One major stumbling block in a potential Dwight Howard to the Lakers trade was getting Howard to commit long term to Lakers. That appears like it has been taken care of. Another stumbling block is Andrew Bynum.
He would be the central trade piece, but he hasn’t given any indications that he would give a long term commitment to any team.
His agent says the Cavs who are now most likely to get him in a trade haven’t spoken to him.
Andrew Bynum’s agent said he has not yet heard from the Cleveland Cavaliers, the place he would be sent and be expected to sign an extension should a deal go down. From Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal.
Andrew Bynum’s agent, David Lee, told me he has had zero conversations with #Cavs GM Chris Grant about a possible trade. “I would imagine any team involved in this trade would be smart enough to talk to us,” Lee said, referring to the fact Bynum is entering the final year of his deal.
