How about Fields for Bynum and waive him. Frees up money for contracts for Lowry, Greivis and PP

This ^. We had a player here before who was unmotivated and quit on us, even though I liked him in his early years of playing for the Raptors. What was his name, I remember Vince Carter haha. Bynum has always been an asshole both on and off the court. I don't want him anywhere near our team because he may take his teammates

The Cavs won't want Fields' bad contract when they can just waive Bynum and have cap space.

I could see Miami grabbing him. They need bigs to compete inside with Indy, and they know any unmotivated player would be insane to not want to play there, so that should get him motivated quickly since he'd be on the best team playing alongside the best player in the world..

You got teams like the Knicks and Nets and Lakers... all short on bigs, and buckets of cash to spend. I don't think Bynum will struggle to find a new home.

Cleveland can just waive Bynum without having to take on LF and his guaranteed salary for next season. Next!

Varejao just turned into a top 10 player fantasy wise, happy I held on to him and dropped Bynum long ago. Bynum has to be the biggest waste of talent of this generation.

not likely.....I agree with an earlier post, I think Bynum is doing this to get out. Clips and Heat....anyone think the Lakers would entertain bringing him back?

Quote:
The former Lakers big man, troubled by knee injuries and possibly a lack of desire to play at the highest level, was suspended indefinitely by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday for conduct detrimental to the team. Reports have the Cavs eager to deal Andrew Bynum. The Clippers, in need of frontline support behind center DeAndre Jordan and power forward Blake Griffin, could be one team interested in trying to make it work with the troubled 7-footer who had not long ago put himself in the discussion alongside Dwight Howard as the league’s top center. Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times breaks it down:


The Clippers would have interest in Bynum if he was released by the Cavaliers, according to several NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

But according to one Eastern Conference executive, the Clippers would have competition for Bynum because the Miami Heat also would have interest in the seven-footer.

The Clippers have the NBA-maximum 15-player roster and would have to waive a player if they were to sign Bynum, who is still only 26.

The Cavaliers signed Bynum to a two-year, $24-million deal over the summer. But only $6 million of Bynum’s $12.2-million contract for this season is guaranteed if he is waived before Jan. 7.

The Eastern Conference executive said it’s possible Bynum will be released by the Cavaliers in early January if they can’t trade him so the team is not on the hook for the last $6 million Bynum would be owed.

Bynum has averaged 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in 20.0 minutes in the 24 games he has played with the Cavaliers. He had 18 points and six rebounds in 24 minutes when he started for the Cavaliers against the Clippers on Dec. 7

No team in their right mind will touch him with a 10 foot pole now. Except maybe the knicks... because they are the knicks... and they are .. well... stupid.

Potential has a shelf life and bynums just expired.

Disagree. If a team can sign him for the rest of the year for a minimum contract and can waive him at any time, why would a contender not do it? There's no risk, and huge upside
