Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant unexpectedly left the Las Vegas NBA summer camp on Wednesday to return to Cleveland as the Lakers and Cavs reportedly work on a trade that will send Dwight Howard to Los Angeles and Andrew Bynum to Cleveland, according to Ric Bucher of ESPN.com:

Cavaliers GM Chris Grant was in Las Vegas watching summer-league action but made an unplanned return to Cleveland, sources say, and is not expected to return. In the frenzy of anticipating if, when and where Howard might be dealt, such otherwise innocuous events have been enough to inspire massive speculation that a deal is near.

In exchange, the Orlando Magic would receive the Cavs' Brazilian forward Anderson Varejao and a package of draft picks.

But a snag in the trade is Bynum's reluctance to commit long-term to Cleveland or Orlando. The Lakers, however, said they are still hoping to trade for Howard even without a long-term commitment from him.
