Julius Erving Wants the Sixers to Let Andrew Bynum Go

by April 15, 2013

Things have not gone well in Philadelphia this season, but Sixers fans were reminded of better times as Julius Erving and the rest of the 1982-83 championship team were honored at halftime of Sunday’s 91-77 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Dr. J, who works as a strategic adviser for the Sixers, seems to think the current squad should move on without soon-to-be free agent center Andrew Bynum. Per the Philly Inquirer: “On Bynum: ‘Coming here over the course of the year multiple times but not being in the room I don’t know what the total conversation was,’ Erving said. ‘I know what the net result it. The net result is Robert Parrish’s old number – zero, zero. So we have not benefitted one degree and I guess he has. 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.'”
