Title Push

The deal is done, the Cavs have traded for Antawn Jamison:
The Cavaliers have agreed in principle to a 3-team trade with the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers that brings forward Antawn Jamison to Cleveland, sources said Wednesday night.

The Cavaliers are sending Zydrunas Ilgauskas to the Wizards and this year's first-round draft pick to the Clippers as part of the trade. The Cavaliers are expected to receive Clippers point guard Sebastian Telfair as part of the package.

Can't argue with that. Z and a 1st rounder for Jamison. Me likely. Hopefully Z and the Wizards can reach a buy out and Z can return home to the Cavs.

Plus, it looks like the Suns might be stuck with Stoudemire. Good. I hope Danny Ferry called Steve Kerr's bluff (of couse, could we interest you in Wally Szcerbiak? Hasn't been used in months...).

Gotta say, well done to Danny Ferry. They got Jamison without giving up J.J. Hickson, well played sir. Ferry has now turned Damon Jones, Joe Smith, Sasha Pavlovic and (assuming Z gets bought out) a first round pick into Mo Williams, Shaq and Antawn Jamison. Well done.

Mo, Parker, LeBron, Jamison, Shaq.

Amazing work once again by Danny Ferry. I said a month ago that I wanted Jamison more than Amare (of course last week I changed my mind when it was reported Lebron would sign on the dotted line if we got Amare.) But I think this was the best move to be made. A+ trade. Danny Ferry is like a mob boss making a deal. He shows up to make the trade with a shotgun, and gives the would be tradee an ultimatum and walks away with the goods! STEAL!

This is what a willingness to take on salary will do for you. There are always teams looking to dump salary, and once in a while they'll have a player you want.

Unfortunately, this is why the owners are going to be pushing for a hard cap in the next CBA. Too many teams are making purely money-driven trades that are lopsided from a talent standpoint.

But hey, this is what the Yankees and Red Sox have been doing for years. Might as well enjoy the fact that our midmarket basketball team is on the receiving end of these trades.
