According to Adrian Wojnaroski of Y! Sports, the Cavs want contract assurances from Andrew Bynum in the potential Dwight Howard trade to the Lakers. Thus far, the Cavs have not spoken with Bynum or his agent as the Lakers are only willing to grant permission once the framework of a deal is in place with all teams.

With Bynum, the Cavs are looking to pair the 24 year old All Star Center with Rookie of the Year point guard Kyrie Irving.

The Magic have been very indecisive on what they want for Howard, so until that is resolved, no deal is close to happening.
