The Cleveland Cavaliers will be the place that Andrew Bynum will call home as he is reportedly signing a two-year deal with the Cavaliers.  According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, a person with direct knowledge to the deal stated that it is a partially guaranteed contract that could pay as much as $24.5 million.

via USA Today:

The first year of Bynum’s deal with the Cavs is guaranteed for $6 million, with incentives that could make it worth as much as $12 million. The second year is a team option worth $12.5 million.

There is no question that Bynum has the skills to help a team win games.  In his first seven season he was playing the All-Star type basketball that had many talking as if he were going to be one of the best bigs in the game.  He does have two rings to account for that when he helped the Los Angeles Lakers win in 2009 and 2010.
