andrew bynum january 2014Andrew Bynum has been in trade talks ever since news came out that the NBA center was not interested in playing the game of basketball, and that the Cleveland Cavaliers immediately put him on the trade block.

However, for Bynum, it hasn't been the city of Cleveland that was the problem for him. The Cavs have had many problems trying to sign free agents due to their location, but Bynum doesn't blame that for his reason of disinterest, according to his agent.

"Cleveland is not the problem. Cleveland is not a negative connotation," Bynum's agent, David Lee, told the Akron Beacon-Journal. “Andrew has shied away from publicity his entire life. He’s not a guy who needs the limelight. He lives in a simple neighborhood there. He walks his dog and rides his bike to the store. He goes to the movies by himself. Cleveland wasn’t a problem for him."

Bynum will stay in Cleveland until the issue is resolved no later than Tuesday, whether it's trade or being waived, sources say.

“I’m not really sure what happened and that’s what is most troubling,” a source told ESPN. “Nothing I have seen has warranted this, which is why I’m scratching my head."
