Bynum, who the Bulls would have owed $6.3 million, and several draft picks were shipped Monday from Cleveland to Chicago for two-time NBA All-Star Luol Deng.
The 26-year-old Bynum, who in July signed a two-year contract with the Cavaliers that could have been worth $24 million, was suspended infinitely last month for conduct detrimental to the team.
A fragile and moody giant, it was evident from the outset that Cleveland banged the pooch when they chose to partner with the freeloading Bynum.
Essentially fired as a 76er by Sam Hinkie, Bynum was the last individual that general manager Chris Grant needed polluting Cleveland’s roster.
Although 11-23 and badly underachieving, the Cavaliers are an organization on the brink of rocking.
With Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson and Anthony Bennett, Grant has assembled a quartet of lottery talent.
Now employing a gritty forward, the 28-year-old Deng will perfectly complement Cleveland’s youngsters on the hardwood.
Comparatively, a superior force in the paint when happy and mobile, Bynum could have excelled working alongside Irving.
Unfortunately, even in a shrunken league where the invaluable center position is nearing extinction, the 7-foot, 285-pound Bynum is a bitchy gimp whose joints make him less stable than Amanda Bynes on peyote.
Bynum is now loathed by basketball fans in Philadelphia and Cleveland.
Strictly because of his upside and the lack of potential drawbacks, expect the Miami Heat to soon hire the angry behemoth.
Inevitably, within a span of two months, Andrew Bynum will become detested in the “Capital of Latin America.”by
