And if he went to Orlando, a couple years of rebuilding wouldn't be a complete waste. Bynum is just 24 years old.

And yes, the trade does seem to make sense for all parties involved.
I'm curious about that regarding Bynum...if it's a 3 team trade like this and Bynum goes to the Cavs wouldn't the Cavs receive his bird rights just like Orlando would if it was a straight trade between the Lakers/Magic? If the situation is better on the Cavs.....

You're right about the ego thing, however on the Cavs there is no Kobe keeping him in check. No way Irving stops Bynum taking the team over if that were the case. Getting Bynum away from Kobe might be a good thing. Also, regarding ego, how about resurrecting a team the LBJ devastated and then taking on LBJ for the next several years?
