Achy Bynum set to make 1st return to Philadelphia

Andrew Bynum wants to play in Philadelphia. He's not sure his achy knees will let him.

It was the story of Bynum's lone season in Philly.

It's the same refrain now that he's back in town with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Bynum hopes to play Friday night against the team that acquired him in a blockbuster trade in the summer of 2012. He never played a second for the Sixers because of bone bruises in both knees. He had season-ending arthroscopic surgery in March.

With the Sixers in rebuilding mode, they had no interest in resigning the 7-foot Bynum. He signed a two-year, $24 million contract with Cleveland in July. Only one season is guaranteed and the team holds the option for next season.
