The Laker Nation can breathe a sigh of relief -- Andrew Bynum has signed an extension. It's three years with a team option for a fourth. I'm not even going to talk about the money, because who can evaluate it? The guy has had 35 good games in his career, plus a nice two games to start 2008-09. The Lakers had to get the deal done, though, because otherwise he'd be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year. They couldn't take the risk that he'd be as good this year as he was last year, or better, and thus became a guy that every single team in the league wanted. Locking him up was the only option.
