Lakers ex-center Andrew Bynum has been suspended indefinitely by the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to USA Today.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have suspended Andrew Bynum indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team, general manager Chris Grant announced Saturday.

Bynum has not bought in to what the Cavaliers are trying to accomplish, and with a young a team, he had turned into a negative influence, a person familiar with the situation told USA TODAY Sports.

Bynum’s post-Lakers career hasn’t been much to write home about. After the trade that brought Dwight Howard to Los Angeles and sent Bynum to Philadelphia, Bynum has sat out a full season following another knee surgery and has now been suspended by the Cavaliers who are desperately trying to move him.

Bynum signed a two-year, $24.5 million deal with the Cavaliers this summer, but is only is only guaranteed $6 million of that deal should be be waived by the team before Jan. 7.

The Cavaliers may try to trade Bynum before the Jan. 7 deadline and if he can’t be moved, they may waive him to avoid paying his full contract.
