Default marion to cavs ?

just read that the heat and cavs are talking marion for varejao and szczerbiak


http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_yl...yhoo&type=lgns




what do u guys think ?


personally i'm not sure what to make of it..

for cavs it might make sense ( even chemistrywise )


but for miami ?
the trade might not make us worse, but better ?
just adds up to the jamlog on the 4 and 3; and we loose a great defender...

Not really, we don't have a jamlog since Dorrell & Jones are injured... Wally is the type of guy who can spread the floor for us until Jones comes back. We really need help with how inconsistent of shooters Cook, Quinn & Diawara are. Varejao comes in at starting C, displacing Joel to the bench.

This is not ideal, but not a terrible trade either. It gives us a slightly more balanced team, and doesn't hurt our cap space in 2010 at all.

I'd still like Kaman. Varejao is okay, but he's not the defensive & rebounding low post anchor that would allow Beasley to move back into the starting lineup.

Not sure why Miami would want Szczerbiak but Varejao does add a little height. Is he not more of a pf though? I do not see him a starting center. With both Haslem and Beasley...

...or is he a better rebounder and shot-blocker than I give him credit for?

ah not really, poor man's version of haslem .. ;) allthough taller ( 6-11 )

but he does play the 4 ( but ok, with his size he'd be a center on the heat ;) )


anyways, since everybody declined ( cavs as well as heat ) this one seems to be dead....

It's not that anyone declined, it's that this was all bull. neither team ever talked about it. Just more rumors.

sry man, guess my english isn't what it used to be.. ;)

i didnt mean to say decline, rather than that both teams said there was nothing to the rumor...( feel free to let me know what the right choice of word would have been.. ;) )
