NBA free agent rumors: Will Bynum's agent talking to Pistons

New, comments

Will Bynum has also been linked to the Chicago Bulls, because you know, he's from Chicago.

Shortly after the Pistons hired Maurice Cheeks, a source close to the New York Post said it was more likely the Pistons would re-sign veteran point guard Will Bynum because both he and Cheeks are from Chicago. Then the Pistons went and drafted a prototypical backup point guard, Peyton Siva, and it seemed like Bynum might be a goner. He was recently linked to the Bulls, because Chicago, and I was beginning to envision a roster without Bynum.

But Mark Bartelstein, Will Bynum's agent, is still exploring Bynum's future with the Pistons:

As long as Bynum remains unsigned and the Pistons are trying to re-sign Calderon, I don't doubt that Bartelstein will also try to sell his less desirable client onto the team. Maybe he will sell the two as a package deal. After all, I'd be okay with re-signing Bynum if it meant re-signing Calderon. Maybe Bynum will be the fall-back option after other guards make their decisions. Or maybe the Pistons have zero intention of re-signing Bynum, but they're humoring Bartelstein in the interest of Calderon. I don't know. Bartelstein also represents Mikki Moore and Kwame Browns - so what?

We'll keep you posted, but for those of you who haven't let it be known yet, would you be okay with the Pistons re-signing Bynum? What kind of deal, if any, would make you happy?
