Free agent center Andrew Bynum is in town today visiting the Cavaliers, a league source confirmed. first reported the visit.

Bynum missed all of last season with problems in both knees. He was originally diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee in September and received injections in both September and October. He injured his left knee during a bowling event in November and had surgery in March to clear debris from both knees.

The Cavs have between $12 and $15 million in cap space and are prepared to make a significant one-year offer that would consume most of that cap space. ESPN reported Bynum will also meet this week with the Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks before making a decision.
