    The Cavs will send Andrew Bynum and a draft pick to the Bulls for Luol Deng.

    If the draft pick is protected, steal for Deng

    Chicago dips under the luxury tax limit if they waive Bynum.

    Cavs send Blazers 2015 & 2016 2nd rounder, Sacramento 1st rounder, and right to swap 2015 1st rounder but lottery protected.

    Detail on the protection:

    2014 first round draft pick from Sacramento

    Sacramento's 1st round pick to Cleveland protected for selections 1-12 in 2014, 1-10 in 2015, 1-10 in 2016 or 1-10 in 2017; if Sacramento has not conveyed a 1st round pick to Cleveland by 2017, then Sacramento will instead convey its 2017 2nd round pick to Cleveland protected for selections 56-60 (if this pick falls within its protected range and is therefore not conveyed, then Sacramento's obligation to Cleveland will be extinguished) [Cleveland-Sacramento, 6/30/2011]

    ... which they clearly will. That's the power of non-guaranteed deals, though they gave up some pick assets for a potential rental.

    Let's see if Morey can get anything helpful for Ronnie Brewer tomorrow.

    From the JJ Hickson-Omri Casspi deal, I believe.

    The tank is strong with this one.

    Practically a win-win for both teams. The Bulls could still very well get a top 5 pick in this draft & with that money saved up (Boozer amnesty also coming), they could get Derrick Rose some very talented help. For Cleveland, you get the veteran all star that you need to mentor the young guns.

    By no means are either of the teams done making big moves, ESPECIALLY Cleveland.

    That was the guy I wanted more than any non star player.

    I am thinking the Brewer comment was tongue in cheek, right?

    Right?
