I know some people were hoping that we could land Hakim Warrick, but it doesn't sound like we're one of his options. Marc Stein reports:
Word is Hakim Warrick, transformed from a restricted free agent to an unrestricted free agent last week when the Grizzlies withdrew their qualifying offer, is deciding between Cleveland, Philadelphia and Milwaukee and could choose his new team as early as Friday.
The athletic power forward averaged 11.6 points and 5.0 rebounds last season for the Grizz. If the Cavs -- who still have their $1.9 million bi-annual exception to offer, as Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reminds -- could add Warrick to Anthony Parker and Jamario Moon, that would be three interesting bargains to supplement their trade for Shaquille O'Neal and the pricey re-signing of Anderson Varejao.
Here's hoping that doesn't happen. I don't like the idea of the Cavs loading up any more than they already have.
