about Bynum’s 18.7 points per game and 11.8 rebounds a contest in 2011-12.
Bring a double-double machine like Bynum to Cleveland and Kyrie Irving might be on the fast track to an MVP award in the coming seasons. However, a log jam of forwards and centers might cause the highly-regarded center to head to the Dallas Mavericks instead. Dallas has longed for an effective center ever since Tyson Chandler left for the New York Knicks after the Mavs’ championship run in 2010-11.
Spending $20 million on Bynum is an easy decision if you’re Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson. Pairing up an aging Dirk Nowitzki with the 25-year-old Bynum is a match made in heaven and the exuberant combination could keep No. 41 in the league longer than expected.
Keep an eye on where the injury-riddled center will wind up in 2013-14, because if he ends up in the right spot Bynum could easily have a better season than Dwight Howard.
