Cavs and Mavs Interested In Andrew Bynum


According to Marc Stein, both the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks are showing extreme interest in all-star center Andrew Bynum.

The reason the Cavaliers want to sign Bynum to only a one-year deal is because they would really like to preserve cap space for the 2014 NBA offseason. If Cleveland does sign Bynum, and he can stay healthy, man does that team look scary.

The Mavericks would love to have Bynum because they have a huge hole to fill after all-star center Tyson Chandler left. Dallas is taking their time evaluating Bynum to see whether or not it would be a good idea to sign him to a long-term deal due to his injury problems.

If either of these teams land Bynum and he stays healthy, it will be a huge upgrade for sure, but if not, they are really rolling the dice on this one.
