    Default Cavaliers suspend Andrew Bynum indefinately; on trade block

    I'll be looking forward to his inevitable 30 for 30 documentary

    Cavaliers suspend Andrew Bynum

    The Cleveland Cavaliers suspended center Andrew Bynum indefinitely Saturday for conduct detrimental to the team.

    Bynum
    In addition, the Cavs will begin aggressively looking to trade Bynum, sources told ESPN.com.

    The team has until Jan. 7 to decide if it will guarantee his contract for the rest of the season. Bynum signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Cavs last summer but the team-friendly contract was only $6 million guaranteed.

    Bynum did not travel with the team to Boston for Saturday's game. The decision to suspend Bynum was made Friday, sources said. It was unclear what led to the suspension.

    After missing all of last season with knee injuries, Bynum has returned to play in 24 games (19 starts) and average 8.6 points and 5.3 rebounds. He's shooting just 42 percent from the floor.

    Bynum has admitted on several occasions that he's struggled mentally with learning to play with less mobility and in pain with his knees.

    Because of his flexible contract and that he's proven he can play again, Bynum could have some suitors in the trade market.

    Miami thinks they see an answer for Roy. Might make the team implode if it happens.

    @RicBucher: If Cavs handle Bynum the same way they did Baron Davis, forget him going to Mia. Gilbert will pay him to sit over letting him join the Heat.


    Lets hope so.

    I believe Bynum's $6 million contract becomes fully guaranteed if he plays like 2 more weeks...

    Either this is some real shady BS by the Cavs, or Bynum really is that dumb.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Why would it be shady by the Cavs? They don't have to bench Bynum, they could just cut him.

    As for Bynum being dumb, he's already made the first $6 mil of this year's contract so if he were cut and signed for vet min with another team, he'd be sacrificing about $5.5 million to chase a ring, correct? That's a lot, but not astronomical.

    According to Windhorst, Bynum's 14-15 contract isn't guaranteed until next year so they have a ton of time to decide what to do with him if they decide to just hold for this season. Cleveland is annoyingly awful in most of what they do but this Bynum contract was structured really well.

    You know the more I think about it the more impressive it is between him and Odom that the Lakers got two more rings out of these fools.

    $5.5 million is a ton of money. I don't care who you are. I'm pretty sure his agent would agree with me.

    Which is why he'd have just waited 10 days before pulling any ****. It's not on Bynum, it's the Cavs being a crap team and trying to turn an asset (mostly his contract) into something. Cleveland's a friggin mess.

    Thing is, if it was that simple, Bynum would have just filed a grievance with the players' union contesting his suspension.

    Of course Bucher was also the one, a few years ago, who said Kobe Bryant would never play for the Lakers again.

    @sam_amick: Bynum producing again of late: averaging 10.4 pts (45.1%), 6.8 reb, 1.3 blocks, 23.3 min in last 12 games. Just enough to entice teams.


    Yep no the same player but is still pretty good if Miami is able to get him.

    He went 0/11 from the floor vs drummond earlier this week. Haven't been watching the cavs but he is a statue. Unless you're driving the ball right at him, he can't play any help defense.

    I don't see how he helps anyone significantly. He can't move.

    The Cavs are doing an Andrew Bynum fathead giveaway at their next game.

    He helps the idea is to have him to neutralize Roy.

    The detrimental conduct has to be him stealing Bennett's buckets of hot wings the last couple of weeks. Guess they found all the leftovers and also explains why Anthony was sick!
    yay, we're going back to the play-offs!

    Heck of a salary dump opportunity for someone. I don't know what the Cavs would expect to get back though. Maybe a bad contract and a couple of picks but I thought they were trying to win now.

    Where? Cause he is not stopping the verticality advantage. Anderson does that much better with cuts along the baseline. I don't think his low post is good enough to put Roy in foul trouble.

    There is no neutralizing unless he can move better without the basketball.

    Roy's offensive game can be neutralize we need his offense against Miami too, that is the reason why they got Oden.

    I don't think it'll get to the point where he's waived, I think someone will trade for him. If the other team gives the Cavs an expiring and like a pick or cash or something, he's gone.

    Houston could also possibly offer Asik if they want the cap space after this year, Bynum would probably be more willing to come off bench.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Makes no sense to trade for him when you know the Cavs will release him anyway.
