Would make sense for both teams. Right now, Cleveland has a very loaded backcourt (Miller, Wagner, Davis) and Memphis the same problem with the frontcourt (Gasol, Swift, Gooden, Wright).
A trade would balance both line-ups.

I agree whit what Bulls said. If memphis wanted him they could have taken hin with thier pick. The reason that the Cavs picked Wagner is because they were going to trade Miller. Even if the Cavs dont trade Miller, he is goint to live after this season via free agency. Wagner becomes their guard of their future.

Yep, and then when Wagners contract year comes up and he asks to be maxed out like Dre there will have to be a new cavs point of the future. Nice organization.

In the 2 years that Andre Miller has been the Cavs point guard he has done the following:

*Averaged 16.15 points per game
*Averaged 9.45 assits per game
*Led the Cavs to a combined 60-104 record
*Represented the Cavs in 0 All-Star Games

Why max out a PG? Who was the last team to win an NBA title with a legitmite PG?? Think about it........the Detroit Pistons with Isaih Thomas, you don't want to build a team solely around a PG, especially since Illgauskas is already maxed out and half their salary would belong to Z and 'Dre. If the can trade Miller for D. Miles and get sign a PG like McInnis they'll be fine and would be able to max out Wagner in 4 years.
Starting Line-up:

1 - McInnis
2 - Wagner
3 - D. Miles
4 - Boozer/Hill/????
5 - Diop/Z

Yeah, but Wagner may end up being better than Cassell. IMO, he will.

Why would anyone want to max out a PG? Look at the difference Bibby made on that Kings team this past year. Without him, they don't even come close to winning that series. If the right pieces are in place, a talented point can bring it all together. The Clips are doing the right thing trying to get Miller, he'd be perfect for them.
