Gerald Wallace to Cleveland?

Quote:
The Charlotte Bobcats have discussed a trade to send forward Gerald Wallace(notes) to the Cleveland Cavaliers, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

The Cavaliers would use their trade exception to acquire Wallace, but have also pushed for a lottery-protected first-round pick for them to take on the two years and $22 million left on Wallace’s contract through the 2012-13 season, the source said.

Interesting that Cleveland is asking for a lotto-protected pick for taking on that salary....

Why would they do this when they just started winning?

If Wallace is up for grabs we should be looking at acquiring him.

I'm shocked that CHA is willing to give him up TBH.

Question: Would you move our #1 pick and TPE for him? If you won't, let's move on.

I thought Wallace didn't want to play in Toronto?

Which also makes me wonder why the fuck he'd want to play in Cleveland.

Lol... Jordan is high is he thinks that's what he's getting.

I'd give up our MIA pick, our TPE and Weems or something though.

I'd agree. Though I'd consider giving the first rounder and keeping the Miami pick... maybe asking for a second rounder back. Weems is obvious to go back, Jordan loves cheap players.

Wallace at 10M per is great value.... but he's not going for expirings alone.

They jump at that. All 30 GMs would jump at that offer.

true, our pick non-protected + Evans (to not go into lux) + TPE. I'd do it this second.

Wallace fits to play with Bargs, good defender and rebounder is what we need at SF. And an all-star at that

Maybe Weems and Bargs for G. Wall.

C - Dorsey
PF - Davis
SF - Wallace
SG - DD
PG - Jose

Bench - Barbs, Kleiza, Amir, Wright, Bayless, Lottery pick.

Not criticizing your choice, but that frontcourt would be beaten down nightly.... Amir and Ed would each need back surgery in a year... lol

Why give up Bargnani? Getting Wallace means we can finally stop suffering at defensive end with Bargs

Besides Cleveland wants to get him near for free.

do you realize how putrid that squad's offense would be? oh my god. dorsey is not an improvement on defense from bargnani, he really isn't. helpside, man, whatever, no better. Bargnani is more valuable to this team than gerald wallace would be. like moremilk said, this team needs to be peaking in 3-4 years. Bargnani will be in the middle of his prime at that point, and gerald wallace will be pooping dust. i know you don't like Bargnani but that's a bad trade

gotta agree that is one butt ugly lineup....no thanks. Plus he'd be a malcontent here. He didn't want to play here 3years ago with Bosh here. Would serve him right to end up in Cleveland.

So, Charlotte is going to give away Wallace? Normally I'd say I'm surprised. However, they let Felton walk and MJ gave away Tyson Chandler to the team offering the best financial relief. Sounds like Charlotte.

Jordan is throwing away Wallace for trash?

I'd love to see BC pick up Wallace, but he doesn't want to play for us.

If he's ok with playing in Cleveland but has a problem with playing here then he's got a screw loose. Unless he has family there or something?
