Cavaliers Suspend Andrew Bynum Indefinitely

Dec 28, 2013 12:47 PM

The Cleveland Cavaliers have suspended Andrew Bynum indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team.

Cleveland will begin aggressively looking to trade Bynum, according to sources.

The team has until Jan. 7 to decide if it will guarantee his contract for the rest of the season.

Sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski that the Cavaliers believe Bynum has been a "disruptive" presence within the team and have lost hope that a partnership can be salvaged. Wojnarowski reports that it is very possible that Bynum has already played his final game with the Cavaliers.
