Andrew Bynum Clears Waivers

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein (via Twitter), Andrew Bynum cleared waivers as of 6PM Eastern time and is now free to sign with any team, with the exception of the Cavaliers. Technically speaking, it should be noted that if Bynum were to eventually desire playing for the Cavs again, which is highly unlikely at this point, he’d be unable to sign with them until July.

Yesterday, we passed along that as much as eight teams showed interest in signing the former All-Star, and that the Heat and Clippers were among Bynum’s top choices as potential landing spots. As ESPN’s Chris Broussard also pointed out, playing time, contending status, and salary are all factors in determining the 26-year-old center’s interest (Twitter link). Miami can offer anything up to their mini-mid level of $3.2MM, whereas the Clippers are only equipped with a $1.19MM veteran’s minimum.

Based on Doc Riversrecent comments about his roster, the Clippers don’t appear to be actively scouring the free agent market for a big man. As for the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel (via Twitter) doesn’t get a sense of overwhelming desire from Miami’s end.
