Cleveland (WOIO) - The Cavaliers are quickly closing in on decision-time concerning center Andrew Bynum, who's set to cash in for another $6 million with the team if he's still with the club on Tuesday. The Cavs have been working the phones, negotiating with the Lakers and Jazz, trying to swing a deal.
If the Bynum to LA for Pau Gasol proposal falls through, the Cavaliers do still have another option, with Utah, according to Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports, who say the Cavaliers are willing to part with a second-round pick in a Bynum-for-Jefferson deal.
The Cavs have hit the skids, losing eight of their last nine games, with Bynum out of the mix. Bynum's $12.3 million contract becomes fully guaranteed on Tuesday at 5 p.m.
If the Cavs don't trade their disgruntled center, they could waive Bynum and save $6 million off their payroll. They also could also keep him and attempt to trade him again before next month's trade deadline.
