According to Philadelphia Inquirer, the Sixers are potentially looking to make Will Bynum an offer when he becomes a free agent on July 1st. The six-year veteran is also drawing interest from other teams because of his aggressive style on offense and impressive strength as a guard. Bynum is only six-feet tall but is coming off a solid season as a reserve, averaging 9.8 points and 3.6 assists in just 18.8 minutes of playing time.
The move makes sense for Philadelphia, a team that only has sub-par backups in Curtis Jenkins and Royal Ivey whenever Jrue Holiday takes a seat. Come July 1st, it will be interesting how the team’s new GM Sam Hinkie handles free agency, who related to Andrew Bynum as “just another free agent” during his inaugural press conference.
Regardless of what takes place in the upcoming Draft, the Sixers are set to shake up a roster that put together a disappointing 34-48 record this season. Philadelphia slid to the Semifinals in 2012 and were looking to go further with Andrew Bynum this year, but everything that could have went wrong, went wrong.
