OK, but hes not a good man defender.

I watched him a few times last season and he couldn't guard Randy Foye at all, Foye at him up last season.

He guarded Mayo well though when I watched, not sure of the actual stats though.

and what do you mean we didnt want to re-sign him? mostly non-cavs fans didnt want him. any cavs fan can tell you how important he is to this team, and news flash, HE ISNT WORTH A BIG CONTRACT so hell yea i wanted to sign him for cheap.

Sorry, not most cav fans - this board. It was basically, F*** HIM, let him walk. Sign and trade him for a guard, etc. The Varajeo thread before was Mikael saying people were nuts and everyone else saying Varajeo was this overrated piece os ****. No exaggeration.

The Cavaliers are closing in on signing Anthony Parker to a two-year deal, just under $6 million, according to a Tweet from Ric Bucher.

He's just a replacement for Sasha Pavlovic and/or Wally Sczerbiak.

I don't understand why some Cavs fans want to make this a bigger deal than it really is. His defense is okay, better than both of those two, but nothing special.

Overall it was just a replacement, this isn't some extensive upgrade like some people are trying to play it up to be.

S&T-ing him for a guard wouldve been a good move too. but i only thought that was a good idea becuase i didnt think he'd want to come off of the bench, i never didnt want him back though.

Parker will probably not have an important contribution to the team throughout the regular season, but the Cavs could find him useful come playoff time, specially against guys like Kobe and Carter, who they could easily face. I don't think they want to have Lebron guarding those guys the whole game, and they don't have many more options.

Those players were bad pickups because they were terrified of their own shadows. Parker is not. They had the tools to succeed, just couldn't. Did you see Wally against Orlando?

Uh, Parker was being offered $7 million per in Europe, I kinda think the Cavs are spending their entire MLE for two years, just under $12 million total.

Hey, if I'm wrong, Parker must feel financially secure and want to stay in North America.
