Sixers CEO Apologizes for Bynum Debacle
By Thomas McKenna
Philadelphia 76ers CEO Scott O’Neil was candid and straightforward in a recent radio interview when addressing fans’ outrage over 2012’s Andrew Bynum debacle.
The 76ers traded Andre Iguodala, Nikola Vucevic, and Moe Harkless for Bynum in August of 2012, but the All Star center never saw the court due to his injured knees.
O’Neil, who was named the new Sixers CEO earlier in July, seemed to understand the fans’ frustration, and apologized while speaking to Angelo Cataldi of 94 WIP-FM.
The 76ers finished 34-48 last season after having made the Eastern Conference Semifinals in 2012. Bynum recently signed a two-year deal with Cleveland.
