Andrew Bynum Will Be Ready for Training Camp Says Agent


According to free agent center Andrew Bynum’s agent, the big fella is set to resume basketball-related activities following rehab from season-ending knee surgery. Bynum’s rep says he’ll be ready to go once training camp rolls around. Per the AP: “Bynum’s agent, David Lee, said Monday night there’s ‘not a concern in the world’ that Bynum will be ready for training camp. He also said he had no conversations with the Sixers and does not expect any kind of deal with the team before the 7-foot center becomes a free agent on July 1. Lee says Bynum will get a jump on his regular offseason workouts by starting next week in Atlanta instead of his usual time in August. But where? Likely not with the team he failed to play a single game for because of bone bruises in his knees. Bynum was acquired last summer in a four-team trade that saw the Sixers deal Andre Iguodala to Denver and Nikola Vucevic to Orlando. ‘Philly will do what Philly does. I can’t control it,’ Lee said. ‘Next week, I have a feeling I’ll be meeting with a couple of teams.’ Bynum did not receive an enthusiastic endorsement from new general manager and president Sam Hinkie at his introductory press conference in May. ‘I think of Andrew like the thousands of other young men walking around the world that are unrestricted free agents that have potential to play NBA basketball,’ Hinkie said. ‘He is one of those. I’m duty bound to consider them and look at them. All of them.’ Lee laughed off the comment. ‘I read that Sam considers Andrew one of 3,000 players trying to make it into the NBA,’ Lee said. ‘I assume Sam’s going to lunch with 3,000 people.’”

    This guy is a wash, not only is he injury prone but whole his demeanor shows he could care less about coming back and making a meaningful career.

  • playa

    He said he will be ready for training camp,,,,the question is for which season?Maybe there’s another full year of vacation in his plans,you never know.

  • robb

    It will all depend on how much bowling he will play before training camp

  • Mike Gilbert

    i’m actually really excited to see where he guys, and what kind of contract teams think he is worth. I could see 2 years $20 million

  • Jay Brodes

    i will believe it when i see it. didn’t he say this last year? good luck with that one!

  • spit hot fiyah

    i can’t think of another situation like this. a guy who sat out an entire year with an injury, and if healthy is a lock for being a top 3 center and people would be lining up to give him the max if they knew he was 100%. so many question marks about his health and his overall dedication to basketball.

    I’ve been saying it for a while that he has degenerative knees. His best days were with the Lakers and he won’t get any better. Prove me wrong Andrew.

    Only his hairstylist knows for sure.

  • roscoe

    is drew considering giving PHI a discount?

    i mean he cleaned up last year and didn’t do much, right?

    i recommend drew playing for a minimum 1-year deal to make things right.
