07:03 AM ET 07.11 | Free agent Andrew Bynum now has his new NBA home squared away, and the Cavs can hope his injury issues are a thing of the past. After visiting with Cleveland, Atlanta and Dallas in successive days, Bynum chose the Cavaliers' deal on Wednesday night. The agreement includes reasonable incentives on playing time and games played for this season that could pay Bynum $12 million, a league source said. The Cavaliers hold an option for the 2014-15 season worth $12.5 million. For the Cavaliers, the possibility of a Bynum reclamation project taking shape in Cleveland, coupled with All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, will be cornerstones of a recruiting pitch to bring back Miami Heat star LeBron James in the summer of 2014.

cavs may as well trade for Granger, cause I doubt LBJ leaves Miami to return to Cleveland where he was bashed...

Yeah I agree, I can't see him going anywhere near there.

I don't, not after they went around bragging that they got two of the most coveted FA's in Jack and Clark. They deserve the future bowling incident that's on it's way.

I vote that we all leave this thread alone and focus more on the Dwight Howard thread. That would REALLY upset LTCF and the others.

It's not about LBJ wanting to go there... the question do they even want him back there? I'm not a Cleveland fan or live out there but given how he disgraced them I'd think they'd rather not have anything to do with him. Heck I hope he never ever ever wears a Knick uniform... F LeBronCorky!

You have to brag about getting JAck (which by the way i think is a very solid player) since your "superstar" Irving is going to miss 25+ games every year.

Let the Lemmings of FN pronounce their overall wisdom about the impossibility of KBJ coming back "home" but the bottom line is if Bynum does come back and is healthy the team will be very attractive to LBJ when it's time to re-sign a new contract.

Youth = Check
Versatility = Check
Familiarity = Check
Back Home = Check


So checkitty check yourselves before you wreck yourselves.

So, Bynum is the carrot the Cavs are dangling to bring back the prodigal son huh?

They're so pretty...

Then hopefully Bynum meets all expectations. Because they're not good.

Then the king will know just what a failure the Cav-nots are...

This from a very Faker fan who as little as two years ago was so close to Bynum's jockey strap when he played so well that he was able to smell the baby powder between his gonads.

SMDH with these Faker fans.

I will not lie a healthy Bynum is a good Cav's team. I just don't see LeBron going back to Cleveland now. Maybe towards the end of his career to retire but that is about it.

Bynum is the key to getting Lebron back? Hahhahaha! Hawks and Mavs didn't offer Bynum a contract for a reason. Bynum is done that's why he is not even showing any workout. His knees will just be enough to help him walk for the rest of his life. Cleveland has become the recovery center.
