View Full Version : Report: 76ers looking to acquire starting Center, may trade Andrew Bynum

Buzz: Bynum is still experiencing left knee pain that has kept him from making his debut with the Sixers, but is hopeful he can return sometime in 2013. He becomes a free agent at the end of the season and was expected to command a five-year contract approaching $100 million. His health problems threaten to substantially reduce that number.

One NBA general manager said the Sixers have been making trade inquiries about adding a starting caliber center.

"They got to be a little panicked now," one GM said. "They could get a really interesting deal for him. I could see them doing that."


http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--nba-s-top-trade-candidates-000418190.html

If Bynum wont play this season and they dont want to commit financially to him, why not see if they can get good assets from a team willing to take a risk?

Bynum's knees are such a shame. I was really excited for his debut with Holiday and Turner, especially with Holiday's emergence and Turner's improvement this year.

No surprise here.... and probably a good move for the 76ers. The guy is always hurt, and doesn't even care for the game of basketball anyways. No passion, no leadership, bad teammate, etc. No reliability. Too bad too because he's a talented player.

I think you are unless the team that is trading for that injured player waives the right to do a physical?


Maybe someone can check up on that?



Dwight was still injured when he was traded to the Lakers.

As long as the team waives the physical knowing the player is injured.

If the team that traded away Iggy and a Pick for him doesn't want to keep him and has Brown/Hawes as their Center that should be a red flag for every other trade partner.

They are pretty much stuck with him or they will not re-up him.

The only team who can give him a $100 Million dollar deal is Philadelphia.

There is no way at this point they even give him $70 Million, but some team will.

It's a pretty bad injury though. Considering he has 2 bad knees now that are already arthritic, his value is dropping pretty fast. Also there are issues with his attitude that might scare some teams.

I'm a big fan of Drew, love his game, but paying him 60-100 mill is a scary scenario.

Philly only gave up Iggy(who they had shopped for years), an unproven Maurice Harkless, & an unproven Nikola Vucevic. That is great value for Bynum assuming they can flip him for someone useful.

Miami is the one who has their 1st round pick this year from the Arnett Moultrie trade.

Yeah, he won't get the money he wants until he proves he is healthy and plays well.

But I don't think a deal with Kaman as the main piece would work for a guy who people said was the 2nd best Center in the league last year.

It was a good trade for Philly because they have wanted t let Iggy go for a while now and Evan Turner has room to grow alone.

I don't know how much they'll get from Bynum though.
He is reaching Greg Oden status with his injuries. He'll probably get picked up if Philly waives him or just declines maxing him out but I don't see anyone trading anything for him.

That's a hell of a package, all young players are "unproven".

You make it seem like PHI gave up nothing...lol. 3 1st rounders (2 just outside the lottery) and a 28 year old All star is ALOT!

Yes PHI probably needed to move on from Iggy, but they could at the very least have gotten Afflalo and a 1st from him for DEN if they dealt with them directly. And AAA would have been such a great fit in PHI, along with keeping Vujovic, Harkless and their pick.

I'm wondering if this is smoke screen. Maybe Bynum doesn't want to play in Philly, he let it be known to the Sixers, and stayed injured. I mean he went for the treatment after the trade right?

FOXHOUND
12-15-2012, 03:54 PM
They're looking for a starting center, which Vucevic is proving to be in Orlando. He's also only 22-years old. Orlando has proven to be a genius in taking him instead of Bynum lol, go figure.

12-15-2012, 03:58 PM

I can see Dallas going for it, if he does indeed become available. Right now his value is shot, adding injuries onto the already value killing lack of contract. They have to go all in, being Dirk is questionable as it is and his time left is seriously short.

Best case: Bynum comes back, is back at his 2nd best center in the NBA level, stays healthy, helps Dallas compete with Dirk and Mayo and becomes their centerpiece for the future.

Worst case: His knees are shot, he doesn't play at all this year. They sign him to a one year deal, if they don't land any other center, so he can go back to playing for a contract and proving himself again. Or, they let him walk and start their new future led by Mayo and co.

If that was the scenario I'd be in 100%. But chances are he will still command big money and a long term deal due to the lack of star potential players in the league.

