By now you have probably heard the news that Andrew Bynum had been suspended indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team, and that the Cleveland Cavaliers will look to trade him before the remainder of his two-year, $24 million contract becomes guaranteed on Jan. 7. Would anyone want him? All character issues aside -- and there are plenty of those -- this is still a player who started for the Western Conference All-Stars just two seasons ago. And 7-footers, even former All-Stars with kne
Andrew Bynum is going to spend the next several weeks getting into shape and waving a towel for the NBA-leading Indiana Pacers, who have no plans to rush him into action after signing him last week.
Is that a plan that makes sense?
In this interview with Jody MacDonald of CBS Sports radio, we debated that question -- and I weighed in with the opinion that it is better to have a third option at center behind Roy Hibbert and Ian Mahinmi than to sit back and watch Bynum sign elsewhere -- perhaps even with an Eastern Conference contender that the Pacers might meet in the playoffs.
Jody Mac, because of his Philadephia roots, did not exactly agree.
It make for a lively back and forth as part of an around-the-NBA discussion. Enjoy.

The Pau Gasol-for-Andrew Bynum trade talks appear to be dormant but not dead. The Lakers would like to get another worthy asset thrown into in the deal ... but so would the Cavs. And you know what? I have to side with the Cavs and general manager Chris Grant on this one. By taking Gasol's $19.3 million salary off the Lakers' books, they will drop Los Angels below the luxury tax threshold, saving the Buss family in the area of $20 million. But that's only the start of it. The Laker

I have already made my thoughts known on the Luog Deng-Andrew Bynum trade in a column, the gist of whih is that the big loser in this deal was the Lakers. Go ahead and click through and give it a read as you listen to this audio from the NBA's Sirius-XM radio channel, in which I go into further detail about why Mitch Kupchak blew a golden opportunity to set the Lakers up for having a spectacular team -- and not having to pay the repeated luxury tax -- in the 2015-16 season, when Kobe Bryant
