^Yep. Something like that.

There's no way they can sign him right now unless something happens.

I think Brooklyn would be a fine place for him.

Lopez out, they can have Bynum too. One of them will be healthy while one's out. :man12:

I don't think Brooklyn qualifies for "contender" status.

Also, if Miami really wanted Bynum, they would have waived Oden, Beasley, or Mason Jr today if that's what they wanted to do.

Miami game is based on spacing , that's how they beat teams ... Drew can't barely move , run and would clog the lanes for Wade and James ... makes no sense for them when they already have a "use some fouls on Hibbert" project.

Drew is Floppers bound if he still wants to play

I hope Bynum doesn't go to the Heat. If they're going after him, it's simply to keep other teams from acquiring him. I don't believe they actually want to utilize his abilities beyond being another body to keep Hibbert in check. The Heat are a guard-oriented team centered around Wade-Lebron and Bosh as the 3rd guy. Not exactly big-man friendly.

As hinted by Doc Rivers, the Clippers are probably not going to be looking into getting big man help until CP3 is back. They're not contending if he's not 100%.

The Hawks are an interesting team. They have some nice outside shooters like Korver to keep defenses honest for a big man inside. But I'm not sure if they're contenders even if they acquire Bynum. They can also offer him a little more than vet min.

One team nobody is talking about as far as contenders go is Portland. Lopez is a nice hustle big, but he stinks at guarding post players 1 vs 1. On top of that. Portland is basically a jump shooting team. They really don't have an interior presence offensively. However, their roster is full at 15 players. They'll need to waive a player or trade one away to acquire Bynum. Lopez' brother is currently injured. Portland could send Robin to Brooklyn to fill in for him. It's hard to find starting caliber centers who won't be upset if Brook comes back and puts them on the bench. Robin might fill that need for them.

Another team to look out for is Phoenix. They're way under the cap, so they can offer Bynum more than vet min. They have plenty of 3pt shooters, so he should have space to work in. Bynum gives them an interior presence that they don't have with Plumlee. The Phoenix medical staff is the best in the NBA, and has worked miracles for Shaq, Jermaine O'Neal and others who went there. If they can help Bynum, maybe he'll even return to all-star form.

If Phoenix goes after Bynum and is planning to make the playoffs, I would suggest to trade Pau for Okafor + one of their 4 1st round picks (preferably theirs).

I don't think the Suns need another big body if they acquire Bynum. Plumlee, Frye, and the Morris brothers will probably be enough.

If they take Pau and offer picks, great. But I suspect they may try to shop Okafor's expiring contract for a wing player.

Story going online now: ESPN sources say Suns G Eric Bledsoe out indefinitely after team determines Bledsoe needs surgery on right knee


Hmm...looks like Bledsoe's injury is pretty serious. This will put their playoff push in jeopardy.

They're basically in a similar situation the Clippers are in. I'm not sure Bynum can really help them in their current state.

Bulls Release Andrew Bynum, Clippers Leaning Toward Not Purs

Bulls Release Andrew Bynum, Clippers Leaning Toward Not Pursuing

Image

The Chicago Bulls have waived Andrew Bynum, according to CBS Sports' Ken Berger.

Bynum was acquired in a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers in a deal involving Luol Deng.

Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports that the Los Angeles Clippers are not expected to pursue Bynum due to the issues arising from his time with the Cavaliers.

The Miami Heat will reportedly express interest in Bynum.

Andrew Bynum Receives Interest From At Least 8 Teams

Andrew Bynum Receives Interest From At Least 8 Teams

I'm told 8 teams are interested in signing A Bynum, most notably Heat & Clips. Playing time, contender status & $ all factors in decision.

None of those teams have a shot of contending against Miami or Indiana.

Clippers Increase Internal Discussions About Signing Andrew Bynum

Brad Turner ‏@BA_Turner 2h

Clippers have gone back and forth on Andrew Bynum, but word is Clippers have had more internal discussions about Bynum and are interested


https://twitter.com/BA_Turner/status/421696438158905344

Brad Turner ‏@BA_Turner 2h

Clippers would have to waive a player before they can sign Bynum. Bynum cleared waivers after he was released by Chicago.

First Turner claims that the Clippers are leaning away from signing Bynum. Now they're leaning towards signing him. What's the deal here?

According to JA Adande,

1) Neither Bynum nor the Clippers are interested in each other.

2) He says that the Rockets are interested in him if they can get rid of Asik. They want him to back up Dwight.

3) Adande mentions that the Pacers are interested too, but only to keep Miami or other contenders from picking him up.

He talks about Bynum at the 22:00 mark.

I never thought about the Pacers being involved. That would actually be a nice fit for him. Fits their offense, but probably not their culture.

It would definitely be a gamble, but being able to put Bynum/Hibbert on the court for a full 48 would put some serious pressure on teams.

The Pacers are pretty good defensively when Mahinmi comes in off the bench. He's quick, athletic, and rotates well on defense. But he's also somewhat of an offensive liability. With Bynum and Granger, they could have a nice inside/out combo to bring off the bench.

### Though ESPN continues to mention the Heat as a contender for center Andrew Bynum, his agent said Wednesday night that Miami has shown no interest in signing him. The Heat remains confident that Greg Oden will help them at some point.

How far he has fallen...

going from one of the most coveted players to one most teams wouldn't touch with a cancer pole. Bad luck and immaturity will cost him 100 Mio. if not more.

I would love to see Bynum go to either Brooklyn (lots of minutes) or Indiana (just so the HEAT don't get him). And the darkhorse teams to get him? Atlanta or Portland.

Of course, I would also welcome Bynum back to the Lakers...

I think the Pacers are one possibility. I've also heard Houston could be in the mix.

Interesting. That's the 2nd reporter who has mentioned those two teams.
