Bynum, Gasol on trading block?

The Lakers seemed to be happy with their decision not to trade Pau Gasol, but now that Kobe Bryant is out for six weeks, they seem to be putting Gasol back out there. They've discussed one potential deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, which would exchange Gasol for Andrew Bynum. The Cavaliers would receive a veteran to complement Kyrie Irving, while the Lakers could waive Bynum in order to save more than $20 million in salary and luxury taxes. Not exactly a standard blockbuster trade for the Lakers, but when your playoff hopes are slim, sometimes you have to look to the future.