12-15-2012, 04:23 PM
Who would want him? That's like trading for Greg Oden. I can see teams giving up a mediocre or expendable player, but only a foolish GM would trade away someone good for Bynum who could never play well again. Who could absorb his contract and attitude? Maybe for a 2nd round pick or Kosta Koufos? Philadelphia would probably have to absorb a bad contract too.

Romo2Bryant
12-15-2012, 04:24 PM
I could potentially see Hornets giving up Ryan Anderson and Robin Lopez. The Hawks always wanted a real center so they might consider trading Josh Smith or Al Horford. Another team is the Suns they could trade Marcin Gortat and Channing Frye... I can see more teams but those teams sounds realistic destinations.

I personally wouldn't trade someone good for Bynum, but I can see a GM making a gamble...

Chronz
12-15-2012, 04:25 PM

Can you name any center making Bynum type money that they would want? Or any combination of an expiring contract and prospective center? Its pretty hard to find any realistic options.

How do I say this...

A team that is trading for Bynum doesn't have to give up a lot of assets. He can't last an entire season carrying a team, so all stack teams have to do is sign him for the cheap when this seasons ends, or trade draft picks and fillers for him.

The HEAT can do that easy, you are thinking a team has to give Philly Gold and get back copper knees...smh

I personally wouldn't trade someone good for Bynum, but I can see a GM making a gamble...Maybe Phoenix due to Frye's heart condition and Gortat's frustration. Atlanta would never give up Horford/Smith for a broken shell like Bynum. I doubt NO would take such a risk either. Anderson could be traded for more.

how when the guy has knee problems that will bother him for the rest of his career? It wasn't a smart move and the sixers with Iggy took the Celtics to 7 games in the con finals. Bynum knees are made of glass. Thats like trading for Amare. It doesn't make sense

True but doesn't Bynum hate basketball? He prefers to make as much money as possible over championship. He won't take less money, yet alone substantially less money like a vet min.

Laker fan here, trust me when I tell you this: Bynum is not worth it.

Any team that gets him will cringe and have heart palpitations every time he falls. His knees + the fact that he's a 7+ feet + his lack of killer instinct and desire = Fail.

He will crush whatever franchise he goes to if they pay big money for him. He gets injured while already injured...he's that kind of guy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIhTeh3UYtw

On a serious note, I think to Denver for Javale McGee makes the most sense. Denver might take the risk that Bynum can put them over the top and make them a contender...even if it's just for 1 year. I doubt they would give him a max deal. McGee is basically expendable to them. It might put 2 knuckleheads in a better situation.

no where does it say we are considering trading him and if you have seen our Centers you would understand that we desperately need one right now.

Gasol for Bynum, have Dwight start at PF

I have such a hard time believing that you are really as dumb as you sound on this forum. However with each post you make you just dig yourself deeper and deeper in how your perceived here.

how when the guy has knee problems that will bother him for the rest of his career? It wasn't a smart move and the sixers with Iggy took the Celtics to 7 games in the con finals. Bynum knees are made of glass. Thats like trading for Amare. It doesn't make sense

um maybe bcuz Bynum stayed healthy all season last year in a year where players were dropping like flies.

On a serious note, I think to Denver for Javale McGee makes the most sense. Denver might take the risk that Bynum can put them over the top and make them a contender...even if it's just for 1 year. I doubt they would give him a max deal. McGee is basically expendable to them. It might put 2 knuckleheads in a better situation.

Cavs are better off waiting until Bynum's contract ends, then potentially signing him. Imagine if they could get a good piece or two for Varejao, draft a top 3 pick, then sign Bynum in the offseason. That would be nice!

nene has a huge contract he hasnt lived up for

sixers wouldnt trade bynum for nene anyways, injured bynum or not.

if sixers are only gonna get crappy pieces in trade bait, they would decline all offers and either take the risk and resign bynum or simply jus let him walk away

Well that's true but someone like a NeNe maybe amderson.v since he's 30 n the rest od the team is in young 20's Idk if verajo will stay past his contract whats he got 2 years or 1

I can see him coming off the HEAT bench and playing 55 games a year... Saving him for a playoff run.

Bynum needs to go to a stack team, because he will not be able to handle a long season carrying a team.

