From Ohio.com (http://www.ohio.com/sports/cavs/26919019.html)

An NBA executive said the Cavaliers, in a trade expected to be completed later today, finally have acquired a top-level point guard in executing a six-player, three-team deal.

The Milwaukee Bucks traded point guard Mo Williams to the Cavs in exchange for the expiring contracts of guard Damon Jones and forward Joe Smith. As part of the deal, the Bucks will receive Jones and Oklahoma City point guard Luke Ridnour. Oklahoma City acquires Smith and Bucks forward Desmond Mason. Oklahoma City also will send swingman Adrian Griffin to the Bucks.

Just saw it on SC cant i think this is what it was but not 100 percent but they said it has been done

Bucks Get:
Damon Jones
Luke Ridnour

Cavs Get:
Mo Williams

OKC Gets:
Joe Smith
Desmond Mason

The Bucks are crazy... Ridnour has a bad contract and is nowhere near Mo Will's talent level. Good trade by OKC dumping his contract and acquiring some expirings. Looks like LeBron is going to get some help, don't see enough PT for West and Gibson now though.

I like it all the way around OKC gets the best part, they get like 10 million in expirings and a bad contract out of the way. Milwaukee gets to give Ramon Sessions more PT and potentionally be a very solid starting PG and Luke is a solid backup PG who expires in 2010. Cleveland gets a good PG for very cheap and he is a good scorer

Zach is pretty underrated because he played on some crappy teams in his NBA Career, but i think that he is a much better player than Anderson Varejao, and he is going to be a great Fit for the Cavs, who needs an scoring PF because Z and Big Ben were limited by the Celtics in the 2nd round of the playoffs.

Well, it seems the Cavs have found there second scorer. And they did so without giving up their largest expiring contract. This means we could be looking to make another deal during this season.

I like Mo Williams game in college & was surprised that he slid to the 2nd round.

Now we will see if he can mesh with LeBron & Z, and if he can play alongside Boobie at all.

cavs get a steal, an underrated player in mo williams. it's not enough to bring them to the top of the east, but it does address a really problematic position for them and you have to applaud them for not standing pat.

amazing deal for OKC - they get some much needed depth, an athletic defender in desmond mason as well as joe smith, who is another big body up front to help when Swift and Petro inevitably fail or fall to injury.

The Bucks get hosed. Ridnour is a terrible PG who doesn't play defense.

West played really well ast year in the playoffs.

West is still a F/A.

We might force him to take the 1 yr tender or sign someone else's offer sheet for us to match.

He won't want to return under the 1 yr tender, because his PT is surely to decrease with the acquisition of Mo Williams.

In terms of talent the Cavs got the best end of the trade, easily.

But in terms of salary cap ramifications, they got the worst end of it.

But that's the trade off that we had to make in order to bring in a secondary scorer behind LeBron James.

I agree. He needed to get traded.

Ridnour was great a few years ago, but then lost his confidence. Hopefully this change of scenery can get him going again.

He's always among the league leaders in A/T ratio & steals. Along with Sessions, they should rack up a lot of assists playing alongside those other bigtime scorers.

I think it's funny reading this thread. I can tell from the posts that most here have not actually seen Mo Williams play (not that I blame them.)

Sure, he can score, but he is not a huge threat that is going to free up LeBron a whole lot. On a real team he'd probably be scoring 12-14 points per game, the Bucks were just so terrible that he was throwing up lots of garbage shots.

And as far as being a real point guard goes, he's about as shoot-first as you can get.

We really are weak at SG.

So the Cavs may plan to re sign West as the PG & play Williams for stretches at SG. 12-14 ppg is more than any PG or SG averaged on our team last season, so that would be a welcome addition. I think he'll probably average around 15 ppg for the Cavs. He should get a lot of open 3 pointers.

Just when I thought the Bucks would be back in the playoffs, they pull off a stunt like this. Mo and Mason for Ridnour, Jones, and Griffin. They gave up the two best players in the trade for garbage. I guess they are trying to cut salary after acquiring Jefferson and giving Bogut a big extension. They must think Sessions is ready to be a starter...

IndiansFan337
08-13-2008, 04:28 PM
They must think Sessions is ready to be a starter...

Or Ridnour is a better fit with their current team than Williams?

News flash: The Bucks weren't a good team last season. Simply adding Jefferson wasn't going to dramatically alter things. Switching up PG's might not have been the worst idea to mix things up.

rzrk12
08-13-2008, 04:28 PM
I guess some people aren't getting what the Bucks were doing here so I will try to break it down for them.

