via Sources -- Cleveland Cavaliers can be trade partner in potential Dwight Howard deal - ESPN Chicago.
It's a very nice fit if the talks progess. The Cavaliers want a star to pair with Kyrie Irving, and Bynum gives them that. He and Irving would make for a devastating pair. The Cavaliers have young talent like Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters to send to Orlando, as well as additional picks acquired in trades. Varejao would give the Magic a quality center to start over with, and a good veteran with a manageable deal. It would also provide salary room to send out either Hedo Turkoglu or Jason Richardson. The Lakers reportedly will not take on Turkoglu's deal but are open to Richardson's. It's unlikely that Cleveland would be receptive to taking on Turkoglu's deal, but for a chance at Bynum, and with their cap space, it's not a dead-set no at this point.
