Also, Gooden just signed a nice deal, the Cavs are going to be giving him tons of court time and they are in a playoff/championship mindset. Meanwhile, Randolph has gotten worse each of the last 3 years and is on a crowded team that has nowhere to go this year.
i wouldn't trade ten points and two rebounds for an extra 0.4 blocks. and the Cavs won't give Gooden a bunch of playing time with Varajao and Marshall each sharing time at PF. Randolph is a bum, but the bum was playing hurt last year. he is supposedly fully recovered and should expect at least an 18 and 8 season. Portland isn't all that crowded in the frontcourt. Pryzbilia, Magloire and LaFrentz can't play PF and Aldridge is injured. Sounds like a recipe for a comeback.
