Really? When did he turn down $58M?


Right after the trade. Philly stepped up, offered him the 3-year max totaling $58 million. And FWIW, Mitch told Drew that Philly would offer up the extension...and that he should take it. But Drew and his agent thought they could gamble on those defective knees, make it to 2013 FA healthy and get the full 5 years.

Agents are just screwing up their players these days. Never heard about this, can't believe I slipped over it.

Guess Philly's counting their blessings now...that just saved them a lot...he's probably not worth a max deal let alone the $58M given his knees...

Here's the situation. The max extension that Bynum could have gotten from the 76ers in August would have been 2 years due to CBA rules which wouldn't have allowed the 76ers to sign him to a 3 year extension until 6 months after the trade. If he and 76ers did agree to extend, it would have been planned to take place in February if it was to happen at all.

Here's the ProBasketballTalk article mentioning the February 10th details.

As of Feb. 10 (six months after they traded for him) Bynum could sign a max extension, which is three years at just shy of $60 million.


http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/09/25/sixers-bynum-not-talking-extension-which-is-to-be-expected/

Here's the CBA FAQ mentioning the 6 months clause.

Conversely, a team cannot extend a player it receives in trade for six months, if the extension exceeds the limits of an extend-and-trade1.


http://www.cbafaq.com/salarycap.htm#Q92

In other words, Bynum passed up on a 2 year extension if the extension was even offered by Philly in August or September. I doubt that Philly was really interested in only keeping Bynum for 2 years anyway, especially since they could offer him 3 years in February, so my guess is that an extension was never offered. A 2 year extension wouldn't have made sense to Bynum or Philly at that time.

Bynum's injury issues this season have probably brought any talk about an extension between Bynum and the Philly FO to a halt, if there were any in the first place.

I really don't think he ever took care of himself in recovery. His knees are bad but I can't see how he never recovered had he done rehab right.
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

Some team will still offer him a contract if Philadelphia opts not to BUT Bynum is looking to be a very risky investment. There were talks of Houston going after him.

WTF wow, that is messed up. That is so unfortunate. I feel bad for dude.

Here is more from yahoo.

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nba--andrew-bynum-to-have-season-ending-surgery-on-both-knees-000052759.html

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his knees Tuesday and miss the rest of the season, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The primary focus of the procedure will be to clean out loose debris in the knees, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

Bynum, 25, was the centerpiece of the 76ers blockbuster deal in the summer, and it's possible he'll never play a game for the franchise. Bynum has missed the entire season with knee problems and will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. He made $16.9 million this season in the final year of his contract.


Bynum has degenerative knee problems and his career could be in jeopardy. After two knee surgeries in his sometimes spectacular seven-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, Bynum came to the Sixers as part of a three-way deal with Orlando that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers.

At least now he will have more time to fight his arch nemesis the Philadelphia security guard, David Dunn (Bruce Willis), who slowly discovers that he is a superhero.

He's on a one way path to Brandon Roy territory. Degenerative knees, 7 footer and basketball don't tend to work well with each other. .

^ Absolutely. And some Bynum fans here thought he'd be the type to be relatively healthy later in his career rather than earlier. What a charade.

Wow....The Mr. Glass analogy is even more ironic with the "Philadelphia security guard" plot point.
