Veteran NBA reporter Chris Sherdian considers Will Bynum the player most likely to be dealt at the Feb. 21 trade deadline.
The rebuilding Pistons don't have much need for Bynum, who will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. He'd be an explosive bench option for a contender such as the Thunder. Despite getting just 18.0 minutes per game this season, Bynum is averaging 9.1 points and 3.7 assists.
|Sun Feb 3 2013||15:56||Will Bynum has 18 & 10 off DET bench|
Will Bynum came off the Pistons' bench for 18 points, 10 assists and one steal vs. the Lakers, making 9-of-18 FGs in 29 minutes.
Rodney Stuckey was limited by foul trouble and Jose Calderon wasn't available due to visa issues, which makes this performance feel like an isolated incident. The backcourt is simply too crowded to expect reliable value from Bynum, who hadn't had a single steal in his previous six games.
|Sat Feb 2 2013||00:55||Bynum scores 11 points with eight assists|
Will Bynum scored 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting with eight assists in 16 minutes off the bench on Friday.
With Jose Calderon about to jump in the mix these types of outbursts will be less frequent. Bynum can be watched from the wire in most formats.
|Sun Jan 27 2013||21:10||Will Bynum goes for 9 & 12 in win|
Will Bynum came off the bench and had nine points and 12 assists on 3-of-7 shooting in 20 minutes on Sunday.
Kyle Singler started at shooting guard, as usual, but Bynum stepped up off the bench on a night that saw Brandon Knight score a career-high 31 points, but not hand out a single assist. After today's game Bynum is averaging 12 points and five assists over his last five games, making him worth a deep-league look, despite coming off the bench. The 12 dimes were a season high, and most he's had in a game since he somehow went for 20 assists in a game back in 2010.
|Tue Jan 22 2013||22:58||Will Bynum scores 15 points with six dimes|
Will Bynum scored 15 points with four rebounds, six assists and one block in 26 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday.
He has strung together some games with an average of 16.3 points and 5.0 assists in his last four contests. Garbage time was a bit of a factor in this game and Rodney Stuckey also suffered an apparent mild ankle sprain late in the fourth quarter. If Stuckey's ankle injury turns out to be an issue, Bynum makes sense as a pickup in some deeper formats.
|Thu Jan 17 2013||18:20||Will Bynum shoots the lights out in London|
Will Bynum scored 22 points on 10-of-16 shooting, including 2-for-2 from 3-point range, in Thursday's game at the O2 Arena in London.
Bynum also chipped in four assists, two rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes -- a nice line for the Pistons' sparkplug guard. The 22 points were Bynum's biggest output since he scored 25 against the Heat on Dec. 28. A lot of his output Thursday came during a 7-0 run fueled exclusively by Bynum that got the Pistons within shouting distance of the Knicks in the second half before New York eventually pulled away.
|Sat Jan 12 2013||22:28||Will Bynum shoots 6-of-6 in Pistons' loss|
Will Bynum made all six of his field goals on Saturday, finishing a tough loss to the Jazz with 13 points, four assists and three steals.
The sparkplug guard gave the Pistons' offense a jolt, and as a team they shot 52 percent from the field, but they were undone by 17 turnovers and 13-of-21 shooting at the FT line. Bynum did his damage in just 19 minutes and he won't often be this efficient, to put it mildly.
|Tue Jan 1 2013||22:50||Will Bynum scores 15 in win over Kings|
Will Bynum hit 3-of-6 shots for 15 points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Tuesday.
Bynum has been playing heavy minutes and scoring points over his last four games, but will take a hit once Rodney Stuckey is back from his ankle injury.
|Sun Dec 30 2012||23:03||Will Bynum cools off w/ just eight points|
Will Bynum cooled off with eight points, five assists and five turnovers in 24 minutes on Sunday.
Rodney Stuckey was out again, so the door was wide open, but Bynum played at a more realistic pace tonight after averaging 28.0 ppg in the past two games. With Stuckey day-to-day, and this quiet game in the foreground, it's hard to have faith in Bynum for the upcoming week.
|Sat Dec 29 2012||01:41||Will Bynum scores 25 points with 10 assists|
Will Bynum scored 25 points with a season-high 10 assists in Friday's win over the Heat.
Bynum added two rebounds and a steal to go with three 3-pointers on 10-of-16 shooting overall in his 28 minutes off the bench. He scored 31 points in a big effort his last time out, and has a history of short-term explosions followed by periods of dormancy. It also didn't hurt that Rodney Stuckey (ankle) was out, so owners still need to add Bynum at their own risk.
|Wed Dec 26 2012||23:33||Will Bynum scores season-high 31 points|
Will Bynum came off the Pistons' bench and caught fire late, finishing a double-overtime loss with a season-high 31 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
Lawrence Frank cleared his bench with the Pistons down 81-62 after the third quarter and his reserves led a furious comeback to force overtime. Bynum was spectacular tonight and Rodney Stuckey suffered a sprained ankle, but it remains to be seen if tonight's performance has earned him extra minutes. Bynum had scored a total of 19 points in December before tonight's explosion, and Stuckey was able to return from his ankle injury (which was a surprise). Just keep an eye on Bynum going forward, as this looks more like a fluke than anything else.
|Fri Nov 23 2012||07:28||Players questioning Lawrence Frank's rotation|
Some Pistons players have started to question Lawrence Frank's substitution patterns.
"I'm having to adjust to everybody," said Will Bynum. "I'm playing with so many different people. First I go from not playing with (Rodney) Stuckey to playing with Stuckey every day." Tayshaun Prince added, ""That isn't my decision, but we need to figure out some things to do when teams are making runs to get us a good opportunity at the rim or the foul line." It's not a good sign that players are questioning their head coach this early in the season.

