Andrew Bynum

  1. Report: Cavaliers, Mavericks leading contenders for Andrew Bynum

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    The question was never “would teams be interested in Andrew Bynum?” Two years ago when healthy he was in the “best center in the game” conversation. Guys like him do not come around often. The question was always “what kind of contract would he get?” We may find out soon, with the interest in him…

  2. Report: Atlanta Hawks target Monta Ellis

    Jul 7, 2013, 3:06 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    The Atlanta Hawks have made a couple free agent splashes this summer already, landing former Jazz forward Paul Millsap and sharpshooter Kyle Korver. Those two could pair well with Al Horford in the paint. Does Monta Ellis? We may find out as the Hawks are targeting Ellis, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. With the future…

  3. Report: Dallas Mavericks interested in Andrew Bynum

    Jul 6, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Mark Cuban didn’t succeed in his Dwight Howard gambit, so now me may be about to roll the dice on another elite center… well, sometimes elite center sometimes flamenco dancer. Mavericks fans, how would you like to have Andrew Bynum on your team? Actually, it’s not that bad a gamble (we’ll get to that) and…

  4. Report Omer Asik ready to force a trade because of Dwight Howard

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Omer Asik

    Not everyone with the Rockets is pleased Dwight Howard has agreed to sign with Houston. Brian Windhorst of ESPN: https://twitter.com/WindhorstESPN/status/353283007282552833 How does Los Angeles sound, Omer? Because the Rockets don’t have the cap space to sign Howard, they must make other moves before officially signing him (unless he’s willing to take less money). That could…

  5. Kings’ brass visit Alabama with DeMarcus Cousins’ big payday looming

    Jul 5, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    In the last two years, a dozen players have posted 17 points and nine rebounds in a season. Here’s the list with the terms of each player’s most recent contract or extension in parentheses: Blake Griffin (five years, $95 million) Dwight Howard (five years, $83,235,900) David Lee (six years, $79,537,680) LaMarcus Aldridge (five years, $65…

  6. Report: Pistons want to trade for Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay

    Jul 2, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    The Pistons have two of the NBA’s most promising big men, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and they’ve cleared more than $20 million in cap space this summer. They’re definitely in position to make a jump to the playoffs, which is what general manager Joe Dumars probably needs in the final season of his contract,…

  7. Andrew Bynum won’t work out for teams as a free agent

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Andrew Bynum didn’t play a single game for the Sixers last year, due to knee injuries that kept him from basketball for the entire season. Bynum is now an unrestricted free agent, but the likelihood of Philadelphia coming through with the dollars it will take to sign him is minimal, at best. The team’s new…

  8. One dozen NBA free agents to watch (not named Howard or Paul)

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Chris Paul is going to stay a Clipper. Dwight Howard is going to do whatever it is Dwight Howard is going to do. But those two are not the only guys who became free agents at the stroke of midnight and we ventured into Monday. Here are a dozen other newly minted free agents worth…

  9. Injury, risk reasons Nerlens Noel fell down draft board

    Jun 29, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    When Nerlens Noel first went down with an ACL injury, the reaction of most scouts and league executives was he wouldn’t fall or if he did he wouldn’t fall that far in the draft. He was still a top three pick. But things started to feel different the last couple weeks. I can’t remember a…

  10. Three winners, three losers from NBA Draft. You bet Anthony Bennett is a winner.

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:04 AM EDT

    Anthony Bennett from UNLV reacts after being selected by the Clevland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    I will admit this up front: declaring a winner in the NBA draft the night of the draft is premature. We can accurately say tonight that Indiana was a winner in the 2010 draft (Paul George at No. 10, Lance Stephenson at No. 40), but we don’t know how this draft will ultimately play out.…

  11. Trade: New Orleans sends Nerlens Noel and a 2014 pick to Sixers for Jrue Holiday

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:56 PM EDT

    Noel from the University of Kentucky shakes hands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Pelicans as the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    We have our first trade of the 2013 draft, and it involves some fairly big names. The New Orleans Pelicans selected Nerlens Noel with the sixth overall pick, but he won’t be playing alongside Anthony Davis on the front line next season. They picked him for the Philadelphia 76ers, who will send All-Star point guard…

  12. Cody Zeller says he has no idea where he’s getting drafted either

    Jun 26, 2013, 12:00 PM EDT

    VCU v Wichita St.

