Bynum says he will 'definitely' play for the Cavaliers this season

By Jason Lloyd Published: September 30, 2013

INDEPENDENCE: While no timeline for a return has been established, center Andrew Bynum says he’ll “definitely” play this season.

The Cavs were the only team willing to take a $6 million chance last summer on Bynum, who missed all of last season with the Philadelphia 76ers. He is running up and down the floor, working on basketball moves and dunking, but he is not yet playing 5 on 5 and everyone within the organization is careful not to put a projection of when to expect him to play.

Sports reported Sunday night that Williams, a 6-foot-5 guard and former first-round pick, has signed a non-guaranteed deal with the Cavs.  He was drafted 22nd overall by the Portland Trail Blazers in 2010, but has missed significant time to knee and shoulder injuries. He has played in just 24 games, all during the 2011-12 season, and missed all of last year with an Achilles injury.

This is the first time they've made it a private event. The team is working with the United Service Organization (USO) of Northern Ohio to coordinate ticket distribution.

Undrafted rookie Matthew Dellavedova has signed a two-year contract with the Cavaliers for about $1.3 million, but only a small portion of this season’s deal is guaranteed, a league source confirmed Thursday. The signing was first reported by Australian media.

Dellavedova averaged 2.8 points and 3 assists in five summer league games with the Cavaliers after leaving St. Mary’s as the school’s all-time leader in scoring, assists, games played, free-throw percentage and 3-pointers. He played for the Australian Olympic team last summer, but the biggest knock against him is a lack of athleticism.
