Will Bynum: ‘My future’s here in Detroit’

David Mayo of MLive:

"Deadline for what?" Bynum said when asked about the trade deadline. "My future’s here, man. My future’s here in Detroit. You ain’t been watching? I ain’t been thinking about it. Nothing to think about. Nothing to think about."

Never change, Will Bynum. Never change.

Bynum is such a singularly focused guy – for better or worse – I really think by “future” he means somewhere between the next game and the rest of the season. So, to those of you worried that the cap space created this summer by Bynum’s expiring contract will go toward… re-signing Bynum, I see this as no reason to fret.

    Um…how are you calculating the probability of players signing with the Pistons or not signing with them?

      likelihoods are based on
      1. chance they will leave their current franchise
      2. their expressed interest in playing for a team
      3. Joe D’s record of the type of players he pursues
      4. the Pistons current needs
      5. size of the contract the player would be looking for
      6. the Pistons projected cap space in 2013
      7. the type of free agent the player is
      8. The player’s happiness with current and/or past situations
      9. the spending patterns of their current franchise
      10. the goals of the player in free agency (ie getting paid vs. competing in the playoffs)
      And all of these factors divided by the possible teams that could afford to sign them next summer.

    Bynum has a place here while Andre is part of our second unit. He’s the perfect PG to pair Andre with. Next year, or if Andre moves into the starting lineup sooner, Bynum’s place is less secure.
    It doesn’t make much sense to hang on to Stuckey and Bynum going forward. I’d prefer Bynum as he’ll be cheaper, is more dynamic, and can lead the second unit efficiently while being ball-dominant. Bynum’s older, but we don’t really have to worry about him being in shape, and he’s still productive.
    I know Stuckey has started at point and embraced coming off the bench, but he doesn’t really fit our team well. He’s really been relegated to the Isolayshaun role when he’s in the game (someone gives Stuckey the ball; he posts up while everyone else stands by watching). Stuckey’s lack of perimeter shooting, and the lack of ball movement when his number is called makes him wholly expendable in my mind.

    Stuckey OR Bynum, for the love of Pete, not both next year.

    I’d like to see Wil come back to Detroit after he retires somewhere else. He’s done a.great job this year….but he has value for a trade now. Stuckey and the three point machine he has become needs to go home to Oregon. I’d take a few Columbia river salmon just to part with him and his 38% shooting percentage and general toxicity to the TEAM! Come to think of it I’ll throw the salmon in just to get rid of a guy who’s of NO value to us.
