Sources close to the Suns claim that team president Steve Kerr might have dealt Shaquille O'Neal to the Cavaliers if Wally Szczerbiak, and not Ben Wallace, was included in the deal.

Szczerbiak has a sizable expiring contract, which is a very hot commodity on the trade market.

Phoenix is going to have to pay luxury tax, and acquiring someone like Szczerbiak would have lessened the blow.

Wow, this is almost unbelievable. They were willing to deal Ben Wallace, a much better player, istead of wally who is a good 3pt shooter and nothing more?

I guess anything to not have to pay Shaq's 20 million plus the luxury tax.
