The SportsXchange

Andrew Bynum has reportedly agreed to join the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN.com reported Wednesday evening, citing "a source close to the situation."

CBSSports.com's Ken Berger reported later that Bynum, who missed all of last season due to knee issues, had reached agreement with the Cavs on a two-year, $24 million contract. Berger stated that only half of the contract is guaranteed, with the second year of the deal being a team option.

Bynum had spent the previous three days meeting with Cleveland, the Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks and came to a decision afterward, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

No other details of the deal have been announced as yet.

Bynum spent 2005-12 with the Los Angeles Lakers before being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in a four-team deal last August.

In Bynum's last full season, with the Lakers, he averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds.
