The Pistons appear to be making baby steps with Will Bynum. Negotiations are ongoing, and although things are moving slowly, they appear to be going in the right direction.
"Joe and I are working at it," Bartlestein said. "We're putting a lot of time and energy into it."
Bartlestein, the agent for recently signed David Lee (Golden State), Brad Miller (Houston) as well as All-Star Danny Granger (Indiana), didn't express any trepidation about getting a deal done.
"Obviously, it's a matter of coming to an agreement both sides are happy with," he said.
As has been maintained throughout all of this, Bynum is expected to re-sign at some point. Just when remains to be seen, but patience is key in this type of situation.
