    The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to trade Andrew Bynum and a draft pick to the Chicago Bulls for forward Luol Deng, sources told ESPN.com.
    The deal is expected to be completed on Tuesday morning when the teams have a conference call with the league office.
    Bynum is expected to be released by 5 p.m. on Tuesday before the second half of his $12.3 million contract becomes guaranteed.
    The deal will save the Bulls more than $15 million in salary and luxury taxes, taking them below the salary-cap threshold. In addition, the Cavs will send the Bulls a first round pick owed to them by the Sacramento Kings that is top 10 protected in the next two drafts.
    The Cavs had discussions for more than a week with the Los Angeles Lakers involving in a deal for Pau Gasol but could not come to an agreement. The Cavs also had talks about trading Bynum's contract to the Utah Jazz for Richard Jefferson.

    doesn't lu's contract run out at the end of the year anyway and he'd be off the books?

    Do the LALs p/u the big cancer after his release? Would love it as a Celtic fan.
    Hope they sign him for 6 years and screw their books again.
