08:07 AM ET 04.01 | Will Andrew Bynum ever put on a 76ers uniform? While it would be wonderful if Bynum -- an unrestricted free agent -- gave the Sixers special consideration in light of all that they lost in trading for him and the agonizing wait for him to return, a team source with knowledge of the situation said last week that he does not believe that will be the case. The Sixers ultimately may have nothing to show for this deal -- no Bynum, no Nik Vucevic, who looks as if he could be a budding star with the Magic, no Maurice Harkless, blossoming in his own way in Orlando, and one less first-round draft pick. All once sparkling assets, they now are reminders of a potentially franchise-crippling mistake by the front office.

Pretty certain no special consideration will be extended to him by the Sixers either...


Addition by subtraction.

Today's thread: No special consideration for Sixers from Bynum...

Yesterday's thread: Andrew Bynum not expected to give 76ers special consideration...


I wonder if he'll give them 'Special Consideration' by tomorrow's editorial deadline...

I wonder what team is dumb enough to give him consideration. He is basically done next year because he has to rehab for 2 more years. 1 year for each knee...

The rehab for his brains and heart may be the longest one to consider.

Serves you right Philly. Think it through a little more carefully next time.

I don't understand this comment.. He played most of last year in a shortened season and put up his best numbers. They gambled on his health and it didn't pay off. The only thing I am dissappointed is we didn't get to trade Iggy for some draft picks because he wasn't getting a max deal.

I truly think its fascinating how some GM's think and operate.Even though I personally think you'd have to be a moron to give him a multi year deal, I really could see him getting anywhere from a couple mil to a monster one

I've often wondered what the qualifications are for the job? Have a pulse? The foolishness of NBA GMs never ceases to amaze me....
