Nice pickup. He was really nice in the 08 playoffs. If he plays similar to before the injury, he could be a nice bench player. I really like the moves the Cavs have made.

Huge steal, if he comes back healthy next season. Just has a knack for getting boards around the basket.

GOD DAMNIT! This really pisses me off!

I really don't want Powe to leave, especially to another contender. I knew it'd happen, but I don't want it to. Powe is an awesome guy, and could be really good if he avoids more injuries.

He was insane when KG first went down this spring. Also, he was the C's priority to bring back before he went down and Baby came through in the playoffs.

Good pickup by Cavs if he can come back and be close to the player he was for the second half of the season and especially the postseason. If he is the Powe of old might just give the Cavs enough to win it all. Shaq,AV,Z and Powe as the main Bigs along with the occasionaly LBJ to let Moon or Parker get more minutes gives the Cavs a deep and diversified lineup. So the Cavs added Shaq,Parker,Moon,Powe and lost Pavs and Big Ben and probably Wally and Smith who barely played in Orlando Series anyway. From where I stand a 66 win team looks even better and deeper. They add 4 players assuming Powe comes back this year that are all better players to the 4 rotation players lost.

Great pickup for the Cavs IF a) this unconfirmed report is true b) Powe comes back in optimal playing condition around winter time, ready for a playoff push.

A 2-year deal ? Team option for the 2nd year ? Minimum salary ? How the hell did Ferry do that ? :bowdown:

Great Acquisition by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Steal of a pickup for the Cavs. Powe's a great player.

This past offseason, they got Parker, Moon, Shaq and now Powe...pretty solid.

Brian Windhorst is a reliable source ...

But first, the Cavs doctors will have to check out Powe's knee. If they see nothing wrong with it, he's a Cav.

Isn't Powe a RFA?

The Celtics declined to make him a qualifying offer because of his knee.

Leon Powe will likely play more than 24 minutes per game if he's healthy.

Love to see Powe destroy the "Matador Defender" Rashoids Lewis.
