Andrew Bynum is back in the NBA. Less than a month after being released by the Cavaliers, the Pacers took a flier on the 7-footer signing him to a contract for the rest of the season.
It’s doubtful this move does all that much to change the balance of power in the Eastern Conference. Bynum will likely only provide depth — and hopefully some GIF-able moments sitting on the bench backing up Roy Hibbert. The Pacers currently have the best record in the Eastern Conference — three games better than the Heat.
If the two teams meet in the playoffs, lets hope we see Bynum guarding Greg Oden for a couple minutes.