Mo Williams has a bad, bad, bad, BAD contract that their former idiot GM Larry Harris signed him to. The Bucks just wanted to unload him, while securing a backup PG (Ramon Sessions will start this season as he looks to be a much truer PG than Mo was)

Desmond Mason is basically just a declining swingman who relies on his athleticism for his game. Wanted to dump his 1-year contract as well since he's on the verge of being practically useless and they can use the room to maybe pick up another piece.

It's simply a salary dumping trade that also frees up the starting PG position for Ramon Sessions.

IndiansFan337
08-13-2008, 04:32 PM
It's simply a salary dumping trade that also frees up the starting PG position for Ramon Sessions.

And Smith is a serviceable backup big man. I will miss him much more than Damon Jones.

Also, you could possibly trade one or two of these expiring contracts in a later trade to acquire draft picks from a team looking to cut salary this summer?

yaowowrocket11
08-13-2008, 04:33 PM
I actually really like this deal for every team. Makes sense. Mo can score, and will help Lebron. The Bucks get some solid players, nothing great, but good return for Williams. I like Mason and think he could help the Oklahoma City (Enter Team Name here). Smith is a solid big man off the bench.

The funny thing is that Damon Jones was on first take, talking all good stuff about Lebron!

rzrk12
08-13-2008, 04:35 PM
And another thing people won't understand in this unless they are a Bucks fan is that even with the RJ trade and the "big three" of Mo/Redd/Jefferson we were probably looking, at best, at a 40-42 or 42-40 season where we sneak into the playoffs in the crappy eastern conference.

We're sick of that.

This trade tells me that the Bucks are tired of shoot-first non-defense playing PGs and want to build a legit contender in the long run. I'm glad Mo and his contract are gone and hope Hammond continues down this path. It would be nice for once to have a real playoff team and not a crappy one that sneaks into the first round and gets swept out by the Celtics or Pistons.

How is a chucker?

He shot 48% from the field. and 38% from 3pt.

He played with Redd that guy shoots a ton, I think if he can average 17 with Redd he will average 20 with LeBron. LeBron can make players better while Redd doesn't really help players get better.

The Cavs weren't necessarily desperate for a PG, with LeBron doing most of the facilitating anyway.

What we needed was another player who could create shots for himself and others. We had too many guys who can't create shots for themselves or others (Wallace, Smith, Jones, Wally, Varejao, Gibson).

Z can create for himself, but not others. West was mediocre at doing so, but he attempted to create for himself & others. LeBron was really the only one that could do it. And if someone can't do that to get the jump shooters the ball when they're open then they have no role at all (Wally, Gibson, Jones).

Williams will play off the ball much more often than he did in Milwaukee, with LeBron handling the rock often. Redd didn't have the best ballhandling skills, so Williams was stuck doing most of the ballhandling in Milwaukee.

I guess this isn't quite official yet:


Mo Williams is headed for Cleveland in a three-team trade expected to be announced later tonight, according to NBA sources. Oklahoma City will acquire Desmond Mason from the Bucks and veteran forward Joe Smith from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Oklahoma City will send point guard Luke Ridnour and Adrian Griffin to Milwaukee. To complete the deal, Milwaukee will send point guard Mo Williams to Cleveland. The Cavs are also sending Damon Jones to the Bucks.
Both Smith and Mason have expiring contracts, which will give Oklahoma City more salary cap space next summer. Ridnour's contract comes off the books in two years, whereas Cleveland will owe Williams $43 million over the next five seasons. Contrary to most speculation, Delonte West was not involved in the deal, leaving him in restricted free agency -- and with a much smaller role on the Cavs, should he be re-signed. Williams' stats shouldn't change much, as he'll still look for scoring opportunities while splitting play-making duties with LeBron. Assuming it doesn't fall through in the next couple of hours, of course.

I like the deal for the Bucks. I know some people love mo williams, but I'm just not a fan. Ridnour used to be good, and even if he doesn't pan out for the bucks, he's far less expensive. And who knows, maybe he'll fit with what skiles does and having redd and rj and bogut around him might make him a better player. Either way though the bucks lose Williams contract which is clearly way too big, and the cavs now have 3 pgs. Not that they really lost anything of real value in this deal, but I'm not sold on Mo being the answer to their pg problems.

Cleveland still sucks. Wont win anything. Mo Williams is not what they need.

Williams is what the Cavaliers do need. What you said wasn't thinking logically obviously.

Didn't Williams sign the $52 million offer sheet with Miami & then the Bucks simply matched it? :eyebrow:

Yes, I think you are right. But if that is the case they should have just let him walk instead of overpaying

What were the bucks thinking? That is a bad deal for them. IMO Mo was better than any of their incoming players.

Ever heard of addition by subtraction, Ridnour could end up being the better fit.

Well if they just let him walk they would've gotten nothing in return...
