In today’s sports news, unrestricted free agent Andrew Bynum agreed to take his talents to the Cleveland Cavaliers. On Wednesday July 10, 2013, the former 76ers Center signed a two-year deal worth $24 million. This acquisition for the Cavaliers is key as they begin to rebuild their franchise around their core that consists of: Kyrie Irving, first overall pick Anthony Bennett, Earl Clark, Anderson Varejao, Tyler Zeller and Tristan Thompson. Bynum averaged 20.5 points and 11.5 rebounds as a Center for the Los Angles Lakers during the 2011-2012 season. However, Bynum was plagued with a severe knee injury during his time as a 76er in Philadelphia. According to sources, Bynum is unable to participate in full court drills. Is this move for Bynum worthwhile, and will it benefit the Cleveland Cavaliers in the future?
