08:56 AM ET 02.23 | No matter what happens this season with the 76ers, Andrew Bynum will always be in the middle of things. That even goes for the seemingly minor trade-deadline deal the Sixers made with the Golden State Warriors on Thursday afternoon to acquire 6-foot-3 guard Charles Jenkins. If Bynum had been well enough to play in games through the first 52 of the season, maybe then the Sixers would have pulled the trigger on a larger deal this season. Or then again, maybe not. The Sixers have a decision to make on Bynum this summer, and Bynum has a decision to make on the Sixers. It simply isn't a matter of the Sixers making the best offer to the game-changing center. "We have Plan A and I think everyone knows what A stands for. And we have Plan B and we don't know," general manager Tony DiLeo said on Friday morning at the Sixers' workout site at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Bynum is going to want the max, so I think Sixers need to activate Plan B.

Yep. No sense in throwing good money after bad.

The Sixers really messed up when they signed Bynum. They should have just hung on to Vucevic and used the extra money to fill out their team. This reminds me of when Orlando gave Grant Hill a max deal. That fat salary for a guy that couldn't play pretty much killed anything they could do to make the team better. It was T-Mac and a lot of scrubs.

Except grant hill wasn't hurt then and had no hx of getting hurt. They also almost got Duncan that year. Bad comparison

Wrong.Grant Hill was on crutches when Orlando was luring him away from Detroit.

My mistake then,I don't remember him being hurt then. But in fairness his problem was his injury got infected and led to his problems, tough to fault Orlando for that

Your the one who compared Orlando giving hill a max contract was similiar to Philly giving Bynum one. I'm simply saying it wasn't quite same situation. No need to be condescending.

I never faulted Orlando. You inserted that.Maybe stop nit picking my comments and it won't feel condescending. It's like the third T&R now where you've done that. Just read what I type.

Always someone who has to start the childish crap on here.
