INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Pacers are adding size and scoring to the Eastern Conference's best team Saturday, signing free agent center Andrew Bynum for the rest of the season.
Team officials did not release additional details of the contract. He is expected to join the team next week.
Because Indiana had an open spot on its roster, it will not have to make a roster move to add the mercurial 7-foot-1, 285-pound backup to All-Star center Roy Hibbert.
Bynum has played only 24 games since the 2011-12 season ended. He played with Cleveland before ''conduct detrimental to the team'' forced a trade to Chicago, which then released him. He was averaging 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds this year with Cleveland and has career averages of 11.5 points and 7.7 rebounds.
