Will Bynum has been drawing interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Bynum's play with the Guandong Southern Tigers has drawn the attention of several NBA teams, but the Cavaliers are adamant on adding a backup point guard and it appears that he is near the top of their list. Regardless, if Bynum did end up in Cleveland he would likely have a very limited role behind Kyrie Irving so there is no need to consider an add in almost any league. Jan 24 - 9:13 AM

Will Bynum has been drawing interest from NBA teams, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The Guandong Southern Tigers of China have won 22 consecutive games since Bynum debuted with the team and the NBA has taken notice. The 32-year-old will likely hook on with an NBA team after his season ends in China, but that may not be until late-February after the Chinese playoffs end. Bynum would help solidify someone's bench depth, but he won't have any fantasy value if he does indeed return to the NBA.

Will Bynum is reportedly finalizing a deal to sign with the Guangdong Southern Tigers of China.

Bynum is a backup point guard at best in the NBA, but he could have a fun time playing in China. He may return stateside after his season ends overseas, but he's not going to have much, if any, fantasy value.

Celtics waive Will Bynum.

Bynum was never really in the Celtics' future plans, and with the team unable to find a trade for him, they simply waived him. Bynum is a capable backup point guard, and he should be able to find another NBA team in need of his services. However, the word "backup" tells you about all you need to know with regards to Bynum's fantasy potential, as he's destined for limited minutes, and negligible statistics where ever he lands.

Will Bynum's agent is working with the Celtics to find a suitable trade, failing which Bynum is expected to be waived.

The 31-year-old Bynum has recovered from a strained hamstring but hasn't even joined the Celtics for training camp. "It’s a tough time of year to make a trade," a league source told the Boston Herald. "Teams are still trying to get used to their rosters, see what they have. Most likely [the Celtics] will have to waive him." No matter where he lands, Bynum will fill a fantasy-irrelevant bench role.

If the Celtics cannot trade Will Bynum, it is very likely that they will waive him, according to sources.

The Celtics are looking for a trade to either improve their team, or create more roster flexibility for the future, but Bynum doesn't look to be a part of their future plans. It's unlikely that Bynum finds himself in a situation this season where he will have any fantasy value, and he can be ignored in all leagues come draft day.

Will Bynum (hamstring) is expected to miss the last two preseason games for the Boston Celtics.

There is still a very good chance that he gets waived by the Celtics if they can't strike another deal to move him. At this point, Bynum has almost no fantasy value until his situation changes.

The Celtics have acquired Will Bynum (hamstring) in exchange for Joel Anthony in a trade on Friday.

He was going to compete with D.J. Augustin for the backup point guard, but with rookie Spencer Dinwiddie already getting some 5-on-5 reps in, the Pistons aren't going to need Bynum nearly as much. He's likely just going to provide depth for the Celtics as a backup. Of course, the Celtics may end up waiving him and save $900K to get under the tax line this season.

Will Bynum (hamstring) will not play in Sunday's preseason game vs. the Wizards.

Will Bynum is targeting a return for Friday's game vs. Orlando. Bynum will enter the 2014-15 season as the team's third-string point guard behind Brandon Jennings and D.J. Augustin, and he's not someone that should be targeted in most leagues.

Will Bynum (hamstring) went through Friday's practice.

Bynum will be the team's third-string point guard behind Brandon Jennings and D.J. Augustin, and he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues.

Will Bynum (hamstring) will not play in Tuesday's exhibition vs. Chicago.

His absence sounds precautionary, but he's been out for a week and is losing opportunities to establish himself in Detroit's competitive backcourt rotation. Until Bynum is healthy, the Pistons will rely on starter Brandon Jennings and backup D.J. Augustin to pace the offense.
Tue, Oct 7, 2014 12:43:00 PM

Will Bynum will be limited for a couple days in training camp with a hamstring injury.

It doesn't sound serious and he should be fully healthy by the start of the preseason, assuming he doesn't have a setback.

Will Bynum has made a big chance to his diet in an effort to boost his overall energy.

Bynum has abandoned sugar, flour, artificial colorings, and milk as he thinks they dull concentration and sap energy. His new diet now mostly consists of baked chicken, fish, fresh fruits, and vegetables. "Now I’m completely wired all day," he said. "I was already like that, but now it’s kind of scary." Bynum will again come off the bench for the Pistons this season and doesn't warrant any fantasy attention outside of deep leagues.

Will Bynum (foot) will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

His foot injury will have kept him out for the final seven games of the season. Bynum has been effective off the bench and the Pistons play better team ball when he's out there.

Will Bynum (foot) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

He hasn't been close to returning to the lineup due to his foot injury. Rodney Stuckey has seen extra chances in the starting lineup and is a decent option in points-heavy formats.
