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.” Washington Post

“He said he would but it has to be the right situation with the right point guard where they believe in him,” Bynum said. “But Yi can definitely be a force over here.” Washington Post

The Wizards (35-27) still can acquire a player who hasn't been in the NBA this season such as Will Bynum -- another target on their short list -- from overseas. While Bynum's season in China has ended, he has a hamstring injury, CSNwashington.com confirmed, which limits his immediate availability even if he's still interested in Washington. The ailment appears to be minor. CSNWashington.com

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."
