Andrew Bynum

  1. LeBron: Heat ‘didn’t have much of a reaction at all’ to Pacers signing Andrew Bynum

    NEW YORK – Andrew Bynum ended up signing with the Pacers on Saturday, after several teams reportedly had an initial interest in his services, including the defending champs. Miami ultimately didn’t pursue Bynum, and he landed on the team that figures to be the biggest obstacle to the Heat returning to the Finals for a…

  2. Report: Luol Deng shocked at mess that is the Cavaliers

    Feb 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    When Luol Deng was traded from the Bulls to Cleveland, he was coming from the only team he had known in his nine-plus NBA seasons. His Chicago teams, especially under head coach Tom Thibodeau in recent years, have been the epitome of professionalism in pursuing winning above all else. The Cavaliers, apparently, are the complete…

  3. Larry Bird says notion that Pacers signed Bynum to keep him from Heat is ‘the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard’

    Feb 1, 2014, 9:30 PM EST

    larry bird pacers

    The Pacers signed Andrew Bynum for the remainder of the season, and some think it was a move based purely in defense — off the court, much more than on it. Indiana has been the best team in the East over the first half of the season, and team chemistry has been at at all-time…

  4. It’s official: Pacers sign Andrew Bynum for rest of season

    Feb 1, 2014, 11:02 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    UPDATE  #2 11:02 a.m.: It’s official, the Pacers have announced that Andrew Bynum has signed with Indiana for the remainder of the season. Bynum had wanted to play for more than the league minimum (we don’t yet know the details of the contract yet but the Pacers could offer more than the minimum) and for…

  5. Cavaliers GM Chris Grant rips team for “lack of effort”

    Jan 30, 2014, 1:39 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Cleveland Cavaliers

    I imagine Chris Grant’s seat is feeling a little warm. He’s the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that has been awash in high draft picks in recent years — including last season’s No. 1, used on Anthony Bennett — who was told by his owner publicly it’s time to start making the…

  6. Greg Oden blocks Jeff Green’s dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2014, 9:46 PM EST

    greg oden jeff green

    That is Greg Oden, the injury-riddled Heat big man who debuted with the team last week, starting to look like the guy the Heat hoped they were getting. The guy who can make a defensive difference in the paint. In the second quarter of the Heat/Celtics game Tuesday night, Boston’s Jeff Green got the ball…

  7. Greg Oden says knees feel “fine” after game action, could play Friday vs. Sixers

    Jan 17, 2014, 12:43 PM EST

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Greg Oden was back for a night and that alone was worth celebrating — he dunked, he started the second half, he played more than eight minutes, scored six points and he wasn’t the reason Miami got it’s doors blown off by the Wizards. He said felt good after the run, which means we could…

  8. Greg Oden makes first regular season appearance since 2009, dunks almost immediately (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:02 PM EST

    Greg Oden

    Greg Oden was a part of the Heat’s active roster on Wednesday, meaning that it was likely he’d see his first action of the regular season on the road against the Wizards. Oden was a reclamation project for Miami, a long-term gamble the team hoped would pay off by the time the postseason rolled around…

  9. Does trading Joel Anthony mean Heat are going after Andrew Bynum? Maybe.

    Jan 15, 2014, 7:59 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It was obvious why Golden State wanted Jordan Crawford as the centerpiece of the three-team trade that went down Wednesday — Stephen Curry has played more minutes than any point guard in the league this season and they need to get him some rest the second half of the season (not to mention the whole…

  10. Greg Oden activated, will be in uniform and could play vs. Wizards Wednesday

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:03 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Greg Oden could play in an NBA Game tonight for the first time since Dec. 5, 2009. The Miami Heat have activated Oden and he is in uniform as the Heat take on the Wizards in Washington, reports Tom Haberstoh of ESPN as well as other sources. Whether he gets on the court or not…

  11. Andrew Bynum learning the market for his services isn’t that strong

    Jan 13, 2014, 12:18 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum missed all of last season in Philadelphia — well, basketball season, he got some bowling in. He got into 24 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season but saw his minutes dwindle as he is shooting just 41.9 percent and his rebounding percentage dropped. He was average on the court, at best. Combine…

  12. Report: Cavs may hold off on contract talks with Luol Deng in hopes of pursuing LeBron James

    Jan 13, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    LeBron James Cavaliers

    When the Cavaliers ridded themselves of an unhappy Andrew Bynum and traded for Luol Deng, it was a short-term decision aimed at helping the team compete for a playoff spot in the miserable Eastern Conference this season. Deng is an unrestricted free agent this summer, so the deal amounts to nothing more than a half-season…

