09:05 AM ET 08.11 | In Philly things will run through him. He'll finally have the opportunity to fully show what he can do and because of that he's just as excited to be a 76er as they are to have him. "He's totally excited about being back near home," (Andrew) Bynum's agent David Lee said to HOOPSWORLD. "He's excited about the opportunity there and the team there." Lee also said that Bynum was not surprised by the trade. After all, he's been involved in trade rumors since he first came into the league as a 17-year-old. Whether it was Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett or Carmelo Anthony who he was associated with, Bynum was always involved in some sort of speculation.

Hawes, Kwame Brown, Lavoy Allen or Thad Young. The Sixers actually have too many PF's. None of them are great, but they'll be serviceable.

Bad kness!....76ers better have a backup to play at least 15 + minutes!

August 11, 2012  03:54 PM ET

76ers get a good one as long as they keep him interested and he doesn't disappear from the offense...

he's gonna be triple happy to get even closer to home when he bolts after the season and goes to Brooklyn. Look for a trade in Feb when Lopez can be traded again............

Young has played the four and I think he will man the position full time. I still think Turner will eventually move to the 1 spot the sixers are still split on holiday as the long term solution. Hell the head coach keeps saying turner is a natural 1.............

Lets see how Bynum does when the pressure is on him every night to produce and carry a team. Philly fans are not known to be the most forgiving

Thanks for your contributions (2-rings) in LA. Now go dominate the East and be a perennial All-star. I think another ring or two is also in yours and Philly's future...
