Rasheed to the Cavs?

by J. Gamble

My sources say that Rasheed Wallace and the Cavs are beginning talks on a two-year deal worth about $10 million per for the services of the former Piston. The move and negotiations were inspired by Dwight Howard’s dominant performance over Cleveland’s big men in the Eastern Conference Finals.  And Wallace will be brought in for that very purpose, to neutralize Dwight Howard next season and help the Cavs get over the hump.

This supports what we previously reported about what it will take for Sheed to come back next year.

If this signing falls through, I’m hearing that Cleveland may do a sign and trade with the Clippers for Zach Randolph, which certainly makes sense for the Clippers since they are taking Blake Griffin No. 1 overall.

    Can’t see it happening; Sheed is too expensive. First of all: it’s not 100% sure if Ben Wallace will retire. If Ben stays, the Cavs have a problem since he makes 14 mil next season. They can’t pay Sheed. Even if Ben Wallace does retire, Sheed is asking too much. Sure, they can get him and pay luxury tax, but let’s not forget that the Cavs have no bench, so they need money for that too. I wouldn’t do it if I was Danny Ferry.
