*RUMOUR*

Nice deal for the Cavs if it happens. Will definitely change the Cavs for the better in my opinion. Sucks for us though

another 20 point game last night.
this move would strengthen both our bench and our starting lineup at the same time.

*RUMOUR - Cavs Considering Complex Blockbuster*

- And this isn't the one I already alluded too with the Grizz and Miller & Lowry. Its gonna be interesting to see if this "blockbuster" actually pans out.

Two league sources said the Cavs' front office is mulling over a blockbuster trade ahead of today's trading deadline. It is a complex deal, because for it to make sense, a second complimentary trade would probably need to be accomplished, too.

Another potential hitch could be haggling over a first-round draft pick the Cavs are also looking to acquire.

This potential deal is not part of the Cavs' pursuit of Memphis Grizzlies shooting guard Mike Miller. The Cavs have made offers to the Grizzlies for Miller, but a league source indicated Wednesday that the Grizzlies were leaning toward not trading Miller based on the offers they'd received.

Cavs General Manager Danny Ferry has generally been conservative when making changes to his roster, though he has swung for the fences in making bids for players like Kevin Garnett, Pau Gasol, Jason Kidd and Mike Bibby.

Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday that the Cavs' offer of Ira Newble, Drew Gooden and Shannon Brown for Bibby was turned down by the Sacramento Kings before they sent Bibby to the Atlanta Hawks.

If nothing else, the Cavs are being extremely active as the deadline approaches. Then again, they were last season, but ended up not being able to pull off a trade.

WOW ... that blockbuster I just mentioned about well Aldridge is apparently reporting the deal to involve Cavs, Heat and Grizzlies and also involving Shawn Marion.

Aldridge was told by six GMs during All-Star weekend that the Heat were actively shopping Shawn Marion.

- There's talk about "Big Ben" heading to Cleveland. I ask, why?

- The Wallace rumour to Cleveland is apparently him and Duhon for Hughes according to Ric Bucher from ESPN.

yikes...
why would anyone want wallace?
LOL... to get rid of hughes! hahaha, terrible contract for terrible contract.
looks like cleveland wants wallace to play PF.
makes sence, seeing as how lebron is the only one who gets shots, throw wallace in there, he never wants touches. it'll be all "pass to lebron" all the time.
i wouldnt be surprised if he got 40 shots a game.
fucking cleveland.

I guess Cleveland is so desperate for a PG that in order to get Duhon, they'd have to take back Wallace too. So, that being said I think Duhon is the one the Cavs have their eye on and not necessarily Big Ben. JMO

duhon... pffffttt... that guy is a fake PG.
i never liked the guy, he's a back up for sure.
boobie gibson is better.

you know who'd be a good fit in cleveland for cheap.... earl watson.
they need a passer.
duhon is NOT a passer.

I actually like Duhon. I think he's a decent passer and a pretty good defender.

Watson is not much of a passer or playmaker. IMO he's a slighly more talented Milt Palacio.

Durant, Szczerbiak, Wilcox, Collison, West...

I guess he's better than I gave him credit for, but sometimes guys also put up inflated stats on bad teams.
