Cavaliers to Trade Delonte West?

According to the Plain Dealer, the Cavs will be looking to move West this summer. Hmm: “Andy Miller, the agent for several Cavs, including guard Sebastian Telfair, said Saturday that Telfair has elected to pick up his $2.7 million option for next season. The Cavs have not yet received the paperwork, but it is expected to become official next week. Telfair was limited to just four games with the Cavs after being part of the Jamison trade in February as he recovered from a ruptured muscle in his leg. The quick point guard averaged 9.8 points in games at the end of the season. Telfair’s future with the team is uncertain. He is a trading chip because of his expiring contract, but the Cavs are expected to attempt to trade backup guard Delonte West and that could make Telfair more valuable. West has a partially guaranteed contract of $4.6 million that is worth just $500,000 if he’s waived by August 5. That type of deal that could provide more than $5 million in savings for another team depending on how a trade is structured.”

    Is this trade related to the rumors of affair between west and lebron james mother?

  • nastierthanu

    Has he been to court for the shotty on the spider? I don’t know how tmz hasn’t given this guy a special

  • Kendrick is God

    i wonder what Gloria would say about this?

    IF they really want to trade him, of all the teams I think the Lakers would be a great fit. Him manning the point in the triangle, being a willing passer and also a guy who can score if needed (and being a “big” PG that Jackson likes), I can see it happen.

  • John W Sharp

    I feel sorry for Lebron. He is among other things a nice man. failure is bearable. Ridicule is not. He didn’t deserve this.

  • T-Money

    I agree. I think he would be an ideal pg for the Lakers. The triangle doesn’t require a playmaker at the 1. He plays solid defense and has a high basketball IQ (even though his off court judgment doesn’t seem to be very sound).

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ BETCATS

    Oh yeah Gerard, great idea. Kobe, Delonte, and Ron Artest on the same team. Its like the Justice League for retards. You got Ball Hog R@pist in one coner, Public Enemy #101 in another, and Mr. Bat Sh!t Crazy at the head of the table. Oh, and Kobe, Delonte, and Ron Ron would also be present(you guys didnt think i was calling them all those mean names, did you?). Quite a locker room.

    Hold on, so people actually believe this internet rumor just because it was relayed by every single blog notwithstanding the fact that there are no proofs, no sources and no facts? OK.

  • http://www.kb24.com The Seed

    @BETCATS you need to go back to the jungle to hang out with the other dumb season ticket holders. I know your team gave up against the Magic and your coach wants to leave yall, but come on. Your loser team had Kobe and gave him up for Divac, very smart at the time like you right. See if Kobe played for the Hornets during those years, I promise the team would not have left. I am a North Carolina boy and the BOBCATS sucked and still suck. They need an overhaul as a team, to bring in some fans trade Stephen Jackson for Vince Carter. Magic would make Finals next year and Carter would have highlight dunks and go out in the first round again. Maybe you didn’t get enough hugs as a baby, but boy you are one dummy. How in the HE Double Hockey Sticks did this cat right for yall (SLAM). Man his stuff sucked then and HIBACHI THIS you Agent Zero. NOOOORRRTH CACATCALLAIC stand up, don’t let this chump right for this awesome website again, he probably needs to get LUCKY like Delonte all that pinned up frustration, maybe you need to phone Tyrone, maybe you a switch hitter. BET you like that CAT.

  • http://www.twitter.com/GerardHimself Gerard Himself

    The Seed: although BETCATS made a horrible comment in an attempt at being funny, you are wrong about one thing: his team didn’t draft Kobe. The Charlotte HORNETS did that, nowadays the New Orleans Horneys. The Bobcats didn’t exist when Kobe was drafted…

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ BETCATS

    The Seed, that is a lot of frustration right their. I would respond with a witty joke regarding you, but that would require that i know something about you first; which i dont. I am more important to you than you are to me. Congratulations for being a nobody against a somebody in the facelessness of the internet. I wonder how good it felt for you when you typed that. I know how it feels to type stuff like that. Just lay it all out. F everybody. ‘Hey he attacked something i cared about, so instead of addressing it, imma go off topic and attack something he cares about. That will show him not to mess with me again!’ Feels good, right? Oh im sure it did. Im sure you felt like the man. But here i am, laughing my @ss off at the fact that people on a site i barely even comment on anymore still know stuff about me, and i never even interacted with them, ever. March on Christian solider, march on!

