A free agent once again this summer, Will Bynum said Guangdong has a standing three-year offer for him to return. He is “definitely considering it” but will seek a comparable deal from an NBA team before making a decision. “The difference is for me, I didn’t come over there with the mentality to get mines, coming over there to score,” said Bynum, who averaged 22.3 points and 7.1 assists in 30 games for Guangdong. “I came over there with the mentality to win and teach the organization how to win, sharing the basketball and learning how to win. There’s a difference between people just coming over there for a couple months. That’s why they want me to come back for three years because of the way that I played and the effect I had on the organization and the players. Because not only was I playing well myself but I was getting other people involved and making it easier for our team and having fun with it.”

But new Wizards guard Will Bynum, who signed a 10-day contract with Washington last Friday, was the 27-year-old Yi’s teammate in China on the Guangdong Southern Tigers for three months earlier this year and emphasized Yi is capable of an NBA comeback. “Yi’s [expletive] good,” Bynum said after Wizards practice Thursday. “I played against him when he was here too, when he was in Milwaukee and Jersey. He got a whole lot better. He’s physical now. He always could shoot the basketball. He’s rolling. Yi’s tough, man. He’s a matchup nightmare over there.”

The 6-foot Bynum is 32 years old and spent the previous five seasons with the Detroit Pistons as an offensive spark plug off the bench. He averaged 8.4 points and 3.4 assists in 18.9 minutes per game in his five years in Detroit. Wall was also asked about Bynum specifically. “I like his game, I like the things he can do,” Wall said. “He can run the team, he can make shots, he can get into the paint. He just plays with the competitive nature I’ve seen playing against him when he was with the Pistons.”

Will Bynum: This 6-0 guard is the primary target among overseas talent. His agent, Mark Bartelstein, also has Bradley Beal. Bartelstein contacted the Wizards to gauge if there was any interest in Bynum when he returns from China, where he’s currently playing for the Guangdong Southern Tigers. Bynum was traded from the Detroit Pistons to the Boston Celtics, who waived him, this season and hasn’t played in the NBA. This is why the Wizards can wait for him and aren’t confined to the March 1 deadline. Bynum has been a pro since 2005, playing two seasons in Israel after spending his first season with the Golden State Warriors when he played in just 15 games. Bynum spent 2008-14 with the Detroit Pistons where he averaged 8.4 points and 3.4 assists. There’s “a lot” of interest in Bynum but this is clearly the guy the Wizards want if Allen doesn’t pan out. And there’s no indication at this point that Allen will.

Bobby Brown, whose contract with Dongguan Leopards includes an NBA out, could be available for NBA teams on February 1 since his club is no lock to make the postseason. Brown, who has experience in the NBA with Sacramento, Minnesota, New Orleans and LA Clippers, would be more than open to playing for the Cavaliers. “Right now, I’m focused on Dongguan and winning games with my teammates,” Brown told HoopsHype. “I will say this about Cleveland: How could anyone not want to play with LeBron? First off, he is the best player in the league and second, you have a chance to be a part of a championship team. Plus, playing in Europe, I was a big fan of (David) Blatt and always wanted to play for him. Also, I have known (David Griffin) since I was in the draft and have always been a huge believer in him.”
