COLUMBUS, Ohio - Everyone from the Cleveland media to Cavaliers players to coach Mike Brown spoke highly of Andrew Bynum's rehabilitation efforts.
"He's progressing fine," Brown said of the former 76er, who signed a free-agent contract with the Cavs this summer. "He's been working hard."
But isn't that what the 76ers said last preseason after acquiring Bynum in a four-team trade that ultimately set them back several seasons? Bynum, who made $16.9 million last season, never played for the team because of chronically injured knees.
"I mean, he just came [to Philly] with a tough situation," said Cavs guard Dion Waiters, a South Philadelphia native.