    This is about as fluid an NBA Draft as we have seen. There are a lot of role player potential picks in this draft but no likely breakout stars, which means teams aren’t “in love” with guys so much and are willing to move out or down looking for any kind of value. Which means…

  13. Agent says there’s ‘not a concern in the world’ that Andrew Bynum will be ready for training camp

    Jun 25, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Andrew Bynum didn’t play a single game for the Sixers last season, after coming over in a trade that sent Andre Iguodala to the Denver Nuggets. Knee injuries prevented Bynum from ever taking the court in a Philadelphia uniform, and his time with the franchise became more contentious as the season went on. He finally…

  14. Grizzlies, 76ers looking to buy first-round draft picks

    Jun 20, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kwame Brown

    The Grizzlies traded their first-round pick to Cleveland to get under the luxury tax and save about $4 million. Now they can use some of that money to get a first-round pick back. Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld: Memphis is looking to buy a first-round pick, so expect the Grizzlies to get in the mix and…

  15. Mark Cuban plans to lure top free agents by giving them roster input

    Jun 17, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks enter the off-season as one of the major players in free agency. Not only do  they have money to spend, but they also have a history of championship level contention, a still very good Dirk Nowitzki, and Mark Cuban to close the deal when it’s time to make the pitch on why the…

  16. Report: Nuggets talking with former 76ers GM Tony DiLeo

    Jun 14, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Tony DiLeo

    The 76ers and dumped general manager Tony DiLeo for Sam Hinkie, but DiLeo could land on his feet. Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest: The Denver Nuggets have recently had serious discussions with former general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers Tony DiLeo regarding their GM vacancy, a source close to the situation conveyed to CSNNW.com. According…

    Image (1) sixers-logo-thumb-250x250-11402-thumb-250x250-11403.jpg for post 3366

    If you’ve been reading ProFootballTalk this offseason, they have been putting together the Mount Rushmore for each franchise — the four faces that shaped that team more than any others through history. What faces would make that list if you did it for the Philadelphia 76ers? Dei Lynam and Rhea Hughes of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia…

  18. Karl Malone to help coach Utah Jazz big men

    May 29, 2013, 7:42 PM EDT

    Karl Malone

    The Utah Jazz have a couple really good young frontline players — Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. Two guys that could form a powerhouse frontline in a few years. So why not have them learn from the best Jazz big man ever? No, not Mark Eaton, the other one. Karl Malone. Malone is apparently taking…

  19. Dwyane Wade grants wish, shows up at girl’s senior prom

    May 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Instagram

    To quote the great Wayne Gretzky, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.” Nicole Muxo took a shot. The high school senior at Archbishop Coleman Carroll put a video on YouTube asking Dwyane Wade to be her date for her senior prom. Friday night, he showed up, reports NBCMiami.com. Muxo, who attends…

  20. New Sixers GM Hinkie says Bynum just another free agent

    May 14, 2013, 6:53 PM EDT

    Sam-Hinkie_headshot_rd

    Don’t throw good money after bad. It is good advice in Las Vegas — you’re not going to win that money back on one big roulette bet — and it’s good advice for NBA general managers. Who do their fair share of gambling. Like pushing all your chips in on Andrew Bynum last summer. New…

  21. Sixers hire Rockets assistant Hinkie as their new GM

    May 10, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Sam-Hinkie_headshot_rd

    There were going to be changes in Philly in the wake of the lost Andrew Bynum season (not sure what else to call that campaign, at least that’s printable). In the wake of coach Doug Collins leaving, now out goes GM Tony DiLeo and he will be replaced by a guy considered one of the…

  22. Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner: 76ers should hire Michael Curry

    May 9, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner

    Though Doug Collins’ departure from the 76ers was framed as his decision, it seemed Philadelphia wasn’t exactly heartbroken to see him go. But the three-year Collins era with the 76ers was a relative success. They made the postseason for consecutive years for the first time since 2008 and 2009 and a playoff series for the…

  23. Andrew Bynum is flamenco dancing in Spain during NBA playoffs (VIDEO)

    May 1, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    From the already massive “Andrew Bynum doesn’t care what you think” file… If you’re wondering how Andrew Bynum’s knees are doing about six weeks after the latest of his surgeries, they are apparently good enough to do some flamenco dancing in Spain, where he is on vacation. The video is above off the Spanish café’s…

  24. Report: Sixers reach out to Brian Shaw about coaching job

    Apr 28, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw is once again going to get a number of job interviews this off-season… well, once the Pacers start to have an off-season. And among the teams he will talk to is the Philadelphia 76ers, reports Dei Lynam CSNPhilly.com. The Sixers, according to a source, have contacted the Pacers’ associate head coach about their…

  25. During 2011 playoffs, Phil Jackson told Lakers he had prostate cancer

    Apr 28, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    The last time the Lakers were swept out of the playoffs (as could happen Sunday as the Lakers trail the Spurs 3-0) it was 2011, when the Lakers were the title defenders. The Dallas Mavericks made short work of Los Angeles in the second round (and went on to win a title). After that loss,…
