While I ponder my fanhood of the Browns, this morning I turn my attention to the Cavaliers. Sure, they may not even be in season yet, but I’m not even thinking about this year. After hearing from Natalie over at Need4Sheed that the Pistons could be low-balling forward/center Jason Maxiell, the first thought that came to my mind was “Man, would he look nice in Cleveland.”
It appears that Detroits offer was $15 million for three seasons; not the biggest testment to what they see in his future, yet surprising when you consider the ages of their current forwards Rasheed Wallace and Antonio McDyess. Matt over at Detroit Bad Boys doesn’t believe that any teams will offer Maxiell the full mid-level exemption, which would be approximately $2-3 million more per year.
You have an intense, defense-oriented forward with a knack for huge blocked shots and has put up solid scoring per 36 minutes. Couple all of this with the fact that we have our own power forward that is going to be a free agent at the end of this season, and I wonder which player I would rather see on this team going forward.
