The list of possible trade destinations for Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum keeps on growing. The Cavs and the Utah Jazz are in talks about a possible swap for veteran Richard Jefferson, according to a report from ESPN's Marc Stein.
Bynum's partially guaranteed contract of $6 million will become a fully-guaranteed $12.3 million on Jan. 7. Trade suitors will be interested in nabbing the former All-Star before then in order to be able to waive him and clear significant cap space.
Meanwhile, Jefferson has said that he wants to play for a contender and that he is a "gun for hire."
The former Nets star has had a miniature revival of sorts starting for the Jazz, who have the NBA's second-worst record at 11-25. Jefferson is averaging 10 points per game and shooting 42 percent from beyond the arc.
Cleveland is looking to make a deal before Tuesday at 5 p.m. when Bynum's contract vests. If the Cavs decide to keep him, he could become a valuable trade chip for the coming summer as his 2014-2015 salary is entirely non-guaranteed.
