Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum told reporters he would play against the 76ers Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The former Sixer said he would sit out Saturday's contest against Philadelphia in Cleveland.
"I think they'll probably boo, but that's their choice," Bynum said of Sixers fans during Wednesday's shootaround in Milwaukee. "It wasn't my choice to get rid of me. I don't feel bad at all. . . . If I was not hurt, I would've played. That's really the end to that story."
The Sixers acquired Bynum from the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-team trade in August 2012. Bynum, who made $16.9 million last season, never played for the Sixers because of chronically injured knees.
