Cavaliers make offer to Bynum

CLEVELAND – Andrew Bynum has a new team waiting for him.

The enigmatic free-agent center, who didn’t play a single second for Philadelphia last season because of knee injuries, is mulling a two-year offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers, a person familiar with the negotiations told the Associated Press on Tuesday.

Cleveland made the offer, which includes a team option in the second year, during his visit to the Cavs’ facility Monday. Bynum did not work out but the team examined him thoroughly.

Yahoo Sports first reported Cleveland’s offer and said it was worth $24 million.

Cleveland has competition in its pursuit of Bynum, who was scheduled to meet with the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday and is expected to visit Dallas today.

It’s not clear when Bynum will make his decision. The NBA’s free-agency moratorium period ends today.
