Although Will Bynum isn’t exactly a big name in the free agent market, that doesn’t mean he’s not a hot commodity.
Yesterday, Vincent Ellis suggested that both the Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks have interest in the Detroit Pistons point guard:

And today hinted that in addition to the Lakers and Knicks, the Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers will also have interest:

Bynum, who just completed a 3 year, $10 million dollar contract with the Pistons made a name for himself this season, averaging nearly 10 points and 4 assists in 18 minutes a game.
A return to Detroit is still possible, though, given Bynum’s demand, it’s not expected to come cheaply.
It’s been a rough road to the NBA for Bynum, who originally signed a contract with the Boston Celtics in 2005. After being cut, Bynum made his way to the Golden State Warriors in 2006 before playing in the NBDL and across seas until the 2008-2009 season when the former Georgia Tech product joined the Pistons.
