24 hours after news broke via Twitter about a trade between the Lakers and Cavs (which was later discounted as false), here we stand with Pau Gasol still a Laker and Andrew Bynum still a Cavalier. That isn’t to say the last 24 hours haven’t been drama filled.
The Lakers and Cavs have remained in talks, with the Lakers insistent on obtaining a young asset in addition to Bynum, and the Cavs insisting on not giving one up. Specifically, the inclusion of Dion Waiters has come into question.
Even more, the Lakers have tried anything to get another player with Bynum.
As of now, the Lakers and Cavs sit in a deadlock, with neither side willing to budge.
With less than 24 hours remaining before Bynum’s deal becomes guaranteed, the deadline is quickly approaching for a deal to get done.
