Will Bynum, the pint size PG from the Detroit Pistons is has drawn some interest from the New York Knicks. With his small stature but competitive heart, Will has made a lasting impression on opponents. He is in the same mold as Nate Robinson, without the smooth shooting stroke, but he has the strength and tempo to be a very serviceable back up point for many teams, especially the starving NY Knicks.
Will had a decent year this past season, averaging 18 minutes per game, 9.8 points and 3.6 assists on 46% shooting, as well as 31% from downtown. With the sudden departure of Jason Kidd and the question marks behind Pablo Prigion’s return, the Knicks are in the market for a PG to back up Raymond Felton. Is Will that guy? This I am not sure, but what I do know is that the Knicks are desperate for a change of pace point guard in the mold of a Ty Lawson or an Eric Bledsoe. With those players too expensive for the Knicks, players like Will Bynum could be had for part of their taxpayer mini mid or perhaps their vet’s minimum.
