1H: Bynum picks Cleveland

  • he’s been one of the best Centers in the League and is still really young.

  • he signed with Philly last year when the Lakers got Howard. But he never played a game due to injury and was a distraction off the field.

  • He’s an immature guy and refused to workout for teams this offseason.

  • The Mavs really wanted him, but couldn’t offer as much $$.

  • If healthy, he makes us a playoff team for sure. Only ½ of $12M guaranteed in 1st year. We paid that much to LUKE WALTON last year!!!

  • We also control his 2nd year.

  • If not healthy, then it was just a 1 year experiment and doesn’t preclude us from signing anyone in the big 2014 free agent offseason.

2H: Cavs Make Some Signings

  • Jarrett Jack gives the Cavs some depth in the back court.

    • 8 year veteran can play both G positions.

    • Signed to a 4 year deal.

    • Became available when GS signed Andre Iguodala and needed to shed payroll.

    • With Kyrie and Dion, we can have a 3 guard tandem if we want to play small ball, or have nice depth (like when we had Ramon Sessions).

    • Ex-Cav free agent G Shaun Livingston then signed with the Nets.

  • Earl Clark

    • 6’ 10” Forward.

    • signed for 2 years, $9M.

    • Played for Brown in LA for 5 games before Brown fired last year.

    • Hasn’t stuck with any team yet. Since drafted in 2009 by Phoenix, also has played in Orlando and LA.

    • Took 15 3pt shots in 1st 3 years, then 104 last year. (shot a good 34%)
