Celtics looking at trade destinations for Will Bynum

Celtics' newest guard, Will Bynum, could be waived or traded within the next few days.

According to the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy, Danny Ainge and Mark Bartelstein, Bynum's agent, have been discussing trade destinations for Bynum.

Bynum, who is recovering from a strained hamstring, hasn't been to Celtics training camp and hasn't even been invited, according to Bartelstein. The 31-year old veteran did visit Boston over the weekend for a physical, but has not practiced with the team yet. Sources believe if Bynum isn't dealt sooner rather than later, the Celtics will waive him.

If the Celtics do waive him, they will be forced to eat Bynum's $2.9 million contract. Making a trade a week before the season starts isn't going to be easy but the Celtics will try to trade away the guard at some point this week.

Bynum was traded to Boston last week from Detroit in exchange for Joel Anthony. The trade saved the Celtics $900,000 in cap space.

Celtics need to trade or waive one more player in order to be at the 15-man roster limit.
