Center Andrew Bynum is expected to have a new employer by the end of the week.

After the Chicago Bulls released Bynum on Tuesday, eight NBA teams have made inquiries to his agent about signing the 7-footer, according to reports.

The Cleveland Cavaliers traded Bynum to the Bulls on Monday for forward Luol Deng and the Bulls subsequently waived Bynum in a cost-savings move.

Among the teams most likely to pursue 26-year-old Bynum are said to be the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Clippers. The Dallas Mavericks and the Brooklyn Nets also are interested, but financial concerns might take those two teams out of the running. Bynum has $6.2 million remaining on his contract this season.

Bynum, who has battled knee problems, is expected to clear waivers at 5 p.m. ET Thursday.

After joining the Cavaliers in the offseason after sitting out last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, Bynum played in 24 games (starting 19) and averaged 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds this year.
