A report from Yahoo’s Mark Spears says that Bynum will not work out for teams interested in signing the 25 year-old center who didn’t play a game for the Sixers last season. Bynum’s agent David Lee said that there are about a half-dozen interested teams. Lee says that teams will be provided with an MRI and medical reports

http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/07/01/andrew-bynum-wont-work-out-for-teams-who-want-to-sign-him/


How can any team sign this guy to a contract worth anything more than $5M/yr knowing all this? Bynum is the kind of greedy ***** that I can see ending up in jail in the future for fraud.

This is like insane. Why would any team give him a good contract without even seeing him workout?

That's like the car salesman asking you to buy the car but refusing to allow you to test drive it after knowing the car was in a collision and was in the shop for a year.

I can't wait to laugh at whichever team ends up signing him. If they sign him after all this, then they deserve the chaos that this idiot will create. And I bet anything its gonna be a team that loses out on the Dwight sweepstakes that signs him.

A team with nothing to lose like Atlanta should sign him.

They should give him a 2 year contract, $10M a year, 2nd year team option ($1M guarantee).

lol because of his size and skills the hook is almost always gonna be baited, but the next sucker to take the risk can't say they didn't know. with his serious past injuries, unprofessional attitude, poor work ethic, and a lack of passion for the game i wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.

I said to someone at work today that if was a ballzy GM I'd announce that "I have formally offered Bynum the vet minimum and he has 72 hours to take it. If he is not willing to work out that he's saying he's not willing to get paid."

We should make a poll, who deserves more money next season Wil or Andrew Bynum

Jesus this guy must not want to be liked by his new coach/organization. This is basically saying I clearly am not ready/injured/don't want to play and I don't want to work out for you so pay me and see.

This all happens after he sits on the bench for philly all of last year.....

If I'm a GM I tell him to take a hike..

I read this on B/R or ESPN so idk how true this is but they said teams can offer a contract and put some clause in it that voids the contract if any pre-existing injury comes back up, is that true?

Bynum is gonna get maxed most likely. All it takes is one GM at risk of being fired to risk money that doesn't belong to him. Hopefully he gets and stays healthy though. Everyone who can play at a high level I'd like to see doing just that.

He knows this is his last contract for big money and he also knows his knees are shot (degenerative knee condition). I'm willing to bet he can't do a fraction of what he used to be able to do or he would be showcasing himself for a big-fat contract. But he isn't doing that, probably because he can barely walk around comfortably never mind running and jumping.

cssdmark
07-03-2013, 09:47 PM
His contract would be all incentive based. Salary depending on how many games he plays, points, rebounds everything incentive based no guarantees. Every team in the league should stick to the same and if he does not want to sign this kinda of contract, go play in China. See ya.

Just you watch.....the guy knows what he's doing because some desperate team will take the gamble and he knows it. Somebody believes he will be ready come next season and dramatically make them better. Jokes on them not Bynum.

I like to see Bynum come to the Lakers IF Howard decides to leave. He is still an all-star caliber player. Can't pay him too much though. He has to prove himself again. Who ever gets him will be getting a solid player when healthy.

True Sports Fan
07-03-2013, 11:08 PM
You'd think this would be hurting his stock, but some poorly run franchise will surely pay for him. Any deal with more then one season with more then 9M per year is insane given his injury history. Injury aside is he worth max? Most likely, or pretty damn close to it.

waveycrockett
07-03-2013, 11:21 PM
I can see the Bucks offering him a MAX deal

AussieLaker
07-03-2013, 11:26 PM
If he cant do any work outs, how much would you give him? Jefferson money or higher?

Hopefully he does come back and doesnt have any more freak injuries.

It's called an "Exhibit 3 clause" is the same thing that Brandon Roy had in his contract with the T-Wolves. It lets the team release that player with no penalty if a prior known injury resurfaces.

He is going to get a one year offer, but not anywhere near the max. I can see him signing for one year with a team that will put him in a good situation at a bargain to prove himself again so he can shoot for a max contract next offseason. I still think the Spurs are a great fit for him if they don't end up with Gortat. Wherever he goes I see him getting one year at $5-7 million.

I honestly could've seen the Bobcats as a suitor for Bynum until they signed Jefferson. Atlanta can sign him and move Horford to the 4. Houston could look to him if they don't get Howard. Dallas could make moves for Bynum too. Bynum makes sense for Dallas since they want to get a "star" to build a contender. Could Boston make a move too? I wouldn't be so sure to say definitively, but Bynum was talented when he was healthy. I think his personality is easier to deal with than Dwight at times. Bynum should prepare to take a 1 yr $10 mill offer or something along those lines because nobody should commit long term to him. If someone gives him 3 yrs $45-$54 mill, that would be insane.

Why yes, it was. I am sure he made contact with the slippery floor in the Bowling Alley by walking onto the lane by accident. Still, teams covet size, scoring, and boards. Al Jefferson was my favorite C on the market imo because he has talent. Too bad he will be a Bobcat.

I don't think he had a fair chance in Detroit. I know that, if given the right opportunity, Will Bynum could thrive on most teams as, at worst, a backup point guard. I don't agree with his decision to hold out from practice, but he may believe that he has already shown on the basketball court all he is capable of.

Andrew Bynum Optimistic, Still Unsure Of Return Schedule
Sep 05, 2013 1:23 AM EDT

Andrew Bynum moved to Cleveland a week after his introductory press conference with the Cavaliers and has been training in the team's practice facility.

While Bynum believes his rehabilitation from knee issues has gone well, he is not fully sure of a return schedule and is focusing only on improving his health and game.

"It's a fluid process,'' Bynum said. "I have no idea what the schedule's going to be for me. But I'm doing everything I can to be ready. I think with the program that has been made up, we have a good chance.

"I'm optimistic I'm where I should be. Obviously, I want to be playing. But I'm taking baby steps, doing what the team and the doctors tell me. I'm doing my part. I come to work every day. I'm moving in the right direction.''

Bynum has not been cleared for full-court basketball, but he is on a three-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week regimen.

"I'm doing everything I can do to get back," he said. "That's what all this is all about for me right now. I just want to play."


Lol I like how Bynum says there's a good chance...there's only a chance? There's no guarantee that he'll play this season?

And he still doesn't know if he'll even play this season. Doesn't even know when he'll play this season.

Even though its only a 1 year contract, I feel like the Cavs overpaid for him. Bynum should have got like $2M/yr contract. He's too much of an idiot to deserve more imo.

It's a two year contract $24M contract, but even in the first year only $6M out of the $12M is guaranteed. So basically if it is looking like he won't play this year they can cut him and avoid the full amount.

But nonetheless, it needs to be pointed out:
Andrew Bynum - Cleveland Cavaliers - $12.25M
Greg Oden - Miami HEAT - $0.8M
