All I can say is WOW! ESPN The Magazine‘s Chris Broussard is reporting that (according to two sources with knowledge of the discussions) the Cavs and Suns are nearing an agreement on a trade that would send Shaquille O’Neal to Cleveland in exchange for Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic. As I said, all I can say is WOW!
First Kobe, then D-Wade now LeBron. That’s just crazy! Those are arguably the three best players in the NBA, and Shaq has won rings for two of them (and perhaps en route to a third).
According to the sources, the deal is more than “90 percent” complete and is merely awaiting final approval from the team’s owners, so we’ll be sure to keep you updated as more information comes along.
When this rumor first surfaced around the trade deadline, it was the same Wallace and Pavlovic swap that was being discussed. Looks like they finally made it happen.
What are your thoughts on this deal?
