CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – It seems like no matter what team wants Dwight Howard these days, the Cavs seem to find their way involved in the deal.
The latest Howard rumor comes from Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld, who says that the Cavs are part of a possible three-team deal with the Lakers, who are trying to get Howard.
According to Kennedy, the deal has Howard to Lakers, Andrew Bynum to Cavs and a combo of picks, prospects as well as cap relief back to the Orlando Magic.
Last year in 60 games for the Lakers, Bynum put up 18.7 points per game, 11.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists. He’s 24 years old, and was the Lakers first-round pick of the Lakers back in 2005.
In his career, Bynum has averaged 11.7 points per game, shooting 56.6 percent from the field, and 7.9 rebounds.
The Cavs were one of the team mentioned earlier this offseason already to be involved with Howard when the Brooklyn Nets were trying to acquire him.
The thought at that point was the Cavs would get Kris Humphries in the deal, along with Orlando’s Quentin Richardson, Brooklyn’s Sundiata Gaines (on a one-year guaranteed deal), a first-round pick and $3 million from the Nets.
Stay tuned to 92.3 The Fan as the story about the Cavs and Bynum evolves.
