Shaq to Cleveland

Another trade just went down before the draft. Like the Jefferson to San Antonio trade, I think this is a one sided depending upon how you look at it. Cleveland basically got an upgrade at the center position (though not sure how Big Z and Shaq will split minutes) and Phoenix got a ton of cap relief. Wallace and Pavlovic are expected to be bought out so they won't play a minute for Phoenix.
The bigger implication is that Phoenix has pretty much given up on the 2009-2010 season. Reportedly Amare Stoudamire isn't happy and will probably be moved or else he walks away next season without any return for Phoenix. It'll be interesting to see where he lands. Good news for the Warriors as the Pacific just got a little weaker. They might just be the 2nd best team that division.
