Juwan? I Smell Desparation

According to the great Branson Wright of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Power Forward Juwan Howard have agreed to a contract buyout. Rumor has it this could signal Howard moving a little south and a little more East to Cleveland. While this move reeks of despiration, even a semi-washed up Juwan would be an improvement in the front-court over current scrub-dog 4th options Dwyane Jones and Cedric Simmons. Whether it happens or not remains to be seen. My insiders insist the Mavericks and Celtics are in the mix as well. The Cavs did make one move today that should definitely put them over the top, however; they claimed former Syracuse shooting guard Demetris Nichols

Who would have thought that on the 15 year anniversary of the Fab Five at Michigan, Juwan would be the last man standing. C Webb is a stand-still jump-shooting statue who was so badly exposed during the playoffs last year that he has not caught on with any team this season. He still sits at home wishing Pistons GM Joe Dumars would call. That ain't happenin'. Jalen Rose has successfully turned himself into an NBA analyst for ESPN. As for Jimmy King, according to his
wikipedia page, In a phone interview on the Jim Rome Show on November 30, 2006, Jimmy stated he was currently working as a financial advisor for Merrill Lynch on Wall Street. Ray Jackson, according to Wikipedia, Jackson now lives in Austin, Texas where he runs a moving company and Rise Up Inc., a not-for-profit organization that assists children socially, educationally and on the basketball court.

In other Cavaliers news, they still have no real point guard, Anderson Varajao and Sasha Pavlovic are still holding out, the sky is blue and water is wet.
