The Cleveland Cavaliers have reported that they have offered to Corey Magette their full MLE.

If Magette signs with the Cavaliers we still have room for Vince Carter since we will still be under the cap(I think)

Vince Carter
Keith Van Horn

for:

Wally Szczerbiak
Sasha Pavlovic
2nd Rounder

Roster:

Delonte West/Boobie/Damon
Corey Magette/Devin Brown/LeBron
Vince Carter/LeBron
LeBron James/Joe Smith/Ben Wallace
Zydrunas Ilgauskas/Ben Wallace

Can you say championship? Cmon Ferry its all up to you.
Also cmon Magette its all up to you.

It would be a dream off-season if we could get Maggette. It would very strange if we got Carter after though. I would think maybe a All-star PF not exactly we could do that but this would be my dream off-season:

Cavs trade:
Szczerbiak
1st round pick

For:

Artest



and


Cavs trade:
Anderson Varejao
Delonte West

for:

Raymond Felton

Lineup:
Felton/Gibson
Maggette
LeBron
Artest/Smith/ Hickson
Z/ Wallace/ Smith

You cant put lbj as PF. And why would we trade for carter if we will have Magette? If the cavs get Magette they just have to hold on to wally for a while and trade him in mid december or jan and maybe gat a potential PG or PF all-star.

Maggette is on the verge of signing with the SA Spurs says ESPN.

Vince Carter time.

BTW: LMAO thats the only place I COULD put LeBron.

Actually if we did land Magette we wouldn't need Carter we would need Monte Ellis.

Wally
Gibson
Varajao
Cash
Future Draft pick(if needed)

Ellis
Magette
LeBron
Wallace
Z
= MONEY

:pity::pity: too bad.

Yes I know, but I dont want lebron to spend his energy guarding the bigs (howard, KG, etc.) so I'd rather have him as SF. I want that assignment on Big Ben. I hope maggette will reconsider the cavs.:D

How about taking a chance on Shaun Livingston...A small one year contract with an option year. If he can play, great! If not your not really out anything.

I am really pulling for Maggette, he would be a steal at the MLE !!!

He dislocated his knee, have you seen the video? it was pretty horrible,:speechless: and he was in a pretty bad shape. I know with that, his knee will never be the same again. I was thinking his career was over with that type of injury. But as you said the cavs will not give up a lot or anything at all, but I think his priority right now is to get healthy. I want ferry to focus on other potential trades rather than livingston. :D

the dream off season in my eyes would have to be somehow getting ron artest away from Sac town.....i think they would do it for Wallys expiring contract and a first round pick...would free them up financially in the near future to sign somebody who WANTS to be there....then the second thing i could like to see the cavaliers work with the ATLANTA HAWKS they have an over abundant of youth and athleticism with all the early first round picks they have had over the years.....i would like to see the cavs then trade varejous flopping ways along with west when we resign him to get bibby and josh childress....we need a true point guard to run the show and somebody who can get lebron some easy shots.......childress is long and athletic he could be as good as tayshaun prince with the right players around him....and then if you had ron artest to take away the other teams best player on the defence of end you would really see what lebron can do with his offence of game because he wouldnt have to exurt himself so drasticly on the Defensive end.......that would be my dream off season and ide love too see this line up

Bibby/gibson
Childress/Sasha/lebron
Lebron/artest
Artest/wallace/hickson/kaun/jackson
Biz Z/Smith

Lemme know what yall think:clap:

Quick thing; everyone stop putting Kaun on the roster. It isn't going to happen. He is playing professionally in Russia and may NEVER see a Cavs uniform. He certainly will not be on the roster this year.

Nobody's putting Sasha Kaun on their roster.... Its Sasha Pavlovic.

Don't you think every team in the NBA is hoping to do that?

It won't be easy convincing him to come to the cold weather of Cleveland & play for the minimum & an option.

I don't understand? Sasha Kaun playing in Russia right? Never mind I just got it. Well one of the guys who put their dream off-season put him on their roster.. I doubt Livingston will play for Cleveland not only is he a risk I don't think he would improve us enough to go after him because its risky.

Thanks you, Chief. The guy who posted directly above my previous post had him on his roster. I guess that one is a nobody to some people.

I had to go back and watch the video again(Shaun Livingston)...I forgot how nasty that was! I'd still give him a shot.

This would be my hit list if I was Ferry:

1. Ron Artest
2. Corey Maggette
3. Shawn Marion (probably no chance here, we dont have anything Miami wants)
4. James Posey
5. Monta Ellis
6. Raymond Felton
7. Mickael Pietrus
8. Vince Carter (only if your out of other choices, too much money for someone past their prime)

James Posey over Monta Ellis thats interesting.

If I were to make a list in what I think Ferry should do from highest priority to lowest:
1. Monta Ellis (young can play his whole career with LeBron)
2. Ron Artest ( still can play as a 5 tool player very well)
3. Corey Maggette ( good at scoring without help )
4. Vince Carter ( If the deal is right take him still has the ability to get to the baseket can finish very well.)
5. Andrei Kirlenko ( very long and athletic can play positions 2 through 5)
6. Raymond Felton (true PG only thing going against him is his shooting percentages)
7. James Posey ( good role player tough defender )
8. Pietrus (low on my list but is athletic and we do have a need for athleticism)
9. James Jones ( good shooter could have a use for him if Wally is traded)

In Retrospect i would switch those two...I was originally thinking Posey because it wouldnt cost us anything.These should really be seperated into two columns...Trades and FA's.

I am pretty low on Vince Carter, but then i look strictly at his numbers and its hard to argue:
