Andrew Bynum suspended from Cleveland Cavaliers indefinitely

The suspension of Andrew Bynum from the Cleveland Cavaliers was announced on Saturday. According to Sports Illustrated on December 28, the talented NBA center has been suspended indefinitely from the team for "conduct detrimental."

It is unclear the specifics that led to this decision to suspend Bynum but a source told Yahoo Sports that he just does not want to play basketball anymore. This poses a huge problem for the Cavaliers, who most likely won't play Bynum again this season.

Andrew Bynum came to the Cavaliers at the start of the season with a 2-year contract that was only partially guaranteed. The team is now in a troubling position because if they don't trade or wave Bynum by January 7, they will owe him the other half of $12.2 million for the 2013-14 season. The remainder of Bynum's 2-year, $24 million contract is not guaranteed and he will likely lose out.

Many speculate that the Cleveland Cavaliers will scramble to trade him with another team looking to free up cap space. Bynum has only played 24 games in his short time with the Cavs. This is better than the zero games he played for the Philadelphia 76ers last season after the Los Angeles Lakers traded him off.
