Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum told reporters he’ll play against the 76ers Friday night at the Wachovia Center.  The former Sixer added that he’ll sit out Saturday’s contest against Philadelphia in Cleveland.

The Sixers acquired Bynum from the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-team trade in August, 2012. The 26-year-old, who made $16.9 million last season, never played for the team because of chronically injured knees.

He signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Cavs this summer. However, only $6 million of the deal is guaranteed. Cleveland also has a team option for the second season.

Bynum averaged six points, 3.3 rebounds, one steal and 12.3 minutes in the three games he played in prior to Wednesday’s game at Milwaukee.
