Byron Mullens did not exercise his player option with the 76ers and is now a free agent.
He turned down $1.1 million on the last year of his deal. Mullens had every chance to perform after the trade deadline with the depleted Philly roster, but he couldn't beat out Henry Sims and averaged just 6.8 points, 3.3 boards, 0.4 blocks and 1.1 triples in 13.7 minutes over 18 games. Teams won't be very interested in signing him. Jun 27 - 2:25 PM

Byron Mullens hit 6-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points and seven rebound in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.

He might be worth using in deeper leagues over the last two games, assuming he keeps getting 20 minutes a night in a couple meaningless games.
Apr 12 - 10:23 PM

Byron Mullens got back on the floor in Friday's game, scoring five points with four rebounds, one steal and one three in 18 minutes off the bench.

Mullens was a healthy DNP on Wednesday and it's possible the Sixers will give him a look-see, but owners can watch that action from the wire.
Apr 12 - 1:33 AM

Byron Mullens (sprained ankle) will return from his five-game absence vs. the Raptors on Wednesday.

Henry Sims has been playing well as the Sixers' starting center, with Jarvis Varnado backing him up, but Mullens should still carve out 10-15 minutes per game. The Sixers have five games left in their tanked season, which has seen 23 different players filter through their roster.
Apr 9 - 11:11 AM

Byron Mullens (ankle) is out again on Saturday.

He remains day-to-day and his absence simply shifts a few more minutes to starting C Henry Sims and backup Jarvis Varnado.
Apr 5 - 6:08 PM

Byron Mullens (ankle) will not play against the Celtics on Friday night.

He said on Wednesday that he was targeting tonight, but he's not going to be able to give it a go. Henry Sims has been effective while Jarvis Varnado has done a decent job of protecting the paint for the second unit.
Apr 4 - 6:29 PM

Byron Mullens (sprained left ankle) said that he could return for Friday's game in Boston.

Mullens is averaging 13 minutes per game since joining the Sixers, and he doesn't belong on fantasy radars outside of the deepest leagues.
Apr 3 - 10:12 AM

Byron Mullens (ankle) will not play against the Bobcats on Wednesday.

The Sixers have confidence in Henry Sims and Jarvis Varnado has been a nice fit in the second unit, so the Sixers won't miss Mullens much tonight. Sims is a must-own player while Varnado is a blocks specialist.
Apr 2 - 6:10 PM

Byron Mullens (ankle) will not play vs. Detroit on Saturday.

Philly could have used his 3-point shooting to clear extra space in the paint vs. the Pistons, but they'll have to make do with heavy minutes from starters Henry Sims and Thaddeus Young, as well as backups Jarvis Varnado and Brandon Davies.
Mar 29 - 6:28 PM

Byron Mullens suffered an ankle sprain in the first half of Thursday's game and is questionable to return.

He didn't seem to injury his ankle too badly and was subbed out during free throws. If he needs to miss time, Jarvis Varnado and Henry Sims figure to pick up some of the slack, which isn't much.
Mar 27 - 9:02 PM

Byron Mullens was busy in his 18 minutes of action against the Spurs on Monday with 15 points, eight boards, one steal and three 3-pointers.

He's served as the backup center and his playing time tonight was his highest since Mar. 14. Henry Sims seems to be locked in as the starter which means Mullens may have a tough time getting more than 20 minutes per night.
Mar 25 - 1:08 AM

Byron Mullens played through a migraine on Wednesday and hit 4-of-5 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, three rebounds, two steals and a block.

He played well tonight, but the fact he played just 15 minutes in each of his last three games means that he's not worth owning in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 19 - 10:15 PM

Byron Mullens hit three 3-pointers to finish with 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting, five rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Mullens theoretically had a shot at being a poor man's Spencer Hawes but the Sixers are so bad (and so is he) that his production is a crap shoot from night to night. If he can string another good game together in the next one perhaps we'll upgrade his outlook, but for now he's a desperation add in deep leagues at best.
Mar 15 - 12:25 AM

Byron Mullens scored 15 points vs. his former team on Tuesday with six boards, two assists and three 3-pointers in 20 minutes.

While this entire game was basically garbage time, Mullens did only score two points in the fourth quarter. He does seem like a scheme fit on offense in place of Spencer Hawes, but Mullens' post defense is going to drive coach Brett Brown mad. That said, he is worth a look in deeper leagues since he does take 3-pointers.
Mar 5 - 12:32 AM

Byron Mullens played 17 minutes off the bench on Wednesday and hit 3-of-11 shots for seven points, three rebounds, one assist, zero blocks and zero 3-pointers.

This isn't over, as the Sixers are still playing musical big men and Mullens may get an opportunity to start at some point in the next week or so. But as of right now, none of the Sixers centers are reliable enough to be owned in most fantasy leagues. But if you're going to take a flier on one of them, Mullens still gets our vote for 'best bet.'
