DALLAS -- According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Philadelphia 76ers free agent center Andrew Bynum has a face-to-face meeting scheduled this week with the Dallas Mavericks.
Bynum, according to the report, also has face-to-face meetings with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Atlanta Hawks.
After losing out on Dwight Howard last week, the Mavs have made Bynum an important piece they would like to add to their free agent puzzle this summer. Bynum, though, is in a buyer-beware situation since he didn't play at all this past season for the Sixers and underwent arthroscopic surgery on both of his knees in March.
In his last season with the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2011-'12 campaign, Bynum averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds in 60 games. He also was the Western Conference starter in the 2012 All-Star game.
