Orenthal wrote:Said the deal is an obvious steal for the Cavaliers. Z being brought back making the deal JJ for Amare. Has no concerns of a personal problem between Shaq and Amare, just the fact they did not mesh well in PHO. Will Amare "fit in" like Shaq has and be a piece of a championship team, or will he be more concerned about getting his looks and a max deal. Windy sees the deal as high risk/high reward due to that concern. He likes Jamo better for this season, but understands that if Amare buys in it is by far a better talent deal for the Cavaliers.Cavaliers do not want to trade JJ for a non all star that has more money left on thier deal. Amare continues the flexibility that Ferry craves and is an all star...

Amare is the #2 option on this team; I guess maybe because it is a midseason acq he might not, but his skills on the offensive end are EASY to fit in. Not exactly hard to get him his points.

When KNR uploads the interview, I ask that you kindly listen to it sans your Windhorst is a pessimist viatrol and hear what he said. Not trying to be an asshole, but getting the facts straight is important.

Eff even the entire Boston Globe sports section.Windy shoots straight and tries to not lean one way or another. Anyone that calls him negative is just pissed he isn't a pom pom pushing fan, like someone that states openly today LBJ IS RESIGNING WE KNOT THIS DAMNIT! Fans want to hear what they want to hear and Windy tries to only spread the truth. Pom Pom pushers cannot handle it at times.That is straight truth.

e0y2e3 wrote:Mo Williams will never, ever, in a million years be the second option ahead of STAT unless he is enfuego and is just getting hot shooters touches.Mo is a #3 or #4 ideally on a team and this lets him be that. The real essentials here would be LBJ continuing his 10+ dime a game nights, as once Mo went down and LBJ went into mad distribution mode JJ started getting more and more open touches.That said it is inarguable that there are a lot more people to get touches here then in Phoenix and Nash is not really a first option. He's a pure PG looking to dish then shoot. You know this aoxo.

Anglefan wrote:He basically just whined for 20 minutes about how he's not sure if it's a good move. When asked to put a percentage on the likelihood, he just said he spoke to five people yesterday who all said it was going to get done, but he doesn't know. Windy doesn't seem to grasp the fact that this is the Cavs last chance to get an all star caliber player. After Thursday, that's it. We lose our expirings and are already way over the cap for the foreseeable future. So him having admitted that Amare is a better long term solution than Jamison, I don't see why he wouldn't say this is the best move the Cavs can make.

If you're really that upset over one sentence that I typed about my opinion about what a beat reporter's perception is, I am SO sorry. There's no reason I should be putting people through that kind of stress.

WojYahooNBA If Cavs do Amar'e deal, it would surprise many GMs. Unlike Jamison or Murphy, this would be dramatic change for Cavs. Most expected subtle. 11 minutes ago from web
WojYahooNBA Along those lines, many execs believe Cavs are posturing with Amar'e to get asking prices lowered for Jamison and Murphy. High-stakes poker. 5 minutes ago from web
WojYahooNBA You have to admire this about Cavs organization: Unlike most of NBA, they're always going for it. They spare no expense to win. 17 minutes ago from web

It will make teams think twice before gambling. What if Z couldn't re-sign with CLE and wound up in, say, BOS backing up Perkins? 3 minutes ago from web If Z gets dealt (anywhere) and returns to Cavs in 30-days, NBA MUST change that rule. No player allowed to return to same team after trade 4 minutes ago from web My point on the 'system' is that the Cavs have played with two natural bigs all season. In PHX, it was one and a bunch of shooters. 12 minutes ago from web I still wouldn't be surprised to see Cavs do a 180 and take another run at Jamison. This could be Ferry trying to scare Wizards price down 16 minutes ago from web RT @Hoopdata: @chrismannixsi Phoenix led the league in OffEff last season. Amare-Shaq offensively worked for them. It worked incredibly ... 18 minutes ago from web Sometimes when you play w/a top defender and a coach who requires D, your own D gets better. May not be Russell, but STAT could get better 18 minutes ago from web Warns though, that STAT won't get a lot of transition buckets. Points out that CLE's running game are one-man breaks with LBJ and Mo-Will. 22 minutes ago from web STAT also gives Cavs option to go LBJ at 4, STAT at 5 against Orlando and get out on shooters and D up Howard on perimeter 23 minutes ago from web Scout also likes STAT's mid-range game. Doesn't have Jamison's range but effective from 15 feet. 24 minutes ago from web Scout told me today he thinks STAT-Shaq can work because Cleveland O designed for 2 bigs, unlike PHX which puts premium on perimeter players 25 minutes ago from web Unlikely STAT commits to Cleveland without knowing LeBron would be a Cav. Otherwise, why leave a cushy situation like Phoenix? 27 minutes ago from web IF Amare deal goes down-one trusted NBA source I talked to isn't so sure it will-AND he signs long term with the CLE, most believe LBJ stays 27 minutes ago from web

WAS could be $12m+ under cap w/deal

I wouldnt mind a Wally S&T or Z straight up being bought out, but I would give no talent up for Murphy. I'd rather see him stand pat and take the chance on JJ continuing to develop.
