Andrew Bynum

  1. Tyler Zeller added weight this summer thanks to Krispy Kreme

    Sep 11, 2013, 12:25 PM EST

    Tyler Zeller

    This is the time of summer when the reports are flying that “Player X lost 15 pounds and is in great shape” or “Player Y added 10 pounds of muscle this summer.” All such claims should be taken with all the salt you would take late-night infomercial claims of weight loss/muscle gain. What makes Cavaliers…

  2. Brad Stevens talks in coachspeak, doesn’t have Rondo timeline

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:45 AM EST

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens sat down with Comcast Sportsnet New England and said… not much of consequence. A lot of coachspeak. There was another non-update on a Rajon Rondo timeline. “He’s been very diligent when he’s been in town. … A couple of young guys came into the gym and just having him here…

  3. Andrew Bynum says he is on schedule for return… but doesn’t know schedule

    Sep 5, 2013, 11:31 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    There is no date set yet — Cleveland learned the lesson of putting a timeline on things watching the Philadelphia 76ers. It could be the start of training camp, it could be later. Based on history, maybe much later. But make no mistake, Andrew Bynum says he is on track to return this season and…

  4. Tristan Thompson’s free throw percentage up 20 points right handed

    Sep 2, 2013, 8:59 AM EST

    BASKETBALL-QUALIFIER-BRA-CAN

    Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson is left handed… and not a terribly good shooter that way. Last season he shot 39.7 percent beyond five feet from the rim and 60.8 percent from the free throw line left handed. Thompson went with a radical fix: start to shoot right handed. Don’t laugh — it’s working. Through his first…

  5. How this time of year works: Cavaliers working out 40 guys to pick camp invitees

    Aug 28, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Josh Childress, Draymond Green

    This is how it is around the NBA right now: Some teams still have a roster space or two available, others do not, and there is a cluster of pretty talented players trying to get those spots. Even just the spots that are an invite to a training camp where they stand little to no…

  6. Anderson Varejao saves the day for two stranded travellers

    Aug 21, 2013, 1:20 PM EST

    Anderson Varejao, Ekpe Udoh, Doron Lamb

    Imagine you, like me, speak only English. You’re visiting family in a foreign country where nearly nobody speaks English. When it’s time to fly home, the airport can be a scary place. Your family can go only so far with you before reaching an area only for ticketed passengers. But with very specific and detailed…

  7. No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett officially signs with Cavaliers

    Aug 21, 2013, 8:01 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett from UNLV reacts after being selected by the Clevland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    Anthony Bennett is still recovering from shoulder surgery, but his arm is working well enough to sign his first NBA contract. The Cavaliers have officially signed Bennett to his rookie deal, which is for four years and a little over $22 million, the team announced. Bennett was the surprise No. 1 overall pick out of…

  8. Lakers biggest challenge: Adapting tradition to changing times

    Aug 15, 2013, 1:01 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    The legend, the tradition of the Lakers is not in question. In the past 14 years the Lakers have seven trips to the finals and five titles, and since the Buss family took over it is up to 10 titles. In the past 30 years they have simply been the best run, most successful franchise…

  9. Kyrie Irving deflects questions regarding his future

    Aug 11, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    kyrie

    Kyrie Irving is one of the best young players in the NBA right now and the centerpiece of a Cleveland Cavaliers squad that could develop into a very good team in a couple of years. The team’s point guard was hesitant to confirm that he’d still be a Cavalier when the team’s potential meets reality,…

  10. NBA releases 2013-14 schedule, here are your opening night and Christmas Day matchups

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After several notable leaks over the past couple of weeks, we finally have the official version of the 2013-14 NBA schedule. Let’s get right to it by taking a look at the slate for some of the key dates in the season. OPENING NIGHT: Tuesday, October 29 MAGIC at PACERS: The first game of the…

  11. Nerlens Noel dances “Gangnam Style” with children (VINE)

    Jul 30, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    2013 NBA Draft

    So, apparently Nerlens Noel‘s knee is at least this healthy. Sixers fans just LOVE to see their injured centers dancing. This could become a meme. That said, this isn’t nearly as offensive as the last one, this one really isn’t at all. Not much else to say here, other than thanks to Dan Devine at…

