Kupchak thanks Andrew Bynum

(The Phanatic Magazine) The Lakers have also confirmed the Dwight Howard blockbuster and GM Mitch Kupchak thanked new Sixers center Andrew Bynum for his efforts as a Laker.

“We’d like to thank Andrew for all he’s done for the team and the organization,” said Kupchak.  “Andrew has been with us since we drafted him at seventeen years old and over the last seven years we have watched him develop into an All-Star player who has helped the team win two NBA Championships.  He’s a special talent with a bright future.  We appreciate all of his contributions and wish him well for the remainder of his career.”

Bynum, originally selected by the Lakers with the 10th overall pick in the 2005 NBA Draft, averaged 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.93 blocks this past season while earning Second Team All-NBA honors.  A seven-year veteran and two-time NBA Champion with the Lakers who was named to his first All-Star Team in February, Bynum averaged 11.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.60 blocks over 392 career games in Los Angeles.
