Ryan Hollins is now that much further from NBA action.

Boston apparently liked them in backup roles. As this team needs better bigs, sounds like a solid if not spectacular deal.

Can't hurt at this point. They have to be better than Hollins.

And for a 2nd rounder that would have probably produced a player along the lines of Semih Erden or Luke Harangody, we get to tryout both.

Get the added bonus of looking like racists by having 3 white guys as our favorite pro athletes in town and an old white coach.

I thought Grady was at least mixed race? Man, we need to deal for an effective Oriental and a black dude that can play. Stat.

Put Choo up there. Shit, that takes a mixed race guy down.

Put up Gary Waters god dammit.

^Almost have a CSU class catalogue in terms of every race being represented. Just need an Indian and one of them being a woman, and we're neutered.

Having 3 white guys up there in today's professional sports might go aways in explaining why we can't win.

Essentially, the Cavs gave up Delonte West and a 2nd round pick in 2013 for these guys. Outside of hearing how Delonte did Lebron’s Mom, every time he came into the game.. I would do the trade in a heartbeat. The Euro 7ft that seems to have toughness is a win. Another solid under the radar trade for the Cavs to get younger, better defensively, help the worst rebounding team in the NBA(and maybe major college basketball), and actually have an inside presence. I have thumbs up.

If you can turn what will likely be no better than the 50th pick in the 2013 draft into two role players you're doing well. Not to mention one is 7'0 tall and the other is a white named Luke from Notre Dame who will be a fan favorite like Brian Scalabrine and who fans will ay "Luuuuuuuuke" every time he comes into the game.

Seriously, two guys with size and a year of solid NBA experience for the 50th+ pick a year from now? Gotta do that all day.

Then you better hit on those two lottery picks. Cause role players ain't getting it doen and free agents ain't coming here with snow and state taxes.

Pluto's take:

"Scott was especially excited to add Erden, who should receive significant playing time at center. Erden started seven games for Boston, averaging 6.9 points and 5.1 rebounds in 22 minutes while shooting 67 percent. The Cavs are convinced he can develop into a useful big man over the next few seasons.


It's impossible to know how Grant will draft until we see where the Cavs are picking -- and how they turn out. But his first trades are promising. He sent West to Minnesota for Ramon Sessions, Hollins and a second-rounder. He shipped that 2013 second-rounder to Boston for Erden and Harangody. So the Cavs turned West into Sessions, Hollins, Harangody and Erden. Sessions is emerging as the Cavs' starting point guard of the future."

It's early, but maybe this Grant guy won't work out too badly after all.

Also, Pluto reported that many NBA executives were "stunned" that Gilbert was willing to spend so much money when attendence will surely decline next year. What a difference between the Cavs and Indians ownership in terms of willingness to commit money to improve the product. Although that may be changing with the Tribe considering how much they spent on their draft picks last year.

On the down side, the Cavs weren't able to move Parker or Jamison. And they ended up with Baron Davis.

If Ramon Sessions is the PG of the future, we ain't winning shit.

Backup PG, good value. Starter? Sieve.

Interesting reading from Pluto on the moves we didn't make.

Jamison to Golden State for (essentially) Biedrins.

Also, the trade exception for Rip and a semi-protected 2012 first-rounder. That's the move I wish we could have made. I'm "meh" on Biedrins, so I'm not upset this one didn't go through. His contract isn't very good.

With Jamison now out for 5-7 weeks, guess we'll get to evaluate these bums now rather than later.

Hope I didn't gush with too much optimism.
