What on earth should the Philadelphia 76ers do with Andrew Bynum? They traded a bunch of quality players for who they thought was going to be a franchise guy and then Bynum didn’t play the whole year and gets shut down early.
You’ve got to think that Bynum will be more than willing to give the 76ers the first shot at resigning him, but should they?
It likely depends on the price. Bynum showed last year that when healthy he can be a dominant center in the league. The problem is you can only really call that one season his healthy one. If Bynum wants to be paid like a superstar, then they need to let him walk.
If he wants to be paid in the 7 to 8 million dollar a year range, then the Sixers might still be in the mix. Something tells my Bynum will want more than that though.
The real question though, if the Sixers aren’t interested, then who on earth would be interested in Bynum after the debacle that was the last few years.
My heart goes out to Doug Collins here. He did a great job coaching that Sixers team last year and his whole season was basically ruined by the Bynum trade. My good wishes go out to Bynum and his knees. Here’s a hint for him though; hang up the bowling shoes.