  12. It took Jrue Holiday five minutes to get over being traded

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:59 PM EST

    Jrue Holiday

    A couple years ago the Philadelphia 76ers looked like an up-and-coming team — Doug Collins had them playing good defense, they had Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner to go with Andre Iguodala. There was some reason for hope… then the gamble on Andrew Bynum went bad. Very bad. Now the Sixers are rebuilding and Holiday…

  13. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  14. New Sixers CEO apologizes for Andrew Bynum debacle, preaches patience

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:02 PM EST

    Scott O'Neil

    It was a gamble, but I still contend at the time the Philadelphia 76ers made a good one — they had a chance to get Andrew Bynum fresh off a season where he played in 60 of 66 games (it was the lockout year), averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, and shot 55.8…

  15. It’s official: Kyrie Irving is on the cover of NBA Live 14

    Jul 25, 2013, 2:09 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Kyrie Irving, here is the sign that you have really arrived. We told you this was coming, but now it is official: Irving will be the guy on the cover of NBA Live 14, EA Sports announced Thursday. EA announced a couple of years back they were returning with the Live series, hoping to challenge…

  16. Andrew Bynum makes backhanded dig at Lakers fans

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:34 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum was introduced as the newest Cavalier and said all the right things — if he is right and Kyrie Irving is right that is a dangerous team. I think we all expect Irving to be right and an All-Star; with Bynum everybody is wait-and-see. At his introduction Bynum stuck to the company line…

  17. Andrew Bynum’s contract contains no performance-based incentives, just $6 million guaranteed

    Jul 23, 2013, 2:05 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum’s contract with the Cavaliers will pay him between $6 million and $24.79 million the next two seasons. The two-year deal, the details of which were revealed by ShamSports.com, calls for base salaries of $12,250,000 and $12,540,000. However, only $6 million of the first season is guaranteed if Bynum is waived before 5 p.m.…

  18. 76ers replace risk-taking front office with risk-taking front office

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Sam Hinkie

    Confession: I liked the Andrew Bynum trade for the 76ers. They were a middling team capable of making the playoffs but without the proven ability to win a series unless the opponent’s top player was injured. Their roster had limited flexibility, and two starters, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala, were aging. The 76ers didn’t necessarily…

  19. Kyrie Irving says he has no intention of leaving the Cavaliers

    Jul 22, 2013, 9:54 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    LAS VEGAS – Kyrie Irving is already playing at an All-Star level for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and earned the honor in just his second NBA season. He’s unquestionably the player who will lead the Cavs to the playoffs and beyond in the future, provided the team continues to make smart roster decisions as it appeared…

  20. Mike Brown says Andrew Bynum, if healthy, will start at center for the Cavs

    Jul 20, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Portland Trail Blazers

    Now that Andrew Bynum is officially a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers and plans to be healthy enough to play a full season for his latest team, if that ends up happening (which, admittedly, would be a small miracle), there’s no doubt in the coach’s eyes what Bynum’s role will be. Bynum has proven his…

  21. Andrew Bynum says he plans to play a full season with the Cavaliers

    Jul 19, 2013, 12:41 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum, Chris Grant

    Andrew Bynum was introduced to the media in Cleveland on Friday, and appeared as relaxed as we’ve seen him in quite some time. The reason is that after an entire year of failing to meet even the most basic of expectations in Philadelphia due to injury, and being badgered consistently with questions about a return…

  22. 76ers receive permission to interview Bulls assistants Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin

    Jul 16, 2013, 9:56 PM EST

    ed-pinckney

    The 76ers traded their lone All-Star, Jrue Holiday, for a rookie and a draft pick. They let their player with the most potential, Andrew Bynum, leave in free agency. All signs say they’re not really interested in winning next season. It’s a sound plan – bottoming out to get better – but it’s a also…

  23. Oden to meet with Kings, Mavericks, Pelicans

    Jul 15, 2013, 11:21 AM EST

    Greg Oden

    Smart money says Greg Oden signs with either the San Antonio Spurs or the Miami Heat. But he’s not going to limit his options and talk to other teams, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Free-agent center Greg Oden will be in Las Vegas this week for face-to-face meetings with officials from the Dallas Mavericks,…

  24. Who is left on free agent market? Pickings getting slim but a few good players out there

    Jul 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    Free agency has been open for more than two weeks now and most of the big names are gone, not just Dwight Howard but also guys like Andrew Bynum, Mike Dunleavy, Al Jefferson, Andrei Kirilenko, Quentin Richardson, Nick young and more. But there are a few name guys left on the market. Guys with flaws…

  25. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…
