Chalk this one up to the blatantly obvious.
Speaking to Chris Vito, new Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie said he felt it was fair to call the acquisition of big man Andrew Bynum a failure.
Hinkie said it’s fair to call the Sixers’ trade for Andrew Bynum “a failure.”
Bynum of course was acquired in a four team offseason trade last August in which the Sixers sent fan favorite Andre Iguodala to the Denver Nuggets. For those who need a bit of a refresher on the move, here is the complete four team swap:
The Sixers received Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.
The Nuggets received Andre Iguodala.
Bynum, who never even suited up for the 76ers spent more time on dance floors, playing with his hair, bowling and cramming himself into his absurd amount of small luxury cars than doing any actual basketball related activities.
Thankfully for the Sixers, assuming they want to wash their hands of it all, Bynum and his near $17 million dollar salary are no longer on the books as he’ll enter free agency this Summer.
