“Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum has been suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today. Bynum did not travel with the team to Boston last night for the team’s game this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. vs. the Celtics and has been excused from all team activities indefinitely. His status will be updated as appropriate.”
It’s most likely that Andrew Bynum has played his last game as a Cleveland Cavalier. Earlier in the year he hinted at a possible retirement and losing his love for the game.
The Cavs are now looking to trade the star center. He’s owed around $6.5 million – if the Cavs were to trade him before Jan. 7, when all contracts are guaranteed, they would create additional cap space.
One team that may be interested in Bynum are Atlanta, who lost Horford recently. He’ll be moved if teams feel he still has enough interest to play, which may be a hard sell to some teams.
For all those interested: It’s Andrew Bynum Fathead night at the Q tomorrow!
