08:06 AM ET 07.26 | In an indication of the Lakers' ongoing interest in locking up Andrew Bynum, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak and Bynum's agent spoke Wednesday about a contract extension. One conversation between Kupchak and David Lee is hardly grounds for a judgment that the Lakers won't trade Bynum for disgruntled Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, but the Lakers have a decision to make with Bynum. ... The Lakers have no one but newly acquired Steve Nash under contract for the 2014-15 season, when they are intent on dropping under the NBA's luxury-tax plateau. Kupchak declined to detail the Wednesday conversation between him and Bynum's representative beyond a general description of "productive and positive."

BS. David Lee denied that any talks have taken place.

I read it on Bleacher Report so I know it's true...

Bye Andrew!

Lakers might not have a choice later on. Bynum could be the face of the franchise in 2 years.

Could be, I just hope he developes a heart that wants it! Right now he doesn't seem to take life seriously!

They better great big men are hard to come by they better make Bynum happy. He is the #2 Center in the league.

I think throwing more $ into him is a very risky move- as you say- he truly has not warranted another max contractand in todays NBA with the shift from big men to wing play....you guys might be better off moving him for some young athletic talent.We have seen that you don't need a dominant offensive center anymore to win....no reason to 'lock up' and reward this immature dude with more free $$

I follow your logic but to say he has not warranted another max contract is a bit out there. Didnt the likes of Hibbert get Max money? He is the #2 Center in the League, he and Gasol will shine with the addition of Nash

I think it would be great if all of the few teams Howard wants to go to become locked up with players so the only team that wil be able to sign him will be Charlotte or Sacramento or some other crappy team.

LOL

Bynum has potential, but he seems like just one of those guys who will never make the most of it. Too bad.
