Dr. J’s cure: Let Bynum go for dough If Julius Erving has his way, the Philadelphia 76ers won’t re-sign All-Star center Andrew Bynum this summer. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer and 76ers strategic adviser told Tom Moore of phillyburbs. com that he “didn’t know what the total conversation was” among the team’s front office when it came to acquiring Bynum last off-season from the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-team trade that also involved the Denver Nuggets and Orlando Magic. But Erving said that he wasn’t supportive of the move to bring Bynum to Philadelphia. Bynum has not played this season after suffering a bone bruise in his right knee in October as well as injuring his left knee. He had arthroscopic surgery on both knees in February, which ended his season.
