Independence, OH (WOIO) - With Dwight Howard off the market, the most attractive big man on the market is now Andrew Bynum, and on Monday, the Cavaliers made their big push.
Mike Brown, who coached Bynum in Los Angeles, met with the free agent center at Cavs headquarters, and by the time Bynum left town, heading to Atlanta for his next interview, the Cavaliers had a two-year deal on the table, worth up to $24 million.
According to Yahoo Sports, the deal would include a team option for that second year, protecting the Cavs in two ways, in case Bynum's knee injuries are an issue again, or in case he bounces back strong, and they want to keep him through the 2014-2015 season.
The Cavs have already agreed to deals with free agent forward Earl Clark and guard Jarrett Jack.
