Andrew Bynum’s season will end before it began. The Philadelphia 76ers center is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery on both of his knees. Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news and says the surgery will be to clean out debris in both knees. He says the arthroscopic procedures are scheduled for Tuesday. Bynum was acquired by Philly in a four-team trade in August that sent Dwight Howard to Los Angeles. The Sixers welcomed Bynum with a billboard and expected him to become a franchise player, but they have gotten nothing but aggravation thus far. Bynum made nearly $17 million this season without playing a game, though the team did have some of his salary paid by insurance. Bynum, 25, has had multiple knee problems throughout his career. He will be an unrestricted free agent after the season. At this point it’s fair to wonder what kind of contract offers Bynum will receive. It’s also fair to wonder if he’ll ever be able to make it through a season; he’s only played more than 65 games in a regular season once in eight seasons. I know I wouldn’t waste my time signing such an unreliable player.
