Not even getting into the fairness of the trade... why would Cleveland trade away Diop, when they're in the middle of a rebuilding movement? He's part of their young core.

OH COMON MEN

Cleveland trades away Diop and an old center who has two years left max and gets Spree and a center who was almost Rookie of the Year. But the trade sucks for Minnesota. They dont get enough for their second best player and Lopez is no throw-in. It works for NY (sort of) and Cleveland, but you need to give somethin better to the Wolves.

No way the Cavs do this

First and foremost I am not a Knick basher. I am however annoyed by trades that are not making an effort to be advantageous to all teams involved. Why in the world would the Cavaliers trade 3 of their tallest players when the only player that they are actively trying to trade right now is Murray. Not only are the Cavs not getting equal value they are acquiring longer contracts which is directly opposed to what they are attempting to do.

Okay but lets look at this from the side of the Knicks do you really think they can trade Sprewell, Postell and Weis and get back Lopez, Ilgauskus and Szerbiak? Please...

How bout TWolves!

They would never, ever do this. Wally is rumored to be on the trading block, but Minnesota isn't gonna give up Szczerbiak and their first round draft pick for about three years (Joe Smith) for a bunch of scrubs. Diop does have potential, but Szczerbiak is worth a whole lot more than a bunch of scrubs.

Your absolutely correct. I wasn't even looking at the Timberwolves side of this trade.

I really don't think that there is anybody out there that really want Sprewell. He's overpaid for what he brings to the table.
