After the Chicago Bulls waived veteran center Andrew Bynum following the trade to acquire him from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the two-time NBA champion became an unrestricted free agent. Although many different teams supposedly expressed interest in the center, Bynum remains a free agent, but potentially not for long.
Reportedly, the Pacers plan to sign Bynum according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN:

Before becoming a free agent, Bynum was rumored to receive interest from the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers. Once interest from the Heat and Clippers died down, the Pacers emerged as a candidate for Bynum’s services.
Unfortunately for Bynum, no team jumped at the chance to sign the one-time All-Star after he cleared waivers. Despite the fact that the Clippers and Heat appear to be out running by choice, Indiana seems ready to roll the dice on the troubled center formerly of the Los Angeles Lakers.
