The agent for Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum tells Jason Lloyd of the Akron-Beach Journal that his client has had "zero conversations" with Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant about a rumored three-way deal that would send Bynum to Cleveland and Dwight Howard to the Lakers.
"I've had zero conversations with Chris Grant," said David Lee, Bynum's agent. "I would imagine any team involved in this trade would be smart enough to talk to us."
The rumored three-way deal would send Howard to Los Angeles, Bynum to Cleveland and a package centered around Anderson Varejao to the Orlando Magic. While Bynum and Howard are under contract, it's pretty common for agents to be consulted before big trades are completed. This would seem to indicate that a deal is not close.
Bynum had been reportedly open to signing a long-term contract with the Cavaliers, but Lee declined to comment when asked about the issue.
