Latest NBA Free Agent News Including A Big Signing By The Cavs
He didn't play a minute last year but Andrew Bynum cashes in big anyway. The big man who was traded in a 3 team deal last year from the Lakers to the 76ers inks a free agent deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The deal is for 1 year with an option year, at the Cavs choosing for a 2nd season. The deal will guarantee Bynum only 6 million and he can earn another 6 million based on incentives, including games played this year.
Cleveland appears to have been more aggressive in going after Bynum then other possible teams that included Dallas.
Bynum didn't play 1 game last season, complaining of knee pain. The rumors are that Cleveland hopes Bynum plays well and helps bring back Lebron James, who is a free agent after this coming season.
In another move, under rated point guard George Teague is expected to sign a 4 year offer sheet from the Milwaukee Bucks for over 30 million. Milwaukee is now coached by former hawks coach Larry drew. Teague played for Atlanta while Drew coached in Atlanta.
The Detroit Pistons are bringing back Chauncey Billups. The free agent guard starred with Detroit from 2002 through 2008 when he was dealt to Denver for Allen Iverson. Billups then was shipped to the Knicks in the Carmelo Anthony trade. He then went onto the Clippers but played only 22 games after rupturing his Achilles tendon.
