Andrew Bynum’s Agent David Lee: Teams Should Talk to Bynum Before Trade

The Dwight Howard saga took another interesting and equally frustrating turn on Thursday night when talks of the superstar center wanting to sign an extension with the Los Angeles Lakers turned out to be false.

After learning the news of another twist to landing Howard long-term, Lakers fans were shaking their heads with disbelief once again with this blockbuster trade seemingly never being able to come to fruition.

Along with the most recent Howard trade news, Andrew Bynum also created a bit of buzz around the league with the All-Star center’s agent, David Lee, claiming that no team has asked for permission to talk to Bynum according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPNLosAngeles.com:

“I can’t imagine any team foolish enough to do the deal without asking permission to speak to Andrew,” Bynum’s agent David Lee told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Thursday. “That’s beyond belief, but strange things happen.”

Lee is right on the money with his statement about the potential blockbuster trade that would send Bynum to the Cleveland Cavaliers, as it would be prudent to have a discussion with the star center before signing off on the deal. Reaching out to Bynum would definitely make the process that much more fluid with the Cavs or Houston Rockets getting a good idea of where they stand with the two-time NBA champion in terms of a long-term extension.

As of right now, Lee claims that no team has asked the Lakers for permission to have a discussion with Bynum about a potential trade. Reports of a Bynum’s wish list of teams and desire to sign a long-term deal with the Cavs have since been refuted.

The constant twists and turns in the Lakers’ attempts to acquire Howard appear to be endless. There’s no telling what to believe at this point with the only certainty being that the Lakers want Howard and he wants out of Orlando.

At this point in time, the supposed trade talks between the Orlando Magic, Cavs and Lakers are ongoing. No trade is imminent as all three teams continue to try and find some middle ground in which a deal can ultimately get done.

    I agree with Krystal.. i don’t think we’ll get Dwight. Even though he wants to come, these money sucking Agents wont let it happen

    Bynum will probably be an ass and ruin it just because the Lakers don’t want him.

    Only thing Lakers needs to tell him, is either sign the extension now or you are risk getting traded.

    Agent often screw the Lakers, remember when the agent trick Ariza sign with Rocket for less than million different? Agent do put the best interest for player or the team, or they care who has biggest wallet.

    Initially I thought the General
    Managers trying to acquire either Howard or Bynum are smart by insisting that
    their potential asset assures the team he will resign with their team. Then I
    thought you can’t have your cake and eat it too. This kind of deal has
    insurmountable risk either way you look at it.

    The teams involved in the trade
    and trying to land each center, either Bynum or Howard, reduces their
    opportunity of acquiring the center of choice in 2013. The two centers want
    maximum deals next season, which is good for the players, but there is no
    assurance they would be healthy. Both Andrew and Dwight have potential of
    losing their effectiveness due to Dwight’s back and Andrew’s knees.  It is actually better for each of the two
    teams to take the centers with no contract extension and minimize the risk that
    they could not reach of their potential due to injuries. Since the centers are
    now focused on the dollars and cents they will definitely sign with the team
    that they will play for this season.

    In my mind, I will have the
    cake, when Lakers have Howard on the roster and Andrew goes to a team : hopefully
    the change of scenery allows Drew to mature and become a superstar that we
    think he is going to be.  Andrew doesn’t
    realize that the Lakers did all the team could to give him a chance to flourish.

    On eating it too, due to
    his irresponsibility, Andrew may never be the superstar that we think he will
    be.  I have been a Bynum fan throughout
    his career here in LA and would like him getting at least 15 boards every night
    (half of his record 30 at Spurs) and 5 blocks (half of his at Staples when
    Lakers were playing against the Nuggets.
