That's right, Luke Jackson was traded to the Boston Celtics for Dwayne Jones and a 2.1 million trade exception (according to Kenny Roda and WKNR 850).
Jones is a 250lb 6-11, defensive center who led the NBDL in rebounding last season. From what I've heard is that he's a good shot blocker and rebounder but he is pretty raw on offense.
As far as Jackson goes, I can't say I'll really miss the guy. He's been hurt for most of his time in Cleveland and he's never really gotten into the flow. You can't blame the kid, he's a natural small forward on a team where the starting small forward never sits for more than 30 seconds. Plus, the writing was on the wall when GM Danny Ferry drafted 2 guards in this past June's draft.
Though, who knows how much playing time he'll get with Boston, I mean, he goes from sitting behind LeBron James to sitting behind Paul Pierce. But hey, at least Boston can add another white guy to their roster. That's always fun.
As for the Cavaliers, I don't think they're done dealing. With their glut of guards, I wouldn't be surprised if one of the veteran got dealt. Eric Snow, Damon Jones, Sasha Pavlovic and a healthy Ira Newble could all be trade canidates. Plus, if the Cavs think that the additions of Dwyane Jones and Scot Pollard could make up for his production, I wouldn't be totally shocked to see Anderson Varejao dangled out there again.
Now, I'm not saying I'm totally for this (if you want to trade for a good PG however, you gotta offer something), but one of the veteran guards + Varejao + 2.1 million trade excpetion (from Boston) could net the Cavs a pretty decent starting point guard.
Anways, the Cavs have relieved their guard glut by releasing Eddie Basden and trading Luke Jackson. Personally, I doubt these are the last moves we'll see.
