NBA News: Pacers Officially Sign Center Andrew Bynum

After three weeks of waiting around for the right opportunity, former Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum has found a new home once again. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

The Indiana Pacers signed free-agent center Andrew Bynum on Saturday, the team announced.

Once things began to fall apart with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the two-time NBA champion was made available via trade with the Lakers and Chicago Bulls atop of the list of interested teams. Chicago ultimately ended up acquiring Bynum in a swap for Luol Deng and was immediately waived.

After passing through waivers, Bynum was officially a free agent with a few interested teams like the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers. Despite rumors of the Heat being the frontrunner for his services, Indiana emerged as a potential destination for Bynum.

In 24 games with the Cavs this season, Bynum averaged 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Although nowhere near the kind of production he had with the Lakers before being traded for Dwight Howard a few summers ago, the one-time All-Star is still a solid acquisition for a team aiming for an NBA title at season’s end.

With All-Star Roy Hibbert in the starting lineup and Bynum off the bench, the Pacers are now as deep as any team in the league at the center position.

    yep, now miami has no chance of beating the pacers in the playoffs except of course if any of their key players get hurt… it’s done, Bynum only plays good when his team is a contender

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Yeah good for him.Pacers just got bigger.You’re going down Heat!

  • Dragon7s

    Hopefully the down-to-earth, blue collar culture of the Pacers will have a motivating effect on Bynum.
    If not, I’ve heard there are plenty of bowling alleys in Indianapolis. ;)

    • ranfan

      He better with Bird backing him up lol

  • Mamba Magic

    I see OKC and Pacers in the finals with the former winning it all!

    • nlruizjr

      that’s the way I see it !!!!

  • gm jack

    Pacers has just purchased themselves an NBA title. Miami made the biggest mistake. OKC will have run for the money.

    Pacers sighed Bynum, to eliminate Miami from his service.

    I do not see Lazy Bosh, going against Bynum or Hibbert.

  • gm jack

    Lakers were not using Kaman anyway, it is foolish,that Lakers did not get him from the Cavaliers then, release him and resigned him.

    • nlruizjr

      why, so he could sit next to Kaman, MD does not know what to do with Bigs, there is no way that Kelly should be playing in front of Kaman, if the Lakers keep MD for next season, then they deserve to lose some fans.

  • Andy

    He signed a $1 Million dollar contract plus all the unlimited bowling games he wants!! What a bargain!! Cant say NO to that!! Hahah

  • ra

    He’ll do well when he has to compete with another big for the spot (namely, Hibbert).

    In the meantime, count Miami out. This will help the Lakers in the LeBron sweepstakes. LeBron, Melo / Gasol, Kobe, Love. Here comes championship!
