The Indiana Pacers officially signed center Andrew Bynum over the weekend.
“It really wasn’t a hard decision, I think it’s the right fit for me,” Bynum said in a statement via Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com. “In all honesty, I think we’ve got the best chance of winning. It will be great to back up Roy, and I’ll do whatever I can to help this team.”
Pacers’ president Larry Bird is very happy Bynum chose the Pacers.
“We are obviously happy to have him join our team,” Bird said in a release. “He gives us added size, he is a skilled big man and he has championship experience. With the minutes he gets, he should be a valuable addition.”
In 24 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers this season, Bynum averaged 8.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 assists per game.
