Newest Sixer Bynum Receives Rock-Star Welcome

Andrew Bynum heard the roar from hundreds of Philadelphia 76ers fans chanting his name the moment he stepped into the National Constitution Center.

No wonder he wants to stick around.

Bynum says about Philadelphia, he’s “leaning toward making this my home.” That brought even louder cheers from an event that was more pep rally than press conference.

Wearing a Sixers T-shirt, Bynum made his first appearance Wednesday since he was acquired last week from the Los Angeles Lakers as part of a four-team deal. Former Philadelphia All-Star Andre Iguodala landed in Denver and Orlando shipped Dwight Howard to the Lakers.

Bynum’s contract is up after this season. But the Sixers can offer him a max deal worth over $100 million over five seasons.
