New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson has lavished praise on the Indiana Pacers for their decision to sign Andrew Bynum.
Former Cleveland Cavaliers center Bynum was traded to the Chicago Bulls in a deal that saw Luol Deng seal a move to the Quicken Loans Arena.
However Bynum was quickly waived by the Chicago Bulls as they used the move to simply get Deng off their wage books.
The Knicks were said to be interested in bringing Bynum to Madison Square Garden but were beaten to his signature by the Pacers.
Bynum reportedly rejected the chance of moving to the Knicks because of non-financial matters.
However Woodson is not bitter about Bynum's decision to join the Pacers.
Speaking to the New York Post, Woodson said on Bynum: “I think it’s an excellent move.
“I think Bynum is a big force in the middle if he can play. It’s a positive move.
"He had shown signs with Cleveland. He’s had his fair share of injuries too, but they just added another big load to their roster."
Bynum, who joined the Pacers on February 1, could make his debut against the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday evening.
Tonight's game in Atlanta will see two of the top three sides in the Eastern Conference go head to head at the Philips Arena.
