Smith wasn't a free agent, he was playing with the Thunder. Hope this is true though, Smith's length and shooting ability is just what the Cavs need. Even before Wallace was hurt I still thought they needed a big like Smith to win a title.

that would be great actually, the only thing the cavs are lacking is big men atm, and a drew gooden signing would be good just to get that 12 points 9 rebounds again.

Gives them a inside guy that plays decent defense, and who can knock down the mid-range jumper. Which is what they lack with Varejao (no jumper), Hickson (no jumper), and Wallace (no jumper).

That's the only thing I didn't like about the trade was giving up Joe Smith. He's such a solid utility guy off the bench. Similiar to a Kurt Thomas, or Antonio McDyess, or P.J. Brown. I was happy to get Mo Williams. I've was looking at his contract the previous year to see our chances to get him since he's an 'under-the-radar' type of player. I knew our front court would be thin with talent if Wallace or Z went down. It'll be nice to have him back.

This is great for the Cavs. Good insurance policy incase another big goes down.
