There is a reason why that Andrew Bynum picture is of him in a suit and not a 76ers uniform.
That's because Bynum has yet to play a game this season for the Sixers due to a knee injury and the complications he has suffered because of it.
With setback after setback, the chance that Bynum will end up playing for Philadelphia at all this season continues to decrease.
If that is the case, it could mean that the 76ers traded away several key pieces for nothing.
Bynum is an unrestricted free agent this offseason and will be on the open market unless the 76ers sign him to an extension before free agency hits.
Several teams may be wary of signing Bynum due to his injuries, but Dallas simply has to get in on the action of trying to lure Bynum to Texas this offseason.
While there certainly are questions about Bynum's toughness and worries about his knee, the Mavericks are in no position to talk themselves out of making a big move.
They do not have the pieces to be a contender without one more star player on the roster, and they aren't young enough or bad enough to try to hit the lottery in the draft.
Dwight Howard has been getting much of the attention when it relates to the Mavericks, but the fact is Bynum is just as realistic of an option and could potentially end up being a better fit.
Bynum when healthy is without a doubt one of the best big men in the NBA today. Last season when he was on the Lakers, Bynum put up monster numbers, getting 18.7 PPG to go along with 11.8 RPG.
In fact, Bynum has posted a PER of at least 20.0 the past five seasons; the only other big man to do that was Tim Duncan.
If Bynum plays this year, Dallas would certainly be wise to see how his knee holds up. However, regardless of that, if the Mavericks feel as though they are in a good position financially to go after Bynum, it would be foolish of them not to.
