Could Andrew Bynum Be A Mid-Season Target?
« on: December 15, 2012, 12:18:15 PM »
....of course this is dependant on alot of things

1.) Will he ever be healthy enough to play this year?

2.) Could/would the Celtics be able to lock him long-term, beyond this season?

3.) Would Philly ever consider trading him to another team in the same division?

Those 3 questions aside, I've got to think a package of Lee, Bass, Green, Bradley and/or Sullinger would be able to get you Bynum.

Then (if healthy) the Celtics lock up the 2nd best center in the NBA for years to come.

I think Philly would rather have the cap space than have Bass/Lee eating up their cap space for the next couple of seasons.

I do think there is a small chance Philly considers moving Bynum if they are uncomfortable enough about his health and decide they will not resign him in the summer. And I do think Bynum could be had for a low price in that scenario ... but Boston doesn't match up trade package wise.

I don't know if I would want to give up assets and then sign him to a long term deal considering his knee issues. He might be done. That's a huge risk to take.

  He's had 1 healthy season in 8 years. So you'd be fairly lucky to get a healthy season out of him if you locked him up long term and extremely lucky to get more than 1 healthy year.

  Ever see any old Westerns where a guy in a casino puts a big pile of chips on a number on the roulette table, the owner gulps down a large shot of whiskey and shouts out "go ahead, spin the wheel!"? That's how I'd imagine deciding to offer a contract like that to Bynum would look.

That is the HUGE risk. He maybe done. On the other hand, if he gets healthy, boy...!

Is there some sort of an insurance thing ala Peyton Manning in the NBA? In case he Bynum can't play? Then again, maybe I'm answering my own question because if there is, then it shouldn't be a problem for any teams to sign him.

Even if there is some insurance option for the salary, which I doubt, the salary would still a team's cap space for years.

But you can amnesty the contract to clear cap space. Then again, i doubt that there's an insurance thing. So it's a really risky move.

I might as well wait for Blatche and offer him 4 years/20 million.  ;D

  I think you can only amnesty contracts that were in place when the CBA was signed.

Heck, no.  ;D

Seriously, though, he's made of glass, and has a huge attitude problem. I don't know if the NBA allows contract incentives, but the only way I'd take Bynum is on a vet min contract loaded with performance incentives.
"There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'"

"You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body."

He'll neever be NBA heathy again as he once was...

Bynum is done as the guy who took the Celtics to task years ago. At best he might see the court again with injections to lub up the knees, bone on bone is a BAD thing.

As the wear continues , the injections of artifical lubricates to replace the missing cartilage becomes less effective and doesn't last him as long .  His first one made him into SUPERMAN and helped sink the Celtics.

 He needs a modern medical miracle that alot of us need (me included) replacement cartilage that just isn't quite ready for humans (stim cell grown cart.)....its here for horses yes. athough very expensive.

Maybe a couple more injections and he is done.

Although in that scenario, the house (owner) usually wins at odds of 36 to 1.

In that scenario, we're the guy putting up the chips, with the odds severely stacked against us.

Huge risk that could set us back years.

I hope not.   What is the attraction with crippled guys here? It's almost a fetish.  Perk, Bynum and Oden these guys are beyond damaged goods.
