With the offseason acquisition of Andrew Bynum, the Philadelphia 76ers are believed to be shopping Kwame Brown or Spencer Hawes, according to Sam Amico of Fox Sports:

That leads some around the league to believe either Brown, Hawes or Allen will be made available come the February trading deadline, if not the end of training camp in October. At the very least, some teams with holes in the middle plan to start placing calls.

Head coach Doug Collins said Brown would be the starting center, but landing Bynum obviously bumps him to the bench. The Sixers signed Brown, a free agent with the Golden State Warriors, in July after using the team amnesty clause on Elton Brand. Philadelphia also boosted its frontcourt by re-signing Hawes that same week. The team also has LaVoy Allen, so it's likely that at least one of the three centers coming off the bench will be with a different franchise at some point next season.
