If that's true. Cleveland is going to have a huge problem at the C next year. Shaq is close to retirement, and with Z going in that direct as well, they are going to be pretty much screwed.

Wouldn't surprise me at all, especially if LeBron leaves (and if he decides before LeBron, then I wouldn't be surprised if this helps push James to leave)

But if he retires and shaq retires or leaves, doesnt tht mean the cavs will have alot more cap room?

yep, some people seem to forget they might actually be pretty big 2010 players, and if they can attract the right FA that might help James decide to stay..

Both are expiring contracts, only thing his would do is allow them not to retain their bird rights. With the cap hold on LeBron, they would still be over $45 million, leaving them 10 million to sign 1 player to replace those 2. And that's assuming they relinquish their bird rights to both Shaq and Z, who may not have their minds made up by then.

Cavs have about 31 million Owed to the roster come 2010, that's excluding LeBron who has his player option of 17 million. Together that makes it 48 million.
If the CAP is believed to be around 50-54 million they won't have much to make a move for a legit Center.

I've never been a big fan of Big Z, but good luck to him anyway...

I wouldn't be surprised he's pretty old and after all those injuries he's had to deal with. If LeBron leaves, he's gone but he prolly will be anyway.
