Are there any NBA teams who are in the market for a 7-foot center who is just 26 years old? *entire league raises hand* Then step right up and sign Andrew Bynum! Er, wait, where did everybody go?
At this point, there's probably not going to be a huge market for Bynum. But less than 24 hours after trading Luol Deng to the Cavaliers in exchange for Bynum and a handful of draft picks, the Bulls have, as expected, waived Bynum. His contract would have called for him to make another $6 million this season if he was still on the Bulls roster on January 10—for the record, the Cavs already paid him $6 million this season—so the Bulls parted ways with him in order to save themselves a ton of money.
Bynum will now become a free agent. There has already been some speculation about where he might land next—could he become the Heat's answer for Pacers center Roy Hibbert in the playoffs?—but there's also been a lot of speculation about the fact that Bynum might be ready to call it quits. So stay tuned. We should know more about his future in the NBA before the end of the week.
