NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers Won't Give Up Andrew Bynum, But Timberwolves Still Have Options

The NBA trade rumors continue to swirl around the Minnesota Timberwolves, but it seems as soon as one is brought up, it's shot down just a few hours later. The latest casualty has to do with the rumored offer of Andrew Bynum from the Los Angeles Lakers for the Wolves No. 2 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

The young center with a decent amount of NBA experience probably would have been a good complement to Kevin Love, but alas, it won't happen as Marc Spears reports that the Lakers have no interest in trading either Bynum or Pau Gasol.

Essentially, this isn't surprising. However, it's just the latest in a laundry list of debunked rumors regarding Timberwolves trade rumors along with the Roy Hibbert deal, the Andrew Bogut deal as well as their interest in the aforementioned Gasol and JaVale McGee.

There are still options left for David Kahn if he'd like to trade out of the top spot, however, according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Among them are Marcin Gortat and the thirteenth pick from the Phoenix Suns, Andris Biedrins and the eleventh pick from the Golden State Warriors and maybe even Greg Oden and the 21st overall pick from the Portland Trail Blazers.

None of those selections are all that tempting, but if Oden's ever able to get healthy, it is intriguing to think about.
