For Ben Wallace and Pavlovic though, it's not exactly a big risk.
Shaq for Wallace and Pavlovic is basically giving you Shaq for free. Shaq is a greater offensive threat than Ben Wallace who can't score if his life depended on it. Shaq is just as good defensively. Pavolivic helped Cleveland in the beginning and middle of the season, but fell off towards the end. This is a no-brainer.
