Cavs Cavaliers suspend Bynum for conduct detrimental to the team. Looking to deal him!!

Quote:
CLEVELAND -- The Andrew Bynum experiment appears over for the Cavaliers.

The team suspended the enigmatic centre indefinitely on Saturday for "conduct detrimental to the team" and banned him from all team-related activities. Bynum, who signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Cavs in July, did not travel with the team to Boston for Saturday's game and it's likely that he has played his final game for Cleveland.

The Cavs will try to trade Bynum.

Bynum's suspension isn't a major shock considering he has not performed at a consistent level and has appeared uninterested while on the floor. Earlier this season, the 7-footer, who did not play a single second last season for Philadelphia because of knee injuries, talked openly about retirement and said his medical issues have been a challenge to overcome.

"It's a terrible situation internally with our team," All-Star guard Kyrie Irving said before the Cavs faced the Celtics. "It's something we have to get over."

Cavs coach Mike Brown has been a huge supporter of Bynum. The two were together in Los Angeles and their relationship was one of the reasons the Cavs risked signing Bynum.

Brown was asked if Bynum's days with the Cavs were over.

"He's on an indefinite suspension and I'm not trying to be funny, but you know what indefinite means," Brown said. "We've got 14 guys in that locker room who are very focused and determined and ready to take on any challenge that's in front of them. They're great guys, they're focused guys and they know how to play the game the right way and that's what I'm focused on, just helping those guys win."

So many teams need a center, and so many teams still don't want Bynum. What does that tell you?

Adrian Wojnarowski‏@WojYahooNBA3h
About Bynum suspension, league source tells Yahoo: "He doesn't want to play basketball anymore. He never liked it that much in first place."
Quote:
Adrian Wojnarowski‏@WojYahooNBA3h
It's very possible Bynum's played his final game for Cavs, sources tell Yahoo. In trade, a team can waive Bynum and save $6m of $12m salary.

Adrian Wojnarowski‏@WojYahooNBA2h
Teams who considered signing Bynum in summer were as concerned about his desire to play as his knees. Officials didn't see motivated rehab.

Adrian Wojnarowski‏@WojYahooNBA2h
Cavs believe Bynum has been "disruptive" presence within team and lost hope partnership can be salvaged, league sources tell Yahoo.

Y! sources: Cavs suspend Andrew Bynum, determined to unload him. Y! SPORTS

I really doubt anyone will trade for him after what's happened with him in PHI and CLE.

He'd be a great fit with the Clippers though once he's cleared waivers. He's exactly what they need off the bench, and if any situation could help turn things around, itd be in a city where he's comfortable(and played most of his career in), and a coach who wont take shit from him. It's a good gamble for LAC, they sign him to a cheap 1 year deal, and if he continues on the path hes on right now, they can cut him, but if he actually comes to play, LAC would have a serious shot at the title, something they cant claim currently

If we do that Cavs become much better and that pick ends up being in the 20s
That's not enough for Lowry and DD imo

That sounds like a perfect opportunity for Houston and Morey. Asik for Bynum+pick, salaries work. Just need a 3rd team that takes the pick(s) and gives Houston a player they need. Perimeter defender/shooter or stretch 4. Or Houston could just take Bynum+assets and figure it out later.

Big NBA night, 12 games on today. Then this stupid "Bynum needs a new team" shows up, and totally spoils all the other happenings in the league right now.

One deal that seems interesting to me:
Cleveland gets Asik
Houston gets Ilyasova
Milwaukee gets Bynum and something from Cleveland (some picks probably)

Milwaukee waives Bynum to save money and ends up with picks. Houston gets their stretch 4. Cleveland gets a center.

Another option, if there's truth to the rumor that Milwaukee wants to move Larry Sanders: Sanders for Bynum + picks.

I could also see Dallas interested. Shawn Marion + sweeteners. They are desperate enough for a post presence to take a gamble.

You have to wonder if he isn't trying to get out of Cleveland

Also Brooklyn they could really use another big now, Maybe Pierce for Bynum
