The Andrew Bynum experiment has failed miserable in Philadelphia so far, and as the center becomes a free agent this summer, the Philadelphia 76ers must figure out what to do in regards to re-signing the piece they traded so much to attain. Legendary Sixer, Julius Erving, weighs in. “But I think if he’s not here you are going to free up a lot of money and money talks in the NBA,”Erving said.“Washington and Lincoln can’t play the corners for you but they can get you somebody that can play the corners. We need somebody to play the corner and the middle for us. It’s going to be costly but the Bynum situation is going to be one of total uncertainty for another year.” Erving’s vote looks to be casted, and like many fans in Philadelphia, he looks forward to a Bynum-less future in the city of brotherly love. Jrue Holiday and company offer the 76ers an opportunity to build with youth, although keeping names like Nikola Vucevic and Moe Harlkess would have been ideal for this type of situation. But, what’s done is done. Dr. J had this to say about a potential rebuild in Philly: “It’s probably not going to look like Miami or OKC. They have to find a way to do it with who they have presently and who they will be able to get in the future, so it’s not going to look Miami and the Lakers. It’s probably a franchise that’s going to look to be who they are when they get to that point.” It’s hard to tell what the 76ers will try and do with Andrew this summer, and it’s even harder to predict what Bynum himself to will look to do. Has the relationship in Philadelphia, a city where you’re held accountable in sports, already fractured (like Bynum’s knees), or can a potential deal be worked out with the man they traded Andre Iguodala and aforementioned players for? The fact of the matter is, Bynum’s services won’t be cheap, and there’s always somebody around the association with money burning a hole in there pockets. Some other team will throw cash at Bynum, and the ball will be in Philly’s court if Bynum intends to stay put.
