Sixers president Rod Thorn addressed the murky future of center Andrew Bynum, whose “bizarre” injuries put an end to his season prior to it ever really starting.


Thorn says the team has yet to make a decision regarding Bynum’s impending free agency.


Per the Delaware County Daily Times‘ Q&A:


“With two home games left, do you feel the Sixers should have achieved more this year? ‘With the (Andrew) Bynum situation, we gave up some terrific assets in order to get Andrew. And Andrew hasn’t been able to play. So I think we played about as well as we could play otherwise. I think we have done some good things. We had a bad stretch in the year. Obviously, we are finishing up here on a pretty high note. But we rolled the dice to so speak with Bynum. I think if we had Bynum, we’d be a really good team. And with him not being able to play, it’s been a tough thing for us.’


Do you have a timetable on deciding whether to bring Bynum back? ‘I don’t. He doesn’t become a free agent until the end of June, the first of July.’


Will that be your decision to make the offer? ‘That decision? He is a free agent, he can go anywhere he wants to. It’s not just what we want to do, it’s what he wants to do, too.’


Will the Sixers make an offer? ‘We’ll have to see what transpires.’


Will that be your decision or ownership’s? ‘Ownership obviously will have a part in it. The basketball people will make recommendations and ownership will … and doctors will play a big part in that.’


So the Sixers will need some medical reports before deciding? ‘Oh, for sure. Oh, yeah. You try to do your due diligence.

If I were Philly I would tip my hat to the Lakers for making a smart deal and then run away from Bynum as fast as I could.

I hope the Sixers throw him a nice contract so an elite team doesn't go into tax to get him.

You never know...

Anything but a one year deal is as stupid as it gets, let him prove he can stay a season before throwing your money away
