Shaq traded to the Cavs! Phoenix Suns center Shaquille O’Neal has been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Get the details on this developing story plus photos and video of Shaq below.
The Phoenix Suns have traded Shaquille O’Neal to the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to ESPN. Reportedly both teams have agreed to the trade, with it becoming a done deal on Thursday.
And just what do the Phoenix Suns get for trading O’Neal? They acquire Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic, the 46th pick in the draft and $500,000. The Suns now have four picks in the draft Thursday night – 14, 46, 48 and 57.
The Cavs have been eying Shaq since February and I’m sure they’re wishing they had him during the playoffs, as they clearly could not stop Dwight Howard during the Eastern Conference Final.
As a longtime Phoenix Suns fan, I will admit, I was quite peeved that they traded Shawn Marion for Shaq back in February 2008. I felt it was a big mistake on the Suns’ part, and now, with Shaq traded to the Cavs, and dumping his salary, well…okay, I digress. You know where I’m going with this…
