    Default Big Z Expects Buyout this Week. NBA Denies Resign w/Cavs...

    Man, Donnie should jump out of his seat to sign him right now for the remainder of the season.

    Not to mention the fact that Bron loves Z...

    it would be nice and it can move Dlee to pf, but he might be a homer.

    True we need a big man and Big Z is a TALL dude.

    We can FINALLY put D Lee at PF and have Z start at Center....

    Sergio
    Tmac
    Chandler
    Lee
    Big Z

    NOT BAD

    Although I would love to get him for as cheap as we would get him, what would be the point?

    I mean if we were still in the playoff hunt, then why not? But how does this do anything for us?

    Plus if I were Z I would join a team like the Celtics who has a chance at winning a title this year

    Exactly. Why the hell would he sign with a 19 win team when he could sign with a team with even an outside shot at a ring?

    This is great news! Cleveland needs a back up center like Big Z. Without Z to back up Shaq maybe the Magic or Hawks can get into the finals except Cleveland! The Hawks and Z have mutual interest, so let's hope he signs there. It's probabaly either Atlanta or Dallas for him. We all need to root for Cleveland to lose.

    Cleveland are gonna regret this trade. Z's passing and jumper from 15 feet added a dynamic to their team. And it's been commented on numerous times that he's a leader and an inspiration.

    Jamison is good, but his unorthodox low post game is a ZBO-reminiscent black hole that eliminates the perimeter from the offense. It's another signing of a player that just doesn't add much to a one man show.

    Check out ALL these massive salaries and tell me who the **** does anything monumental for the team other than The King?

    Mo Williams deserves a 3rd of that salary even when he's healthy. Delonte West is productive but has that Wilson Chandler "where am I" thing going on and will not amount or add in any way to championship success in Cleveland.

    Anderson Verajao is a ****ing golly wog who at that salary gets 8 points and 8 boards a game and people believe David lee is gonna sign for $9m in 2010. Bogus.

    From Jamario Moon's name down, the supporting cast don't even warrant mentioning. Are Cleveland really doing that much to keep the King? They just lost a very important piece in Ilgauskas.

    Danny Ferry at his best

    Why would we need an immobile center who is in the twilight of his career at this point?

    Cavaliers have to get him back, he's been there since 1996 and it would be terrible story to not have big Z in Cleveland if they actually win the championship this year.

    I would like to see it happen but I just don't see him joining a team with 19 wins. He is going to try and sign on with a contender, I guess if no contending team wanted him than NY would be a possibility... i'm sure he ends up with a contender. The knicks definitely could use help at center though, i'm surprised Donnie hasn't been able to add an inside presence who can rebound/block some shots in the last few years.. you would think someone would be available somewhere. I would like to see how David Lee would do as a starting PF in the league.

    Why would we want the slowest player in the league when we're trying to play an up-tempo offense?
