“CLEVELAND, Ohio — Thinking outside the box and taking a managed risk, the Cavaliers are close to scoring what could be a key big-man addition to their roster.
Leon Powe On Da Tracks
According to a source, the Cavs have the framework of a contract completed with free agent forward Leon Powe. It could become official as early as Tuesday, when Powe is expected to come to Cleveland to meet with team doctors.
Powe is in the middle of recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee and may not be able to return until the All-Star Break. But the Cavs feel like he’s worth the wait.
The sides have been talking for weeks and were able to agree on a two-year contract, which will protect both sides. Powe will get a chance to rehab with a deal and the Cavs will be protected if he recovers as they apparently believe he will.
The 6-8 three-year veteran averaged 7.7 points and 4.9 rebounds for the Celtics last season. He proved valuable when Kevin Garnett went down with injury and played an important role until he suffered the injury during the playoffs.
The Celtics could have kept Powe’s rights, but they declined to make him a qualifying offer in June because he’s had several injuries to the left ACL. They had hoped to be able to re-sign him when he was healthy, but the Cavs were able to put together a more attractive offer.”
If you are reading this, then you probably realize that you are at the New CavsHistory.com. The rest of the pages will be migrated to this format in the next couple of weeks.
in the meantime, please visit www.cavshistory.com/v2. All the stuff is still there and v2 will remain there for perpetuity because I’m sentimental.
Hi loyal CavsFans,
This weekend the old site (the current one) will be moved to the URL www.cavshistory.com/v2 and there will be a brief site outage. This is to make way for the beta testing of the new site (if you want to be a beta tester email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or msg me a twitter.com/cavshistory).
The current site has been in this format for almost 7 years and it is time for a change. The homepage will be updated to the blog temporarily. Then in the coming weeks, we will slowly be rolling out the new format (lovelingly dubbed CavsHistory 3.0). The new features should make you guys happier (and let bloggers/tweeters link directly to pages). Basically, we are getting all web 2.o when its almost time to get web 3.0
The old format will live on forever at www.cavshistory.com/v2, it won’t be deleted just in case anyone just can’t bear to live without it.
Be patient with us, there will be bugs and hiccups. But I guarantee the new format will be a pleasant experience and will hold up better against the upcoming LeBron/Shaq-led title run as well as the impending LeBron free-agent-to-be craziness.
Whenever Lebron speaks, or doesn’t, it creates some sort media storm. He finally broke his summer silence and spoke about a number topics. The topics include “dunk-gate”, “handshake-gate”, “Shaq-gate” and “future contact and staying in Cleveland-gate. ”
I’m too lazy to really dig and try and find the article (I’m mean I clicked on one link and it wasn’t there, what do you want from me?), plus I’m not sure if its even available. Besides, the genius that is J.E. Skeets over at “Ball Don’t Lie” has the perfect wrap.
Check it: http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/ball_dont_lie/post/LeBron-James-breaks-silence-on-Dunkgate-hands;_ylt=AlsxJpnSxtUZ8vr_SSMSREY5nYcB?urn=nba,181361
My favorite part, Lebron talks in the third person. I’m looking forward to more of this.
Anyway, I’m Crunch and I used to post in parts awhile back. Took a sabatical and now I’m back to add commentary and kill time at work.
He uses his feet to defend
“The Cavaliers have been rumored as a suitor for Bruce Bowen, but they are unlikely to sign him, according to a source.
They still have their $2 million bi-annual exception at their disposal, but they are not committed to using it this season.”
I don’t mind this, even on the cheap. We are overloaded at the 2 as it is.
The guys over at LeBron2010 have been blowing up lately. Whether getting shoutouts on Jim Rome or just making awesome T-Shirts.
Well they made another. Personally, this one is even funnier
Hot Sauce in Mah Bag
If you don’t get the joke, you should google it and figure it out, its worth it.
p.s. this post officially debuts the “Delonte” tag.
