When the Philadelphia 76ers traded Andre Iguodala to acquire Andre Bynum, they knew what they were getting themselves into. Bynum is a massively talented player with all of the physical tools to be one of the best players in the league. They also knew that he has serious injury and maturity issues, which have been huge issues this season.
Bynum’s knees have prevented him from playing all year, and people are beginning to wonder if he will be back on the court any time soon. He is a free agent after this season, and the 76ers took a risk acquiring him without assurance that he would re-sign with the team.
It looks like the 76ers might be starting to get a little nervous. Via Yahoo:
One NBA general manager said the Sixers have been making trade inquiries about adding a starting caliber center.
“They got to be a little panicked now,” one GM said. “They could get a really interesting deal for him. I could see them doing that.”
Could you imagine the 76ers dealing Andrew Bynum before he even plays a game for them?
It sounds ridiculous, but there are a lot of things going on here that could make it a possibility. He could leave in free agency, and the team might be looking to get a return on him. Or maybe they’re reevaluating their decision to acquire him in the first place.

The former Lakers center—who has made headlines for off-court reasons this season—made some comments regarding his old teammate, which Kobe responded to in turn.
Andrew Bynum sure seems comfortable in Philadelphia, as evidenced earlier this week when he opted to wear slippers sans socks at a hotel bar before heading to a local upscale Gentlemen’s Club, Penthouse Club Philadelphia, for some late night entertainment:

The thing I love about Andrew Bynum lately is he will say whatever and he doesn’t care about your personal opinion, he lacks discretion and judgement and while it may displease 76rs fans, it’s a freakin delight to nearly every other fan base in the league.

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum took the occasion of a game against his former team to take a bit of a shot at former teammate Kobe Bryant. Bynum, 25 spent seven seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, and he averaged a career-high 18.7 points last season before he was dealt to the Lakers in a four-team trade last summer. Speaking of playing with Bryant, Bynum told reporters...
In an interesting ready by ESPN Los Angeles, Andrew Bynum offered his opinion on playing with NBA All-Star Kobe Bryant. This comment had such perfect timing since the Lakers played the 76ers last night and the fact that Bynum was traded to Philadelphia this past summer in order to get Dwight Howard. Bynum felt that playing with Kobe really hurt his game due to the fact that the...
For someone who has yet to play a game for the Philadelphia 76ers or prove that he can be a difference-maker for their franchise, Andrew Bynum is awfully confident. While it’s still incredibly early, you could make the argument at the moment that the Los Angeles Lakers were better with Bynum than they are with Dwight Howard. A number of other factors are at play, but Bynum still...
So Andrew Bynum got serious when interviewed prior to the Lakers-Sixers game last Sunday - telling ESPN how he felt his growth as an NBA player was hampered by playing alongside Kobe:
"I thought it really helped me a lot obviously at first, because he draws so much attention it's hard for guys to double team and key on you, so it helped me tremendously," Bynum told...
Andrew Bynum says his ailing knees are "feeling much better."
Andrew Bynum is 7 feet tall and supposed to be one of the NBA’s best centers.
Instead, he’s spent most of this season working back from knee injuries amidst reports that he’d rather be bowling (which complicated one of the knee injuries) or just not playing basketball at all. Still, Bynum has apparently found some room to throw stones when it comes to explaining why his career...
