When the Chicago Bulls acquired the contract of Andrew Bynum last night from the Cleveland Cavaliers, we all knew they were sending it straight to the shredder. The Bulls are looking like a pretty messy organization at the moment but even they aren’t dysfunctional enough to keep Bynum around.
Neither are the New York Knicks, at least according to beat writer Marc Berman. While the Knicks were initially mentioned as a team having interest in the free agent center, Berman states that no inquires have been made about Bynum, something he suggests says the Knicks believe they have enough personalities as it is.
#Knicks one of few teams who have not at least made inquiry into Andrew Bynum. Guess they have enough interesting personalities on club.

The Clippers were another team to have pulled their name out of the running for Bynum but that still leaves the Miami Heat, the primary team folks think Bynum will end up. Miami signed big man center Greg Oden in the offseason, suggesting that they’re all good at the position, but as they found out last postseason, you can never have enough front court height and Bynum fits the bill.
New York could still emerge as a landing spot, but changes are they’ll sit this circus out, which is wildly surprising.
