Making moves

NORMAN — Bynum meets with Cavs: CLEVELAND — Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wondered what other moves general manager Chris Grant had in mind to improve Cleveland this summer.

He knows now.

The Cavs hosted free agent center Andrew Bynum on Monday, a person familiar with the visit told The Associated Press. The 7-foot Bynum, who didn’t play one game for Philadelphia last season because of a knee injury, met with team officials at Cleveland Clinic Courts, the club’s suburban facility, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of negotiations.

On Sunday, Gilbert went on Twitter to applaud the team’s acquisition of free agent forward Earl Clark and guard Jarrett Jack, who both agreed to terms on deals with Cleveland last week. On his page, Gilbert wrote: “I am more than excited about (at)TeamEarlClark & (at)JarrettJack03 joining the (at)cavs! Two team players that flat-out make us better. What’s next CG?”

Bynum’s meeting with the Cavs was first reported by ESPN.

Nuggets to get Foye: OAKLAND, Calif. — The Denver Nuggets will get something back for Andre Iguodala after all.

The Nuggets have agreed to separate sign-and-trade deals that will land them guard Randy Foye from the Utah Jazz and send Iguodala to the Golden State Warriors, a person familiar with the decision said Monday.

The Warriors had planned to sign Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million deal as a free agent last week. Instead, the restructured deal will give Golden State more salary cap flexibility, deliver Denver a $9 million trade exception and help Utah build for the future with expiring contracts and draft picks.

The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Monday because teams are not allowed to confirm moves until the new league year begins Wednesday, says the original Warriors-Jazz deal remains intact.
