01:45 PM ET 07.08 | The Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to keep their free agent options open for 2014, so they're willing to giving former Los Angeles Lakers big man Andrew Bynum a one-year offer to show what he can do. Both the Cavaliers and Bynum are scheduled to meet today (hopefully not at a bowling alley) in a face-to-face sit down. It's never been a question of talent for Bynum, more of a desire issue which is somewhat sketchy. Now add in the injury risk and you have yourself a pretty iffy scenario. That said, for a one year run, it makes complete sense for the Cavaliers to see what they can get out of him.

Cavs or Mavs have the inside track?

1-year experiment is fair enough. But why pay $15M???? Can't the experiment be done for $8M? It isn't like there is a TON of demand for Bynum. I would be shocked if Cuban is willing to shell out any more than that to Bynum.

Because there's always one team that overpays. whether its Cleveland or Dallas, they might be disappointed in what they paid for. Glad hes not going to NOLA

And LA loves Cav rejects, case in pt Jamison and in the future they will go after LBJ.

If anything, the Cavs are LbJ rejects.

Lot's of bowling alleys in Cleveland.

I am not 100% sure why but I can't stand this dude. Gets traded and sits out the entire year. Yeah... sure, too injured to play. BS

I wouldn't give him anything more then a 1 year deal, and maybe an option for the 2nd year. As a Sixers fan, he was an utter disaster last year not even playing one game. From what I have been reading from many beat writers is that many doctors are saying he was never cleared to play last year and the Sixers should have never traded for him. The Sixers rolled the dice hoping that he would be able to play sometime later in the year, but the Lakers knew he was tainted goods. Bynum's problems on his knees are degenerative, so I believe he will be a Bill Walton the rest of his career where you just don't know how many games a year you are going to get out of him. And don't get me started on how bad this guy's attitude is....
