Forget Gerald Wallace

First of all, I did throw out an unsubstantiated rumor last night that said the Cavs might be interested in sending J.J. Hickson and Wally Szczerbiak to the Charlotte Bobcats for swingman Gerald Wallace in a sign-and-trade.

I explained that it probably wouldn't happen, since Wallace has $40 million left on his contract over the next four years.

The only reason the Bobcats would do this is in a salary dump.

I was told by a reputable source that the Cavs had not talked about anything even close to this.

So, let's put this out of our heads. These things seem to take on a life of their own sometimes.

I think Wallace would be a good fit in Cleveland. But it appears that the Cavs are very close to agreeing on a two-year contract with Anthony Parker.

How about these domino effect of signings PF/C Varejao 27 6 years 50 mil. A.Parker 34 2 years half of the MLE C.Frye 24-27 range with the other half of the MLE. Now with the BAE I'd like Ma.Williams from Atl also in that 24-27 range. G.Wallace rumored was also a good one at 24-27 range. Nobody can fault any GM for trying to keep most of their roster under 27.