    And FYI, hugging a baby doesnt make them smarter. Although i am sure that is how your parents explained the thing they did with a pillow case to you every night before you went to sleep. Too bad they werent willing to hug you long enough.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ BETCATS

    ^oh their is the witty joke! Its on. “The comments section is a place to further discuss the topics in this post. Commenters who seek to accomplish any of the following may be banned:
    - Personally attack other commenters.” Im going to stop now. Too bad these things showed up.

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com/ BETCATS

    But back to what i said orignally that started all this: how wrong was i? Kobe was indeed on trial (and aquitted!) for r@pe. He might not have been guilty but it did put a stain on his legacy (which has been enlarged by that white hot photoshoot he recently did). He was also known as a ball hog, which he has become less of during/since the year they won their last chip. Just dont tell Pau Gasol that. Ron Artest did a whole freaking article/cover where he called himself a public enemy and loves that title. Delonte West rides motorcycles with shot guns, suffers from depression, banged Lebron’s mom (probably not though), and has said enough quotables to fill up a book. Im pretty sure calling him any time of crazy without some fancy name is a conservative statement. “Oh dont mind Delonte, he’s just crazy” sounds a lot better than “dont mind Delonte, he’s just schizophreniac and bipolar”….Not sure why everyone got so mad.

    Delonte to Lebron’s mom: Sit your @∫∫ down!

    Damn bet, thats good stuff there. And 207 wasnt me.

  • John W Sharp

    Delonte should stay with the cavaliers. lebron should just grow up. grow up: stop dancing. Grow up: what is this crap with the powder?. grow up: what is this “chosen one” and “king james” crap? grow up: play ball or do commercials. Grow up: don’t ever use the word “championship”

    This is a personal attack on everyone here who obviously skipped English classes in school and is oblivious to basic writing elements such as spelling and grammar. Are you all dumb or just trying to act “gangster”?

    @Betcats. I’m just curious why did you sa Delonte is Schizophreniac & Bipolar. Are you a Neurologist or if not can you show proof that Delonte is that person as you accused him of.

    I’m not Delonte’s fan nor his team, but I’m just so curious of your comments.

    I’m neither against nor got mad at you, but I as a Basketball Enthusiast I really want to know how you got that statement on Delonte as if you deeply hated him & so with the other two,(Kobe & Artest).

    I’m hoping you’ll respond to my querry,so it will satisfy my being so curious.

    Thanking you so much in advance….,,

    You know, if things got serious Delonte could be LeBrons stepdad – first time a father and son played for the same team?!!?

  • John W Sharp

    I’m obsessed with the gloria james delonte west affair. This along with lebrons choke in the playoffs, is the ‘juicy news” of the year. I have to admit I dont like any Cleveland sports team. Cleveland is the poorest city in the country. Cleveland is one of the most segregated cities in America. Segregation leads to unemployment which leads to poverty. Segregation also leads to a city that abandons the Cleveland Public Schools. The only curse is the Cleveland school children.

  • http://Hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Terry im not Board Certified or anything and I really just listed the first 2 mental disorders that came to mind. I think we can all agree their is something seriously wrong with Delonte.

  • http://Hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    And Terry, if you want ‘proof’ of Delonte’s mental dispostion just read about his personal life then get on YouTube and watch some of his interviews. You’ll start to see it if you pay attention. Also I don’t hate Ron. I dislike Kobe as a person but don’t hate him either.

    Delonte has been diagnosed with a mental problem. I think it was bipolar according to the report I read. The incident with the guns came after he went off his meds.

  • Stac

    I would be really disappointed if the Cavs trade Delonte. I think he is a tremendous asset to the team. He is very good at a lot of the intangibles out on the court. I like his hustle and his energy. He made a lot of critical plays for the Cavs during the playoffs against the Bulls and the Celtics (not to mention during the regular season). That tends to get overlooked at this point. Not to mention he scored big points when LeBron was benched late in the season. I am very curious to see how a new coach would utilize Delonte’s talents on the court. It would be very sad to see the possibilities lost. Please keep Delonte!

  • John W Sharp

    Gentlemen I would worry a lot more about lebron than about delone.

    Lebron had some type of mental breakdown during the Boston series. Even if he just heard a rumor during a game; he still had to do his job!

    So I would be more concerned with lebron than delonte. lebrons meldown could be the sign of an underlying weakness
