NBA: Andrew Bynum, Greg Oden To Work Out For Clippers
Former Laker Andrew Bynum hasn’t had any success since being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers back in the summer of 2012. Bynum was coming off a career year in his final season with the Los Angeles Lakers, but struggled to stay healthy during his short stints with the 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers.
Now that Bynum is a free agent, the veteran center is looking for another opportunity in the NBA without many teams showing interest in the injury prone center.
Fortunately for Bynum, and fellow injury prone big man Greg Oden, the Los Angeles Clippers will work out both centers along with a few other veterans, according to Jorge Sedano of ESPN:
Clippers to work out back up Centers this week. Names that will come thru: Andray Blatche, Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum & Emeka Okafor
With Bynum playing a total of 26 games over the last two seasons and causing locker room problems anywhere he seems to go, the two-time NBA champion will take any opportunity at this point. Bynum would be welcome addition to the Clippers’ frontcourt if able to stay healthy, but it seems unlikely that he’ll be able to do so moving forward.
Oden and Okafor are also two veterans that have struggled with injury problems during their careers. Blatche, on the other hand, has been able to stay healthy and put up decent numbers in a backup capacity. The nine-year veteran could have the advantage over Bynum and the rest of the centers invited to work out for the team simply due to his ability to stay healthy while producing off the bench.