  13. Report: Pacers become latest team to express interest in Andrew Bynum

    Jan 12, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When Andrew Bynum was traded from the Cavaliers to the Bulls and then immediately waived in a move to shed salary, several teams, including the Miami Heat, reportedly expressed initial interest in acquiring his services. The East is unquestionably going to come down to a battle between the Heat and the Pacers, so Indiana must…

  14. Andrew Bynum clears waivers, is officially a free agent

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:06 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    As of 6:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, Andrew Bynum has cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent. A quick reminder of how we got here — Bynum was suspended by the Cavaliers for “conduct detrimental to the team,” a short-term solution while they attempted to trade him before his contract would become fully guaranteed…

  15. Luol Deng says Bulls made take-it-or-leave-it offer, he did not ask for $15 million

    Jan 8, 2014, 8:42 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    How badly did the Chicago Bulls really want to keep Luol Deng? The two sides couldn’t reach an agreement on an extension last summer. It had been reported since Deng was traded to Cleveland for Andrew Bynum that the Bulls had made a last ditched take-it-or-leave-it offer to their All-Star small forward and he turned…

  16. PBT Extra: Fallout from Bynum/Deng trade for Bulls, Cavaliers and Bynum himself

    Jan 8, 2014, 6:42 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    It’s been the talk of the NBA and it’s the talk of the latest PBT Extra — the Cavaliers/Bulls trade of Andrew Bynum for Luol Deng. Kay Adams asks me what a lot of people have — is this it for Bynum in the NBA? No, not in the least, but how much he gets…

  17. Pau Gasol’s night at “The Lion King” almost ruined by false trade rumor

    Jan 8, 2014, 4:14 PM EST

    Actors of the musical "The Lion King" pe

    There were a whole lot of Andrew Bynum for Pau Gasol trade rumors out there last weekend, ones that never came to fruition because the Lakers wanted pieces to help them down the line (young players or picks) and the Cavaliers had no intention of giving those up because they already had the Luol Deng…

  18. Reports: Eight teams reach out to Andrew Bynum; Heat, Clippers at top of list

    Jan 8, 2014, 11:39 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Cleveland Cavaliers

    No, Andrew Bynum’s basketball career is not over — NBA big men with skills get more comeback chances than Brett Favre. Bynum was traded from Cleveland to Chicago for Luol Deng and the Bulls instantly waived him in a salary dump. When Bynum clears waivers Thursday eight teams will be lined up to take a…

  19. Nets get $5.25 million disabled player exception approved for injured Brook Lopez

    Jan 8, 2014, 8:45 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s been well-documented that the Nets will have the league’s highest payroll this season when including luxury tax costs, a bill that will total in the neighborhood of $180 million when all is said and done. The league offered Brooklyn a small amount of relief on Tuesday, granting the Nets a disabled payer exception worth…

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    We’re baaaaaaack. After taking some time off during the holidays Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio and I are back with the latest PBT Podcast and we discuss the topic of the day — the Andrew Bynum for Luol Deng trade and what that means for both the Bulls and the Cavaliers going forward. Then, after…

  21. Report: Warriors among teams interested in trading for Kirk Hinrich

    Jan 7, 2014, 5:42 PM EST

    Kirk Hinrich

    It would be a mistake to use the word “tank” with any Tom Thibodeau coached team, because he would not allow his teams to roll over like that. However, with the trade of Luol Deng it is clear Bulls management has moved on from trying to win this year (they brought the band back to…

  22. Andrew Bynum, Stephen Jackson top list of players waived Tuesday

    Jan 7, 2014, 4:23 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Today was essentially cut-down day in the NBA. Any player on the roster come Jan. 10 has his contract guaranteed for the full season (even if he is let go), and as it takes 48 hours to clear waivers players have to be let go of Tuesday (5 ET) to make that deadline. There were…

  23. Luol Deng-Andrew Bynum trade could backfire on both Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers in short term

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:15 PM EST

    Luol Deng, Alonzo Gee

    The Luol Deng-Andrew Bynum trade signaled two teams hoping to go opposite directions in the short term. The Cavaliers clearly want to make the playoffs. Dan Gilbert has said so, and the franchise’s moves reflect that goal. I wouldn’t go as far as saying the Bulls clearly want to miss the playoffs, but when you…

  24. Will Cavaliers make the playoffs after trading for Luol Deng?

    Jan 7, 2014, 10:14 AM EST

    luol deng

    The deal between the Bulls and the Cavaliers that went down Monday night was all about the long-term for Chicago, and more about this season in Cleveland. Luol Deng will be a free agent this summer, and after reportedly turning down a contract extension worth $30 million over three years, it was clear he was…

  25. The Extra Pass: Winners, losers from Bynum/Deng trade (plus Monday’s recaps)

    Jan 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games.  That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…
