Howard Eskin @howardeskin

I'm being told by sources the #houstonrockets are ready to offer #sixers C Andrew Bynum a contract after season

http://www.thedreamshake.com/2013/2/26/4033326/nba-rumors-houston-rockets-andrew-bynum-free-agency-2013

I think this would make things really interesting. Philly could do a sign and trade. I think Asik would do well in Philly under Doug Collins.

If Dallas somehow makes the playoffs over the Lakers, I think Dwight will go to the Mavericks so he can avoid playing with Kobe and team up with Dirk and Mayo instead, two guys that would be ok with conceding the 1st option to Dwight. This is pure speculation on my part though, don't attack me Laker fans :p

I don't see this as a prime fit. Harden and Lin need a screener to free them up for penetration. Not a guy who wants to live on the block. I think that would hurt there game just like Brook has hurt DWill's game.

If I am the sixers I would still offer him a ton.... Just would. If it screws us so be it. Bynum is the exact player we need to get us over the hump and be a contender. Prime Bynum/Thad/Holiday/Turner make us a dangerous team for years as long as Bynum is healthy.....What can the sixers get in free agency that would put them over the top that would be better than what Bynum brings when he is healthy?

You have to put a better surrounding cast for Jrue and Bynum. Thad and Turner are kind of below average.

Why would Houston do a S+T, though? Same contract and they'd have to give something up. Wouldn't they be better off just not picking up Garcia's option and then signing him outright?

Turner yes, but Thad's really quite good, and would be especially so next to Bynum.

God, this guy is a clueless fool. Bynum has never ever been considered a top-15 player. And even IF he did have top-15 talen...talent is NEVER enough. A truly GREAT player has to be CONSISTENT!! Has to have a work ethic. And has to have Character. Bynum has NONE of these. He never has. And he will NEVER ever be considered the # 1 option, or a leader of a team. Giving him ANY kind of money is as stupid as it gets!

Houston seems to care very little about spending money. They could sign Bynum play him little minutes and keep him rested for a playoff run. Wouldn't be the worst idea if they continue to just shell out money.

I hate it but what free agent besides Howard is available that could put Philly over the top? Its a huge risk but to contend what other move could we make? I mean actual contention against the big dogs in the Thunder/Spurs/Heat....Healthy Bynum plus Holiday and Thad and that is a scary young core for years to come. I hate that he is an Injury risk but is it not a risk worth taking if you are our organization? We could offer him the max and get burnt or spend wisely and still not come close over the next 3 plus years at hanging with the best teams in Basketball

I would give him the max without a 2nd thought if all came back as well as could be expected from a medical standpoint

More-Than-Most
02-28-2013, 02:12 AM
Phila has to throw all their eggs in the Bynum Or Howard Basket. I see no other long term move that could put us over the top. Holiday and Thad and Turner getting better plus a healthy bynum gives us the best chance at knocking out the heat

not that Bynum's agent will agree, but it better be littered with performance based results, and games played.

02-28-2013, 03:10 AM
I can see Bynum being a max player but not for 5 years. 3 years tops. This guy has proven that even when healthy he misses a ton of games and now his body is broken. How many more games is he going to miss in the future? He's probably on his way out but if I'm Philly I think I give him a 3 year max offer just to save face. Then I'd hope and pray for his health.

Why would Dwight choose Philly over LA/Hou/Dallas/Atlanta? All 4 of those teams are a better fit than the Sixers. A Holiday/Dwight duo is not enough to compete in the East.

Houston is going after Dwight bottom line. Bynum is only going to be in Houston for a one year huge salary with a team option after that. This is the case or they are going to bid him up so another team is forced to spend max on him. Don't worry about Houston. We know what we are doing... cap for a max in 2014 if we don't sign Dwight. This is a fact... Let it be known... Dwight this year in FA or Love next year. We don't care about Bynum or Gasol even if they end up in our team. It's all about the length of their contracts to get us to 2014 FA class.

02-28-2013, 04:15 AM
I don't see anyone offering Bynum a 4 to 5yr Max deal... Like someone stated above, maybe a 3 year deal with a team option after the 2nd season.

I actually think Bynum ends up on a contending team, this way he gets to rest more and take care of his body, and still has a chance at winning rings. I can see Bynum signing a 2 year contract ( to raise his stock again and win a ring or two), then when he has proven that he can stay healthy he will get his big pay day.

it wouldn't make sense for Bynum to be locked up in a none max 4 to 5year contract, so in short, if the 76ers don't offer him a max 5 year deal, his gone.

Let him walk.

shep33
02-28-2013, 04:56 AM
I'm willing to bet that Bynum gets big money... however, I don't think all of it will be guaranteed. Maybe like a team option after a 2nd or 3rd year. It'll be some kind of strange contract situation.

Don't see why every team going after him wouldn't do that. Teams offering him 100 mill, no questions asked... well they deserve to be in cap trouble for the duration of his deal. That's why I just don't see it happening

So it takes 4 years to rebuild from having lost a superstar to injury. So to top it off let's sign another player who has constant knee troubles at the just the age of 26.

Also the system is working great with a blue collar guy (Asik). He gets out of the way and gives the lane to the guards to drive and gets his points on gimmes, putbacks and hustle plays.

The best move would be to get a lockdown perimeter defender like Iguodala (I hope not) or a stretch four like Ryan Anderson or Kevin Love (unlikely). But I feel there are the two types of players that will fit Houston's current system of spread the floor and drive and kick.

Philly should just go in #tanksohard mode. Will probably get themselves... Oh wait its a weak draft class.

Cluster**** all around.

a jrue/healthy bynum/thad combo can push the heat to 6 games imo

mightybosstone
02-28-2013, 10:01 AM
I'll believe this when I see it. There are always a million rumors involving the Rockets and it's usually the deal that no one talked about that ends up getting accomplished. Bynum would be a huge grab for Morey, but the guy's knees are shot, and I don't see how he provides a major long-term upgrade over Asik, who is healthy and had no major injury concerns up to this point in his career. Dwight is still likely Morey's key free agent target, but if he doesn't get him, I could potentially see him going for a second tier guy like Bynum or Smith. I just don't think that's a smart idea. I would rather him trade for a Gasol or Granger to play a single season and then use the cap space the following season to go after the next free agent class or make a run at Kevin Love.

3.Dwight loves endorsements.
4.Dwight knows after next year LA will have capspace to sign another superstar.
5.Dwight loves Hollywood and wants to become a actor.

02-28-2013, 12:28 PM
He can put them over the top or make them perennially mediocre if he isn't healthy. I would avoid him. Asik is pretty solid. They need a 4 who can score to take the load off of Harden. Milsap?

Every GM usually pulls one really bad deal... but this one would be monumentally horrible. I've stood by my opinion that Bynum's been a scrub, and this season pretty much confirms it. He's Brandon Roy with the wrong outlook on making a genuine return. Roy is determined, D-Rose is patient, Bynum is a scrub, a no-show, and festering in a dark corner much to the dislike of the city of Philadelphia.

Asik has yet to reach his ceiling in terms of potential (look at last night's performance), and now that Ohlbrecht is in to relieve him, a really strong 4 is all we need. Try for J-smooth in the off-season, or maybe steal JJ Hickson, or even throw an offer out for a trade for DeAndre Jordan (since the Clips apparently were shopping him before the trade deadline), but Bynum's name shouldn't cross the lips of Morey ever.
