Philadelphia 76ers Have No Plans To Re-Sign Andrew Bynum

Not exactly shocking news, but the Philadelphia 76ers have not held contract discussions with impending free agent Andrew Bynum and apparently have no desire to do so.

Bynum, who was acquired by the Sixers last year in a four team trade never played a game for the franchise and was reportedly seen in a handful of less than flattering incidents which could have put his rehab in jeopardy.

Because of that, along with having hamburger knees, new 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has little to zero interest in bringing Bynum back to the City of Brotherly Love.

Per the AP, via ESPN:

Bynum did not receive an enthusiastic endorsement from new general manager and president Sam Hinkie at his introductory press conference in May.

“I think of Andrew like the thousands of other young men walking around the world that are unrestricted free agents that have potential to play NBA basketball,” Hinkie said. “He is one of those. I’m duty bound to consider them and look at them. All of them.”

Ouch.
