Stop me if you've heard this one before: a free agent next summer who's sure to fetch a maximum contract is apparently leaking a list of teams with which he'd sign. No, it's not LeBron James or Dwight Howard, this time, it's Andrew Bynum! Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Sunday afternoon that, barring an extension with the Lakers, Bynum has a few teams on his mind for 2013, when he becomes a free agent. Yes, even if it means he's traded to the Magic for Dwight Howard.
Dallas and Cleveland are among teams with cap space that would interest Bynum in 2013 as a free agent, sources tell Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 8, 2012
Among Bynum's short list of potential free agent landing spots in 2013, Houston is prominent with Dallas and Cleveland, sources tell Y!— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 8, 2012
Howard has previously said he won't sign an extension with anyone but the Brooklyn Nets, and Woj also tweeted Bynum wouldn't likely sign an extension with the Magic if traded there. But, as we've learned with Deron Williams's decision to re-sign with the Nets, an extra $25 million is a lot of incentive to re-sign.
