Will Bynum PG BOS 3 Days
Bynum (hamstring) was waived by the Celtics on Monday, the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett reports.
The Celtics were reportedly hoping to make another move to avoid waiving Bynum, but with the league's roster cutdown deadline looming Monday evening, the decision has been made to part ways with the veteran. Bynum will become a free agent and should draw considerable interest from teams in need of backcourt depth. The 31-year-old averaged 8.7 points and 3.9 assists in 56 games for Detroit last season.

Bynum (hamstring) won't play in the Celtics' last two preseason games, but the team will look to make another move to avoid waiving him, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald reports.
Bynum was initially believed to be headed for waivers, but it appears the Celtics may make another move that would allow them to keep him. As of now, he is considered the odd man out, but could still end up on the roster if the team makes a deal before the start of the regular season.

Bynum will be waived by the Celtics, the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn reports.
He was traded to the Celtics on Friday, in a salary dumping move by Boston, but they were apparently not interested in seeing if Bynum was a good fit for the roster. Look for him to get picked up by another team before the regular season starts.

Bynum will be traded to the Celtics, ESPN reports.
In exchange for Bynum, the Celtics will ship Joel Anthony to Detroit. From the Celtics' perspective, the move looks to be salary cap related, since Boston will save nearly one million dollars in salary. The Celtics already have 15 guaranteed contracts on their roster, so it's unclear if Bynum will even make the roster. If he does, Bynum would need to see significant injuries to multiple players in Boston's backcourt to have significant fantasy value.

Bynum appears locked in as the third-string point guard as training camp nears.
Brandon Jennings is still locked in as the Pistons starter, and the team brought in D.J. Augustin via free agency this offseason. Bynum opened up the 2013-14 campaign as the No. 3 point guard as well, but he still managed to carve out nearly 19 minutes per game for the second consecutive season. First-year Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy values three-point shooting, which isn't a strength of Bynum's and should lead to many of the backup minutes going to Augustin.

His foot injury will have kept him out for the final seven games of the season. Bynum has been effective off the bench and the Pistons play better team ball when he's out there.
