When the Philadelphia 76ers traded Andre Iguodala to acquire Andrew Bynum, they knew what they were getting themselves into. Bynum is a massively talented player with all of the physical tools to be one of the best players in the league.

They also knew that he has serious injury and maturity issues, which have been huge issues this season.

Bynum’s knees have prevented him from playing all year, and people are beginning to wonder if he will be back on the court any time soon. He is a free agent after this season, and the 76ers took a risk acquiring him without assurance that he would re-sign with the team.

It looks like the 76ers might be starting to get a little nervous. Via Yahoo:

One NBA general manager said the Sixers have been making trade inquiries about adding a starting caliber center.

“They got to be a little panicked now,” one GM said. “They could get a really interesting deal for him. I could see them doing that.”

Could you imagine the 76ers dealing Andrew Bynum before he even plays a game for them?

It sounds ridiculous, but there are a lot of things going on here that could make it a possibility. He could leave in free agency, and the team might be looking to get a return on him. Or maybe they’re reevaluating their decision to acquire him in the first place.
