View Full Version : Jamison back to Golden State?

02-24-2011, 03:45 PM

The Cleveland Cavaliers are contemplating another major trade, this time to send Antawn Jamison back to the team where he began his career.

Sources close to the talks told ESPN.com that the Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors have been discussing trade scenarios Thursday that would send Jamison to Oakland.

One source briefed on the talks said the discussions are ongoing but that no trade agreement has yet been reached.

It was not immediately clear who Golden State would be willing to part with if the teams indeed came up with a workable trade framework before Thursday’s 3 p.m. trade deadline.

A deal to reacquire Jamison would work under the salary cap involving the expiring deal of Troy Murphy, whom Golden State acquired only Wednesday from New Jersey, as well as veteran center Andris Biedrins.

If such a deal featured Murphy going to Cleveland for Jamison, it’s believed that the Cavaliers would then buy out Murphy before next Tuesday’s deadline to keep the veteran power forward eligible to appear in the playoffs with another team.

DO IT CAVS...get a 2012 first rounder in the deal!

I don't know why GS wants Jamison. I would think he has more value on a contender.

The warriors can't trade a first round pick for the next 3 years, so good luck with that.

Warriors want to make playoffs, Jamison could be great coming off the bench or taking one of the forward spots and D.Wright coming off the bench. Warriors need depth, Jamison could provide it.

The Cavs should jump all over this if they can get any sort of pick or prospect in the deal along with Murphy. I don't understand the rationale for the Warriors, but maybe they want Jamison's contract to work with next year?
