NBA Rumors: Brooklyn Nets not interested in signing Andrew Bynum

When the Chicago Bulls acquired the contract of Andrew Bynum and promptly sent it to the paper shredder, the rumors about where Bynum would land began. As many as eight teams are interested in signing the troubled center but teams are starting to take their names out of the running, and that includes the Brooklyn Nets.

Despite having a Disabled Player Exception worth $5.25 million which was approved last night, the team doesn’t seem to be interested in bringing in Bynum to replace Brook Lopez.

It would have made sense for the Nets to at least kick the tires on Bynum as they need a replacement for Lopez who is out for the remainder of the season. Yesterday it was said that the Knicks were out on Bynum because they had enough personalities on the team as it is. If the Knicks have too many problems to add Bynum as one, you can imagine how little the Nets are interested in adding another potentially explosive situation to their plate.
