NBA rumors: Mavericks, Cavaliers targeting Andrew Bynum

Over the weekend, Marc Stein of ESPN reported that the Dallas Mavericks have “legit” interest in free agent center Andrew Bynum. Since then, the Cleveland Cavaliers have joined the Mavericks as “a prime team to watch” in the Bynum sweepstakes, according to Stein.

If Bynum proves healthy enough to command a multi-year commitment, Stein notes that the Cavaliers are unlikely to sign him. However, they can offer the big man a lucrative one-year deal. They are hoping to conserve cap space for an eventual run at LeBron James next summer.

Meanwhile, the Mavericks are thoroughly evaluating Bynum to see if he’s worth a multi-year contract. The team was previously pursuing center Dwight Howard before he signed with the Houston Rockets.

Beyond the Mavericks and Cavaliers, the Atlanta Hawks are the only other known suitors for Bynum, according to Stein. However, sources tell him that guard Monta Ellis is the team’s priority at this point.
