Report: Bulls trade Luol Deng to Cavaliers for Andrew Bynum

ESPN reports that the Chicago Bulls have traded All-Star forward Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs will send Andrew Bynum and a draft pick to Chicago. Chicago is expected to waive Bynum before his $12 million guaranteed kicks in Tuesday. Deng, 28, was frustrated with Chicago over their failure to lock him into a contract extension this year and is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

After Derrick Rose‘s second major knee surgery in three years, rumors had run rampant that the Bulls intended to blow up the core and build a new championship team around the star when he returns.

Deng is averaging 18.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists this season for Chicago.
