You like backup point guards? Masai Ujiri likes backup point guards. Not yet happy with the tandem of Delon Wright and Luke Ridnour (ha... ha), reports are out that the Toronto Raptors are among six teams in pursuit of journeyman point guard Will Bynum.
Will Bynum priority is to play in NBA this season. Teams expressed interest, per source: Chicago, Wash, Phoenix Indiana, Toronto, Memphis.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) July 3, 2015
As a member of the Detroit Pistons in 2013-14, Bynum averaged 8.7 points, 3.9 assists, and 1.8 rebounds per game. Last season, the 32-year-old bounced around between Detroit, Boston, and the Chinese Basketball League before playing ten games for the Washington Wizards. You may remember that three of those games were important ones, as he filled in for an injured John Wall in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Chicago Bulls. In Game 3, he set the screen to free up Paul Pierce for the game-winner! (I'm not grasping at straws, these are his actual 2014-15 highlights.)
He has a standing three-year offer from the Guangdong Southern Tigers, but is exploring NBA options with similar pay.
