Will Andrew Bynum ever wear the 76ers uniform in a game? Will Andrew Bynum ever play a game for the Philadelphia 76ers? That’s what fans are wondering now that Jason Wolf of USA Today Sports reported Bynum, after experiencing a setback involving swelling in his knee, is considering season-ending arthroscopic surgery. On Sunday, 76ers GM Tony Dileo said, “He is plan A” in regards to how they want to build their team. The 76ers have to be disappointed at this point. When they acquired Bynum, they thought they were getting a player who many believe is the second best center in the league. Adding him to an already talented roster that includes Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, and Thaddues Young, was thought to make the Sixers Eastern Conference darkhorses, but Bynum’s knees won’t allow that. With Philadelphia currently 5.5 games behind a surging Milwaukee Bucks squad for the 8th and final playoff spot in the East, it’s hard to imagine they make a push without their best asset. If and when they miss the playoffs, attention will shift to Andrew Bynum’s impending free agency. Many feel the 76ers have to offer him a long term deal at the max while others feel they should cut bait and look for a center elsewhere. Either way, Bynum, who is just 25 years old, needs to get his knees completely healthy if he wants to regain his form as a top tier center in the NBA. What do you think? Should Philly re-sign Bynum to a max deal? Should they wash their hands by getting rid of the guy who doesn’t wash his hair?
