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.” Washington Post

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. CSNWashington.com

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."

Danny Ainge and Mark Bartelstein, the agent for Will Bynum, continued to work yesterday to find a destination for the veteran point guard that might also bring the Celtics something of value in return. “We’re trying to see if there is something we can do,” said Bartelstein, who added Bynum is working out in Chicago, where years ago he was the high school teammate of Tony Allen.

Bartelstein stressed that Bynum has neither been asked to stay away from Celtics training camp nor refused to attend. According to the agent, Bynum has recovered from a strained hamstring that kept him out of preseason games for the Pistons prior to last week’s Joel Anthony trade, and is ready to resume workouts for either the Celtics or another team.

Eric Pincus: Looks like the Boston Celtics trade w/ the Detroit Pistons was a little more complicated than originally thought re: use of trade exceptions. The Celtics used their Humphries TPE to take in Will Bynum - was $4.25 mil, now $1.3 mil remaining @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/boston-celtics… Twitter @EricPincus

Eric Pincus: Boston also attained a new TPE for Joel Anthony, for $3.8 mil, expiring in Oct 2015. Basically Boston sacrificed $450k of Hump TPE, expiring July - to have $3.8 mil Anthony TPE til Oct @BBallInsiders basketballinsiders.com/boston-celtics… Twitter @EricPincus

Will Bynum, who is expected to be waived this week after coming over from Detroit in last week’s Joel Anthony trade, was, as expected, a ghost yesterday. “He’s not here,” Stevens said simply. Boston Herald
