Not watched the Clips much this year but I liked Thornton's game.The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached agreement on a six-player, three-team trade that lands them former All-Star forward Antawn Jamison(notes), league sources with knowledge of the talks told Yahoo! Sports.
The Cavaliers are sending center Zydrunas Ilgauskas,(notes) a first-round pick and the draft rights to Emil Preldzic to the Wizards. The Wizards also will receive Brian Skinner(notes) and Al Thornton(notes) from the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavaliers will get point guard Sebastian Telfair(notes) from the Clippers. The Wizards will send Drew Gooden(notes) to the Clippers.
The Clippers will buy out Gooden, a league source said.
The Cavaliers’ decision to acquire Jamison came a day after talks between the teams intensified. Cleveland was waiting on the Phoenix Suns to respond to their offer for Amar’e Stoudemire.
The Washington Post first reported the Wizards had agreed to send Jamison to the Cavaliers.
Clips cleaning house, taking most possessions out of the house and giving them away, paying some people to take them
They must definately want to be players in the free agent market, maybe they think they can attract some stars
The Cavs have just given Lebron a big reason to stay after this season, as Jamison and Mo Williams are very good star players around him, throw in Shaq if he stays. Interesting to see where and how Jamison fits in there, as he won't likely score anywhere near as much as he did in the Wiz.
Gooden might well resign with the Mavs, but I reckon there's an outside chance he signs back with the Spurs and they could use him
