Detroit Pistons May Want to Keep Will Bynum

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Will Bynum might be worth keeping on the Detroit PistonsNBA roster.

It’s almost been a foregone conclusion that Bynum won be back next season. That probably will continue to be the case. He’s had enough of playing for a team struggling to get above .500. Bynum wouldn’t mind going to a team that has a real shot for an NBA title.

The Pistons are obviously hoping to get to that level eventually and want to build around their younger players, which is why someone like Bynum assumes that his days will be numbered.

But it depends on hat happens with the draft and other factors. If the Pistons decide Rodney Stuckey is too much of a pain and they want to get rid of him, they may need Bynum to fill a hole at the guard spot.

The 82nd and final game of the season for Detroit gave Bynum a chance to audition for whichever team wants him to play for them next season.

He put on quite a show when the Pistons played the Brooklyn Nets. To end the regular season. He was in for 22 minutes but what is so impressive about Bynum is the efficient way he uses his minutes. He doesn’t fool a round on the courts. He was 7-of-10 from the floor and 9-of-11 from the free throw line for 23 points and had one assist. He also had six turnovers, which isn’t good, but the Nets were putting on extensive pressure in that game and had 13 steals.

Buynum is certain to get a good contract for next season and to be paid very well. He probably will look strongly outside of Detroit unless the Pistons decide they want to keep him and give him an offer he can’t refuse.

The Pistons may want think about this very carefully.
