Default Would Gerald Wallace be a good fit in Cleveland?

He is going to be a free agent and maybe the Cavs could go after him. He is an excellent defender, very athletic, and knows his limatations. He doesnt put up dumb shot but is still good for a 25-30 point outburst every once and a while. He could be the Cavs shut down defender.

For the millionth time, unless they make a trade, the Cavs have NO MONEY FOR FREE AGENTS.

They've got Z, Snow, Marshall, Gooden, Hughes, and Jones all locked into big contracts that don't expire for 2 or more years.

Maybe Gallas is a good def. but i think Cavs need a player more helpful in offense and defence...so i think Wallace is not the best choice

i'd see adding wallace as being not that different from larry hughes...he's better than hughes, a great defender, and a sort of athletic guy with a nice all around game, but no real talent for shooting or creating his own shot. plus he plays the same position as lebron.

To the Cavs, Wallace would be another Larry Hughes or a poor man's LBJ. He would get very limited bench minutes. Why go to Cleveland and be a bench warmer when he can star in Charlotte? It's not that he's a bad player, it's just that Cleveland isn't really a good fit for him because they already have players like him.

True he would judt be another Larry Hughes but who do you think would be a good sidekick for Lebron?

I think Chauncey would be a good combo with him too bad the Cavs cant pick him up in free agency.

dont mind em he has nothing to talk about in the bobcats forum

JK man

But yeah obviously the larry hughes thing got too hyped up, and i was one of those people who thought it would be a sick duo but larry hughes isnt doing his part.

chauncey would be sweet yeah
How about someone too like..
Iguadola
Baron Davis
Iverson ( screw everyone about they'd fight over getting shots, i think it would work fine)
Tony Parker

Maybe some big men
Timmy duncan
Dwight howard
Bosh
KG

I doubt it, Gerald Wallace and Lebron plays the same position and I doubt if Gerald would play off the bench.
