According to Andrew Bynum’s agent David Lee, the big fella is seriously contemplating sitting out the upcoming season in an effort to salvage his damaged knees. Lee is banking on Phil Jackson, the New York Knicks and others showing a renewed interest in his client for the 2014-’15 campaign. Per the NY Post:
Regenokine is a non-surgical program that promotes new cartilage growth through a series of injections. The FDA still hasn’t approved it in the United States. Bynum is considering doing the program with well-known doctor German doctor Peter Wehling, who worked with Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez. It is similar but not identical to the PRP procedure.
“If he’s healthy, Phil will be interested,’’ Lee said. “Phil knew how to tap into Andrew. They got along famously.’’
“He would be looking at in a longer-term situation,’’ Lee said. “He’s still a baby. If he went to college, he’d be coming off his rookie contract at age 26.’’
