With a lot of room under the salary cap in the coming years, Philadelphia definitely has the flexibility to make a deal and still offer Bynum a nice contract extension. The other option is to deal him to a team in the Western Conference hoping to use him in the second half or bring him back next year. Philadelphia definitely has to seriously consider doing something soon, though, because the team is starting to fade with the lack of depth. Even if it turns out to be a minor deal, the 76ers have got to address their bench problems.
The 76ers are willing to discuss trading for a bench scorer, according to coach Doug Collins. "Would I? Yeah,” Collins said when asked if he would be open to dealing for a reserve scorer. “I would. Can I? I don’t know.”