|Thu Oct 18 2012||09:12||Will Bynum worked on defense in offseason|
Will Bynum "picked the brain" of Tony Allen to improve his defense in the offseason.
After dealing with a foot injury that really limited him last season, Bynum improved his D on the advice of Lawrence Frank. Bynum also shot a career-worst 38.1 percent from the field last season, but he's entering this season healthy and should be in line for a bounce back season. Regardless, he's still not a fantasy asset.

Will Bynum added weightlifting and Pilates to his offseason regimen to prepare for the 2012-13 season.
Bynum admitted that he let his "situation" impact how he played, and now he's looking to bounce back in the coming year. Although he's a candidate to be dealt with his $3.5 million expiring contract, he is highly unlikely to become a fantasy asset regardless of where he lands.

|Sat Apr 7 2012||00:07||Bynum scores 15 points off the bench|
Will Bynum scored 15 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including a three) with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block in 26 minutes.
Owners should just watch Bynum for now, but the real concern here is the full workload for Brandon Knight. Knight has been playing very tentatively and it has opened the window for Bynum, or at least it did tonight.
|Sat Mar 31 2012||23:56||Will Bynum scores 17 points off DET bench|
Pistons guard Will Bynum scored 17 points against the Bobcats on Saturday, making 5-of-9 FGs (one 3-pointer) and 6-of-9 FTs.
Bynum added two rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes, but here are two reasons you should ignore this outburst: 1) he's averaging 5.0 points this season, and 2) he only played this much due to the absence of Ben Gordon (groin) and Rodney Stuckey (hamstring), both of whom are day-to-day.
|Sat Mar 31 2012||01:56||Bynum misses all eight shots vs. Bulls|
Will Bynum missed all eight of his field goal attempts on Friday against the Bulls.
Bynum played 12 minutes and had just three rebounds to his credit. There was some question about whether or not he could step into the void created by Ben Gordon and Rodney Stuckey, and that was answered tonight.
|Tue Mar 27 2012||01:39||Will Bynum returned to action on Monday March 26|
Will Bynum returned to action on Monday March 26.
|Sat Mar 24 2012||18:42||Will Bynum out Saturday w/ virus|
Will Bynum (virus) will not play in Saturday's game vs. New York.
Bynum has been very quiet this season, thanks in part to the Pistons' glut of guards. His absence will thrust Walker Russell into the rotation as a backup PG.

Will Bynum returned from a personal leave and had four points in 11 minutes on Tuesday.
He's an afterthought as long as the other Detroit guards are healthy.
