Quick update, courtesy of Cavs: The Blog, our True Hoop brother covering Cleveland: Joe Smith is apparently on his way to securing a buyout from the Thunder and, if that happens, will likely sign with Cleveland. Just last week, Smith was saying he was happy in Oklahoma City. Do you think maybe LeBron James placed a phone call after Ben Wallace broke his leg the other night?
So, to repeat: The Celtics signed Mikki Moore, a player inferior in almost every way to Smith. Then they spent $1.3 million on a legendary head case who may or may not end up helping the team.
The Cavs, meanwhile, may end up getting a steady big man with a decent jumper and a good hoops IQ.
I have a bad feeling about this.
