I would be on the phone with him right now and tell him he has a chance to resurrect his career with us and King James! If we can get Bynum to be just 50% of what he was in LA, we would be unstoppable next year and the Bulls and Pacers will be no threat! I called it out on the Birdman and for pennies look at what great value he has brought us, now a Bynum in the inside with the King? For now let's beat the SPURS! GO HEAT!!!!!!!!!

I don't see Bynum taking a miniMLE when there are teams with cap space who will offer him max or near max once Howard is off the board. Do you really see a guy with balky knees and a limited timeline who's already won two rings take a $3.5m contract vs $60-80m contract during what will likely be his last big prime payday before his knees go on him? GTFOH. Lock this thread. Plus he's still technically under contract... so getting "on the phone with him right now" would be tampering.

I'm not sure I trust Bynum.....too much of a wildcard. He has a lot of growing up to do.
Let's go HEAT......stay focused, driven, committed, and last but not least play Miami Heat basketball!!!!!!!

Bynum should offer to play for the Sixers for free next year.  $15M down the drain!  No way would I ever want him on the Heat... or the Sixers for that matter.


Don't call me a Miami Heat bandwagon jumper! I'm just a long-time LeBron supporter who hates the haters! Go HEAT!!!

Then we phone after the season is over, we don't need Lebron to keep doing all the work and not get any help

You know...it's crazy, but why not?

 

People thought I was crazy when I said Miami should get LeBron James, that happened.

 

Dr. J called Bynum damaged goods. Perhaps he wants a year to show the world (NBA) that he still has it.

 

It's a crazy idea, but star players have taken less money to prove points before. Does Bynum have that same humility inside himself, I doubt it, but it's not impossible.

This is a semi reasonable argument until you consider how much money is on the table during a free agency that teams have cleared the slate in hopes of landing CP3 or Dwight... Bynum is a more realistic target for some of these franchises. Although his injury history is concern, his skillset is not. I don't know if he has that much to prove to turn down $80m and instead take only $3.5m. Especially with an aggressive agent dictating terms of his next contract. I don't know one agent who would settle for 15% of 3.5 vs 80... That is a HUGE gap. Especially with injuries potentially limiting the years of his prime. His window to gain max contract doesn't increase by devaluing his worth by that much. Only way I could see it a remote possibility is if every other team were capped out and the Sixers refused to bring him back for anything more than vet min. Which is mathematically not gonna happen.

The question is will Bynum accept 3mill ?? Plus he's alrdy a 2x champion.

Oh I know it's not practical, and even more unlikely to happen...but we could essentially clear some cap space.

 

Obviously it's not up to us, it's Bynum's decision. If he is willing to take a substantial pay cut to prove to the NBA that he is still one of the best centers in the league, why not go to a team with championship caliber players and a potential to show the world that you are worth every penny of a big time contract.

 

lol

 

It's so crazy it might work. I mean, could people hate us any more? If Bynum joins, I say hell yes!

^^^ We can't clear cap space unless Riley either trades away our entire bench for nothing in return or amnesties one of the big three... even then it won't be enough to make any serious offer... At best a full MLE level contract. C'mon Scar you know better than that.
