Shaquille O'Neal Traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers

In late breaking news tonight, it appears that the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Phoenix Suns have agreed to the first blockbuster deal of the offseason.

Shaquille O'Neal will be sent to the Cavs with Sasha Pavlovic and Ben Wallace heading off to the Suns.  This is a complete salary clearing deal for the Suns who will save upwards of $10 million while the Cavs hope that Shaq will be the difference down the stretch run next season.

My thoughts?  I really think the big man is too old to make a difference at this point.  Although, the Cavs play that slow down style that will benefit an aging beast while the Suns uptempo style was never meant for a 17 year veteran and future hall of famer.

Look out Orlando!

(Obviously this deal is awaiting league approval and should be finalized tomorrow.)

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
