Cavs trade Ilgauskas for Jamison and then get both of them? Not fair

April 8, 2010

I think it’s totally unfair that after the Cleveland Cavaliers traded Zydrunas Ilgauskas to the Washington Wizards for Antawn Jamison, the Cavs get both players.  The 7-foot Ilgauskas, whose name means “long” in Lithuanian, was bought out by the Wizards and then resigned with the Cavs.  It’s not right – the rich get richer.  So the Cavs trade a two-time all-star, Big Z, for another two-time all-star, Antawn Jamison, and then get Z back.  If the Cavs win it all I don’t think it will be an exaggeration to say the title will be tainted.

The Washington Wizards completed their team makeover Wednesday by trading two-time all-star Antawn Jamison to the Cleveland Cavaliers for center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, the rights to Slovenian forward Emir Preldzic and a first-round draft selection from Cleveland.

The Wizards also receive forward Al Thornton from the Los Angeles Clippers, while forward Drew Gooden, acquired last week from the Dallas Mavericks in a seven-player trade, goes from Washington to L.A. The Cavs also get point guard Sebastian Telfair from the Clippers.
