01:47 PM ET 01.06 | The Andrew Bynum drama seems to be reaching its climax as the Cavaliers were going to either trade their center or waive him within the next 48 hours. The main team mentioned the most in trade rumors with the Cavaliers has been the Los Angeles Lakers but FOX Sports NBA insider Sam Amico reports that there are as many as two or three other teams with offers on the table to acquire Bynum from the Cavs. One of those teams is the Chicago Bulls, who earlier were ruled out of trade talks with the Cavs for Bynum. But Amico reports that they are apparently back in and among the finalists to land the center from Cleveland. No names were mentioned as far as who the Bulls are offering back, but chances are they could be offering up Luol Deng or perhaps even Carlos Boozer in a trade to land Bynum.

Dumping Boozer on the Cavs might be a good move but not Deng. I am sure that Boozer will receive a 'warm reception.' Hahahaha

Bad move for the Bulls, teams should literately stay away from Bynum dudes a cancer. I don't know how may more teams he needs to got through for gm's to understand

Best move for Cavs is to just waive him and end it. There's SOME sense in taking Deng, but Boozer makes no sense.
if Bulls DO acquire Bynum, they are probably going to cut waive him anyway. Just a salary dump IMO.

Makes no sense.

Bulls could more easily let Deng walk after the season and amnesty Boozer. That's about a $25 million salary dump after the season right there.

They don't need to bring in Bynum to do that.......unless they want to dump salary for the 2nd half of the season.

Boozer?The guy who tricked them into letting him out of his contract and then signed for more money in Utah?LmaoAgain, what does this say about Thompson and Bennett?....smdh

The danger of believing rumors, like Boozer coming to the Cavs for Bynum, tends to make you look foolish. Boozer was NEVER in the discussion and never would be given his stiffing of the Cavs and their need (lack of) for another undersized PF.

Well.....never underestimate the lengths that a cheapskate will go to in order to safe $$$$.

The last paragraph of my previous post applies. Nope.....I really didn't see this coming; never anticipated that Reinsdorf would allow a conference rival to get stronger through a trade, but I guess the allure of saving $7 million or so (that's what the Bulls will REALLY save) by trading Deng and releasing Bynum was just too great.

BTW.....rumor has it that the Bulls did offer Deng a 3-year deal for about $30 million (like I figured they would) but he rejected it.

I wonder what Cleveland will offer him to stay.....

Bynum won't play a minute for the Bulls, he'll be waived to get them under salary cap. Boozer will be amnestied at the end of the season, Nikola Mirotic will finally be signed and the Bulls will have money to sign a big name free agent.Makes plenty of sense to me.

It depends on whether LeBron comes home.
