The Andrew Bynum drama seems to be reaching its climax as the Cavaliers were going to either trade their center or waive him within the next 48 hours. The main team mentioned the most in trade rumors with the Cavaliers has been the Los Angeles Lakers but FOX Sports NBA insider Sam Amico reports that there are as many as two or three other teams with offers on the table to acquire Bynum from the Cavs.
One of those teams is the Chicago Bulls, who earlier were ruled out of trade talks with the Cavs for Bynum. But Amico reports that they are apparently back in and among the finalists to land the center from Cleveland. No names were mentioned as far as who the Bulls are offering back, but chances are they could be offering up Luol Deng or perhaps even Carlos Boozer in a trade to land Bynum.
Amico also mentioned the Utah Jazz, who first surfaced in trade rumors earlier this weekend, but it remains unlikely that they’ll want to part ways with Richard Jefferson in any trade. Utah could offer up a draft pick or two to land Bynum but like the Bulls offer, nothing has been mentioned in terms of what is involved or what is being discussed.
The next 48 hours will be crucial for Bynum talks, but it’s clear that someone will have an offer the Cavaliers like and a deal will get done relatively soon.
