Jackson Calls Ilgauskas Situation 'Sham', 'Charades'

Phil Jackson called it a "sham.'' He dubbed it "disrespect for the league.'' He called it "charades.''

So, Phil, how do you really feel about Cleveland's recent deal involving forward Antawn Jamison and center Zydrunas Ilgauskas?

With Ilgauskas all but certain to return to the Cavaliers after having his contract bought out earlier this week by Washington, FanHouse asked the Lakers coach after Friday's shootaround his thoughts on the situation.

Cleveland on Feb. 17 had sent Ilgauskas to Washington in a three-team deal, landing Jamison, a two-time All-Star. It now looks as if the Cavaliers will be getting Ilgauskas back after the NBA-required 30-day waiting period, which would place his return around March 20.

"It's something that's going to have to be addressed in the next (collective bargaining agreement),'' Jackson said of the rule in its current form. "It's a sham of sorts to make that kind of trade. You're not really trading a player. You're just trading a money situation. It's a sham, and I think it's a disrespect for the league and the players to be involved in this type of a thing.''

Jackson had expressed disapproval last week about the deal, calling it a "weird situation.'' But these were his strongest comments yet about it.

Jackson said perhaps the rule should be changed to make it a waiting period of multiple months before a player could return to the team that dealt him.

He should know what a charade or sham is, considering the Lakers raped Memphis for Gasol...
