Sixers GM: Andrew Bynum just another free agent

New Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie said at a press conference Tuesday that re-signing center Andrew Bynum is not a top priority and that he is "just another free agent."

Bynum did not play this season after having trouble with his knees after being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers in four-team deal to Philadelphia in August. The Sixers proceeded to go 34-48 without him after starting the season as a possible top contender in the Eastern Conference.

"I think of Andrew like the thousands of other young men that are walking around the world that are unrestricted free agents, that have potential to play NBA basketball, and he is one of those," Hinkie said, via Comcast SportsNet Philly "Superstar players matter in this league. This is a hard league, everybody is trying to get the same thing,” Hinkie said. “There are no silver bullets, where you do one thing and it makes everything easy overnight.”
