As reported by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the Cleveland Cavaliers have traded center Andrew Bynum to the Chicago Bulls for Luol Deng.
Its been speculated over the past week or so that Bynum may be headed back to the Los Angeles Lakers and in return the Cavs would receive Pau Gasol.
Cleveland (14-18) are struggling this season and without Derrick Rose may be looking at clearing cap space and starting fresh.
It’s assumed that Bynum will be waived tomorrow by 5pm and clear waivers to become a free agent.
Look for the Miami Heat to sign the two-time NBA champion with Greg Oden’s future in doubt.
Deng is averaging 19 points and 6.9 rebounds per game this season.