I feel the best teams for his knees are Detorit and Phoenix. Detroit did do a heck of a job with Dice and Webber.

Bynum and Dwight were both injured when they were traded this last summer.

Boy am I glad he's gone .He's seems like a cool cat and probably a chill person to hang out with, but as a professional athlete the guys a ****ing clown. I mean the kid has mad potential to be something special. He rather bone *****es and party. I guess it's hard for kids to be handed millions of dollars and be smart with it and smart with their decisions.

YouAreSoWrong
12-15-2012, 08:07 PM
Ok...

I say this with every post...I don't post often...but with how dumb some people are I have to...

Cold Hard Facts

**BYNUM WILL NOT GET 5 YEARS 100 MIL. I keep seeing people say..."yeah he will demand it"...you won't be able to demand that type of money after this injury. He will get a healthy amount of money dont get me wrong...but not 100 mil 5 years.

**LAST SEASON VS. THIS SEASON. WINNING % SIMILAR. People are acting like this was a GOD awful trade for the 76ers. I'd gladly like to entertain anyones alternatives to making that deal at the time it was made...where we thought he could even be ready for the opener. We get rid of Iggy, give up our young center, give up our top 1st rd pick...and how has that influenced our winning %??? Pretty much hasn't. Take a Gamble. Trade Your Best Player. Hasn't Paid Off. Same Win %. I'll take that ANY DAY...and Evan Turner has flourished with minutes.

**Bynum STILL has value. Someone said he's almost at Greg Oden Status...STOP. Dude couldn't sniff a court without hurting something. Bynum at least has played in over 50% of his games in the 3 seasons prior to this one. Also, Bynum is considered a top Center when healthy. Oden was never. Trade Ideas for Kaman, etc. STOP. He's worth more than that. You won't get a superstar but you will get a team that has a star/a player on his way to being one that could take a gamble on him.

**Teams like that in my mind:
Bobcats (Kemba Walker)
Cavs (Kyrie Irving)
Rockets (James Harden)

3 Teams that have some pieces to work an attractive package to offer the sixers that isn't insulting but acknowledges it's a gamble. And they get to keep THEIR star.

We don't need to necessarily get a Center back in the deal either...but with those 3 teams- Biyombo (verry raw, only 20 but real good potential), Varajaeo, Asik...those are good pieces to start with that give us a solid Center and some young pieces to build with/draft picks.

If it doesn't pan out...they really didn't lose anything devastating to the franchise...and it can't hurt us from our end.

There's no doubt we're looking for a starting C, but we're not trading Bynum to get him, that just doesn't make sense.

We have a lot of wings who are underperforming right now, Nick Young and Dorell Wright (ESPECIALLY) who could fetch a decent C, certainly not a starting caliber C, but hopefully one that can at least contest a couple shots here and there.

I'd take any center in the league over Spencer Hawes. That much is certain.


Such a damn shame because Jrue (18.5, 3.9, 8.9) and E.T (15.4, 7.2, 4.1) are finally becoming the backcourt that we'd hoped for.

With Bynum at C the I'd say the Sixers would have a chance at being contenders, without him, we're stuck in mediocrity once again.

Also Rod thorn is not our GM anymore for people who keep mentioning him js.
Id say its a safe bet to say we are looking for a center. but Bynum wont be offered in any way
The only way i could see Bynum being traded is a sign and trade atfer the season.

True but doesn't Bynum hate basketball? He prefers to make as much money as possible over championship. He won't take less money, yet alone substantially less money like a vet min.

If someone is willing to give him another big pay day, I don't blame him. I just thought he would like winning more rings, while having NO pressure on him for the next 3 years.

No one should give him over 50mil... I am serious!

I'm pretty sure Bynum was just talking out of his *** when he said that.

he hasn't even had the big Dec 20th checkup so how can he know that its only another month or so worst case? If that's the worst case scenario what is the best case? 2-3 weeks? because I certainly don't see that.

76ers should definitely hold on to Bynum, because when healthy he is the clear cut 2nd most dominant center in the NBA.


If healthy, Jrue + Bynum is a core that you can build a contender around. Its all about winning chips and a healthy Bynum gives them the best chance at competing for one. You don't trade that for 5-7 seeds for years to come.
