The Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers are still engaged in trade discussions centered around Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, but both sides are still far apart. The Cavaliers have refused to include Dion Waiters in a package deal, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The Lakers are still seeking additional assets and do not want to trade Gasol as a straight salary dump.
The Cavaliers must trade or waive Bynum by Tuesday or an additional $6.2 million of his 2013-2014 salary becomes fully guaranteed. The second-year of his contract is fully non-guaranteed, however. Cleveland is expected to waive Bynum if they are unable to deal him prior to Tuesday. If the Lakers trade for Bynum they are also expected to waive their former center.
Cleveland is resistant to add assets to a trade for Gasol, however, because he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Losing future assets as a team that is still building is unappealing to Cleveland, especially with the additional risk of Gasol signing elsewhere.
