CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the Cavaliers' beloved center, will sign a one-year deal to return to the team this morning, sources told The Plain Dealer, and presumably will be available to play when the team travels to New Orleans for a game Wednesday.


Ilgauskas, the team's all-time leader in games played, rebounds and blocked shots was traded to Washington on Feb. 17 in a deal that brought Antawn Jamison and Sebastian Telfair to the Cavs. He was bought out by the Wizards and became a free agent. Monday was the first day the Cavs could offer him a contract.

Ilgauskas was courted by teams like Dallas and Denver, but instructed his agent, Herb Rudoy, to announce his intentions to return to the Cavs, in part because of the outpouring of support he received from fans upon his departure.

He will be paid about $150,000 for the remainder of the season, the prorated amount of the 10-year veteran's minimum.

The Cavs will have to clear a roster spot to sign Ilgauskas. Likely candidates to be cut include Darnell Jackson and rookie Danny Green, who do not have guaranteed contracts for next season. Telfair has a guaranteed contract and also is hurt, which makes it less likely he'd be cut.

Its funny how often the top superstars in the NBA get help on their team through stupid trades like these. NBA is rigged.

The rule should be, If you are traded, you're not allowed to return to your previous team until next season.

David Stern needs to do something about this in the off-season.

People in here are talking like they are surprised. Ridiculous or not, it's been done in the past, was bound to happen again, and it did.

Nice :up:

Also, if it happened to your team you wouldn't be complaining about how rigged it was, would you? C'mon it's been done in the past by many teams, it's not like they started with LBJ just now.

This isn't the first time it's happened, so let's calm down on the "the league is doing anything to get LeBron a ring". It's a stupid rule that needs to be killed, but you can't kill it mid-season. Also, if you don't get why the Jamison deal was good for Washington, you don't understand the business of the NBA...even if they don't have any players to show for it.

I like the idea of a player having to wait until next season to re-join a team. Good thought to the poster who said it before me. Cavs get virtually Big Z and Jamison for a pick, two former all stars.

still not enough to beat the bulls in the first round .. if the bulls make the playoffs that is of course (and land the 8th seed.. which is what i think will happen). :cheers:

I agree. I know its happened before. So what. Still sucks azz. This trade stinks to high heaven. It stinks,it smells, its garbage. IMO.

I still like Z and if the Cavs win a ring, he deserves it most. Even when the Cavs sucked during the Ricky Davis era he stuck around. A ring would be a nice payoff.

I don't like the Bowen-rule either but if it's legal ya can't stop it. They should change it though.

You're dumb, dude. Flat out dumb. Between the mis-understanding of how the league works you have shown based on this post, and the ridiculous side by side pictures of a teenager and a grown man who has been on a professional workout routine for the better part of a deade as proof of steroid use, I could not be more sure of this.

The way these trades work out is for many reasons, and as ridiculous as they might be, they're all easily discernible if you spend 10 minutes looking into how and why they're done.

Stop making Warriors fans look bad and put some rationale behind your thoughts.
