    Cavaliers - they need to do what they can to get Vince, Rasheed or Shaq next season.

    For the Cavaliers, they need to do what they can to get Vince Carter or Shaq or even Rasheed next season.


    Earlier in the year there were rumors that the Cavs would trade Wally and a pick for Vince Carter or Wally and fillers for Shaq.

    Lineup
    PG Mo Williams
    SG Vince Carter
    SF Lebron
    PG Varajeo
    C Big Z


    or


    PG Mo Williams
    SG Delonte West
    SF Lebron
    PG Varajeo
    C Shaq/Big Z

    or



    if Varajeo is opting out then why not get Rasheed Wallace for 2 years.


    PG Mo Williams.
    SG West
    SF Lebron
    PF Rasheed
    C Big Z

    Edit: Updated Rasheed to the scenario.


    Now if the Cavs can get one of them how good would they be for next year? This being of course the Celtics being healthy and Orlando being fully healthy as well?

    Varejao opting out is going to be one of the best things that can happen to that franchise. Guy is full out bad....he puts in the grit, but in the NBA that isnt enough.

    Amare would be a great piece...but problem is Amare thinks he is an elite player like LeBron, Kobe, Dwight, CP3, Wade and those guys.

    well looks like ben might retire leaves somewhat of ahole on defence, and cant trade his contract away if he does retire, maybe sign someone like ben gordan to a mid level and he can provide sum secondary scoring or maybe come off the bench like he is doing in chicago. That would allow lebron and mo to do what they do and when one of them comes off another legit scorer.

    I'm pretty sure gordon wants to get paid so I don't see him taking the MLE
    Miami Heat:......Fill the roster out with some decent signings

    New Orleans Saints: 9-3
    First in NFC South. 3rd seed

    Players considering the Cavs as a long term home will want to make sure LBJ remains there before signing. So outside of a major trade, it'll be very difficult for them to lure anyone there for cheap.

    Whoa, whoa, now. Great win and all props to the Magic, but the Cavaliers haven't been destroyed. Let's be serious now.


    First, the Cavs can go over the cap to re-sign their own players, i.e., LeBron in 2010/2011.
    Second, unlike nearly every other team, the Cavaliers are willing to SPEND money this offseason. This is an advantage not only in FA (for obvious reasons) but in the trade market also, as the financially-strapped teams will be looking to unload large contracts in exchange for little compensation in terms of talent or picks.
    Third, the team isn't horrible as is. They did win 66 games and make it to Game 6 of the ECF. Disappointing overall, I agree, but crazy things happen from year to year.


    It's too bad Boozer is basically a non-option in Cleveland. I'd love to see him here despite his past transgression(s).

    Some FA I think Cleveland should take a good look at:
    Okur
    Artest (I was screaming for him last year -- wonder how things would have turned out with him and no Mo)
    Odom
    Harrington
    Ariza
    Pachulia
    Lee
    Felton
    Maxiell
    Warrick

    If Cleveland could swing one of the top 3-5 or two of the bottom 5ish, they would improve dramatically. Big IF, obviously, but given their willingness to spend, a very plausible IF.

    My guess is that Cleveland may also look at the likes of: Shaq, Carter, Kidd, Bibby, Andre Miller, and 'Sheed. I'm not too crazy on any of these guys, but something is probably better than nothing in the Cavaliers' current situation.

    Not at all lol, unlike the Magic's owner and GM, the Cavs owner doesn't care what it costs to bring a championship to Cleveland. Why would he spend 25 million on a practice facility? Why would we take on Wally and Big Ben's huge contracts last season? Why were we trying to trade for Shaq at the trade deadline? Not trying to start something, but you guys might not be able to keep Turk next season unless you dump salary or by some miracle he takes a pay cut because your GM publicly said he won't go over the cap next season.

    VC should be a good idea, although he's getting pretty old...

    Both are old and on the downside of their careers. Shaq rarely is healthy to complete a full season. I think they would want to get younger rather than older.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls

    LOL if you think Ben Gordon (in a year where there is absolutely no FA's) is going to sign for a mid level then you are high...
