Philadelphia 76ers owner Josh Harris addressed the media on Thursday morning, confirming that head coach Doug Collins has resigned, but will be returning as a consultant to the team.

Another big off-season question for the Sixers will be whether or not they will re-sign center Andrew Bynum, who didn't play a single game this season. Bynum will be a free agent this summer if the team doesn't re-sign him.

Harris admitted that the Bynum experiment was a failure to this point, but didn't rule out the possibility of re-signing him.

"The Bynum thing obviously has been very disappointing," Harris said.

    "There's no one scenario that is determinable right now," he continued. "Of course we're going to look at bringing Bynum back... a healthy Bynum playing is a needle-mover."

    More Harris on Bynum:

    "We're going to weigh the positives and negatives and try to make a reasoned assessment about Andrew."

    "I'm not saying we're going to bring [Bynum] back - I'm saying we aren't ruling it out."

    "We're very interested and open to Andrew coming back" in a way "that makes sense for us."
