by July 06, 2013

After losing out on Dwight Howard, the Mavs are pursing to Andrew Bynum. The team has $10.5 million in cap space after agreeing to a four-year, $29 million deal with Jose Calderon. Per “After moving on from Dwight Howard’s decision to head to Houston, the Mavericks have started to seriously pursue Andrew Bynum, sources told’s Marc Stein. However, the Mavs will proceed with caution due to the degenerative knee condition that caused the 7-foot, 285-pound Bynum to miss all of his lone season with the Philadelphia 76ers. According to the sources, the evaluation process of the 25-year-old Bynum’s problematic knees will be ‘exhaustive.’ The Mavs consider their medical staff, headlined by Team USA athletic trainer Casey Smith and Dr. T.O. Souryal, to be the best in the league. The medical staff, which played a significant role in getting Tyson Chandler’s career back on track after two injury-riddled seasons, could be a recruiting asset in the pursuit of Bynum.”
