INDEPENDENCE, Ohio – Just minutes after signing with Cleveland, Andrew Bynum proclaimed the Cavaliers to be a playoff team.

Whether his ailing knees allow him to be the starting center remains to be seen.

“Getting my career on track is my only goal for the season,” Bynum said Friday at his introductory news conference Friday. “The Cavs have given me every opportunity to succeed, and we’ve put together a plan. I really believe in the doctors here and the training staff.

“I want to play a full season, and there is no doubt in my mind I can do that.”

Bynum, who underwent surgery on both knees in March, signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Cavaliers, officially ending his star-crossed stay with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Notes

The Los Angeles Lakers promoted Mark Madsen, the former Stanford player who was part of the team’s 2001 and ‘02 title teams, to be a player development coach.

• The Dallas Mavericks signed free-agent center Samuel Dalembert to a deal reportedly worth $7.5 million over two seasons, putting them a step closer to securing another overhaul of their starting lineup.

• Former Washington Husky Justin Dentmon scored a game-high 23 points for the Mavericks in a Las Vegas Summer League game against the Chicago Bulls. Dallas lost, 94-87.
