Bynum signs two-year deal with Cleveland


Cleveland, Ohio — The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly come to terms on a two-year contract with center Andrew Bynum, who missed the entire 2012-13 season due to balky knees.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer was one media source to report the agreement, which is reportedly for two years with $6 million guaranteed in the first year. The second year is a team option. ESPN reports Bynum’s deal is laden with incentives and could be worth up to $24 million.

The Philadelphia 76ers traded for Bynum last summer, but he never took the court for his new team after spending his first seven seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 7-foot center had arthroscopic surgery on both knees in March.
