And this is a Good thing?
It appears the Cavs are going to get some "help" for Lebron James, if by "help" they mean a big man that's way past his prime and can't score and a there-point threat that was way scarier at Minnesota.
According to ESPN, The Cavs, Sonics and Bulls are in the midst of an 11-player deal that gets ride of Larry Hughes, Drew Gooden, Shannon Brown and Cedric Smith for Ben Wallace, Wally Szczerbiak, Delonte West and Joe Smith.
I believe I had one of those Joe Smith rookie cards back in the day with the basketball texture, really cool. The sad thing - I think that was in about 1995.
Anyway, the Cavs lose two of their top five scoring options with Hughes and Gooden to land a center when they already have a center and a shooter when they already have a shooter (as long as Boobie wasn't kidding with us over All-Star weekend).
I'm almost positive they could have landed Kwame Brown if they would tried just a smidge harder.
