Default Would you be shocked if Cavs don't trade Big Z's expiring contract?

Would anybody be shocked?

I think Jamison will be in Cleveland by deadline day.

Not shocked, but surprised. I think they need to make one more move just to solidify things.

Yes and I will be shocked if he is not bought out or retires.

I can not see Big Z ever putting on another teams jersey

If a good deal doesn't come around, I wouldn't be shocked. But Jamison for Z should be something discussed, and if it is and still nothing happens, yes I will be shocked. I think the Cavs won't make the same mistake twice.

Everyone knows what Ferry is offering. Now there trying to find out if they can get a better package, Z will be one of the last trades before the deadline.

Ferry must have a list of players he wants. and in what order i figure it goes.

Amare (not goin to happen but Ferry knows if he can land Amare it would help keep LeBron. Amare, LeBron, Mo, AV, West/Parker is a championship starting 5)

David West. (could happen but I think the hornets will want to dump a couple salaries on the Cavs. Maybe Posey or Mo Pete)

Jamison (as long as he is on the block but is this goin to cost us either JJ or a pick, is that to much for a 30+ player with a big contract)

Troy Murphy. (I really think just big Z and a second rounder plus buy out money would get this done.)

i won't be shocked.

There aren't really that many eligible deals out there that are definite no brainers.

Jamison --> old, bad contract, Wash want more than just Z

West --> probably won't happen as long as NO are in the playoff hunt

Troy Murphy --> inter divisional trades are less likely to happen, plus Troy isn't the caliber of a player that would make a difference that would justify sending over Z.

Amare --> it would be nice, but i'm not living in a fantasy world.

Yes, I'd be shocked.

They MUST trade Z. Assuming they plan to re-sign LeBron, they won't have the cap space to add anyone next summer for more than $4-6M, which is only mid-level money. What chances are there they are able to add a player of similar caliber to Jamison or Murphy for a mid-level similar salary?

David Lee signing for the mid-level? Luis Scola? Al Harrington?.... the answer is no to all of these guys, they will undoubtedly get more. So the only option is to trade Z while you can.

Here, read this NBA Salary Cap FAQ:

It will help you understand how expiring contracts, and cap space works.

Hey, never know. Who'd have thought Artest would take the MLE? When you're an elite team it seems like guys'll accept below market value to win.
