Default Deal For Bibby Could Be Too Costly For Cavs

Doesn't seem like the Cav and Kings will have a deal that would team up LeBron and Bibby together. The Kings are insistent that the Cavs take Kenny Thomas as well and his addition 2 years left on his contract after this season. Problem is, its alot of money and it would wreak havoc on Cleveland's cap space.

If the Sacramento Kings insist on the Cavs taking back Kenny Thomas' contract, that could be a deal-breaker, several league sources indicate.

The 6-foot-7, 245-pound Thomas has two years worth $17.3 million remaining on his contract after this season. The Cavs' salary cap is already screwed up. Taking on Thomas' contract -- in addition to Bibby's $14.5 million next year -- would send it into oblivion.

The Kings would also probably like a first-round pick, too, which the Cavs should keep. They need to add a legitimate talent to this roster, even if it is a rookie.

The Cavs are in win now mode, no? It's not like theyll have any cap room anytime soon anyway.

Bibby+Gibson on the wings= CLE becoming even harder to stop on offence.

Billy King did when he was in Philadelphia. He was part of the Webber trade.
