The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached an agreement in principle to acquire Phoenix Suns center Shaquille O’Neal(notes), a league source told Yahoo! Sports late Thursday night.

Cleveland will send Ben Wallace(notes), Sasha Pavlovic(notes), the 46th pick in Thursday’s draft and cash to the Suns for O’Neal

Can't believe the Suns didn't hold out for more, but obviously they're going to try to get Ben Wallace to retire so they save a few million. Still a pathetic job by Steve Kerr, who completely managed to ruin a contender in only a couple years.

I don't think this puts Cleveland over the top, but it's going to be so fun to watch
Nice. And yes, completely pathetic job by Kerr.

Now watch them extend Nash.

Well, the Spurs are going to win the title next year when they sign Rasheed Wallace for the MLE.

This is gonna be interesting to watch and it looks like the Suns are gonna cut Sasha as well so they're be saving around 10 million. dollars.

they had trouble cause they were doubling D12. that's done now, even before shaq now that Phil and co. gave the league the blueprint on how to play against Dwight.

How did you come up with that number?

The only way the Suns can save a lot of money is if they buyout Ben Wallace or he retires

And cutting Sasha doesn't remove him from their cap.
