Definitely at the end of the season. I want him to show to us that he is 100% healthy and that he can finish an entire season strong. Once he does that, give the man his money.

The good thing here, is that he'll be an RFA, so anything anyone offers him, that he accepts, we can simply match and he's our player.

I just hope their isn't a team out their that would offer him Kobe Bryant money. :lol:

Keep in mind, that under the CBA, there is a limit, or a maximum, to what teams can offer a player based on their years in the NBA. The max that Bynum can earn is about 80 million over 5 years.

Most definitely. Warriors just paid Biedrins $63 million for 6 six years.

Milwaukee overpaid for Simmons, Knicks overpaid for, errr... everybody. Teams are out their that are desperate to resurrect their team again, and to them Bynum is a Godsend.

Mando, first of all

what are you doing up this early? lol

For the Ws this has been going on for the past decade or so

they've overpaid good players who just aren't big tremendous impact players, so thats why im not too shocked with the Biedrins signing.

Easily.

If Bynum puts up a solid 16PPG, 12RPG next season, teams would kill for his signing. Remember, a solid big man is worth alot in the NBA. A future All-Star in the NBA (Bynum), is priceless.

Check Bogut's recent contract.

Yes, people really would offer Bynum an all-out max contract if the Lakers let it come to that. Thankfully, because we own his Bird Rights, under the current CBA, we can offer more money, higher raises, and 1 extra year on his deal. So, if it comes down to money, we still win -- if we want to win.
