Will Bynum: It has been a great run in Detroit. You have all been so supportive for me throughout my time with the Pistons. Goodbyes are painful but are signs of great memories. Thank you all for being part of this chapter and taking part in my journey. #OneLove #StrivingForExcellence #NewBeginnings tmi.me

Gigi Datome: I wish the best in life and basketball to my former teammate Will Bynum, you always have been great to me. Good luck with the @celtics ! Twitter @GigiDatome

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and guard Will Bynum are expected to meet on Saturday, according to two NBA sources, and the team is likely to waive Bynum, who was acquired Friday from the Detroit Pistons. Bynum, 31, is in Boston and will take his physical before he and his representatives meet with Ainge. NBA sources said the Celtics are content with their point guard lineup of Rajon Rondo, Marcus Smart, and Phil Pressey, leaving Bynum out of the equation. Boston Globe

The Celtics still have 16 guaranteed contracts, including that of rookie Dwight Powell, and just 15 roster spots. So Ainge will have to waive a player with a guaranteed deal or make a trade to reduce before the season opener Oct. 29 against the Brooklyn Nets. After Saturday’s meeting, that move is expected to be Bynum, who will garner interest on the free agent market once he is placed on waivers. Boston Globe

Bynum, 31, is in the final year of a contract that will pay him $2.9 million this season, while Anthony, 32, also in the final year of his contract, will earn $3.8 million. It is unclear exactly what role, if any, the Celtics envision for the veteran guard, who joins a roster that's already stuffed with perimeter players. "Right now, we're just going to take a deep breath and let the trade go through," said Mark Bartelstein, Bynum's agent. "Danny [Ainge] and I, I'm sure we'll talk and see what makes the most sense for everybody. We're gong to keep an open mind right now and not jump to any conclusions." CSNNE.com

Chris Forsberg: Story coming, but the move appears to be related to roster flexibility. Team saves $900,000 in swap. Anthony was on roster fringe. Twitter @ESPNForsberg

One of Loyer's bigger challenges internally was keeping point guard Brandon Jennings engaged after Cheeks was fired. Jennings regarded Cheeks as a father figure and as he failed to adapt after the change, Loyer found himself turning more to backup Will Bynum, one of several Pistons who later ended the season injured.

The Pistons have perfected the blueprint for insurrection. Some players privately pouted while others openly pounced on Cheeks. When backup point guard Will Bynum unabashedly got in Cheeks’ face at Orlando last week, it was only a matter of time before the Pistons served up another head coaching sacrifice under the guise of demanding better performance.

Cheeks also went with Chauncey Billups as backup point guard in place of Will Bynum, which whom he had a heated discussion during Wednesday's loss at Orlando. Billups hadn't played since Jan. 10. Cheeks said Bynum's benching was not punitive. "Nah, I just wanted to play Chauncey tonight," he said. Booth Newspapers

Will Bynum is expected to undergo an MRI on his re-aggravated hamstring. Bynum missed five games, returned for two games, then was expected to miss Friday’s game against the Lakers. Chauncey Billups, meanwhile, took shots in practice Thursday but didn’t run. His knee tendinitis has kept him from playing the last nine games. Detroit Free Press
