Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace's name remains a mainstay in trade rumors, and the Cavaliers could have interest.

Many believe that Wallace would work well off the bench for Cleveland, and a deal involving Eric Snow, Sasha Pavlovic and Tarence Kinsey might be able to get the job done.

If that deal happened, Cavs basically got rid of their trash and got a good player.

Cleveland's got a good thing going.

I'd be careful about disrupting their chemistry. They've been searching for it forever and finally have it. It'd be touchy to start tinkering with something that ain't broken.

^ Are you kidding me? Wallace for Pavlovic, Snow, & Kinsey? You do that deal in a HEARTBEAT! No ifs or ands about it. That's a legit STEAL right there, makes em' even better & more dangerous INSTANTLY.

By the way, I'm guessing Eric Snow still has a contract with them or he hasn't officially retired? What exactly is the case there cuz I know for a fact I see him all the time working with NBATV as an analyst.

They've had a very easy schedule, so you can never be too good.

Snow hasn't played at all this year. Pavlovic is only averaging 3 points a game in 10 minutes per contest.

Bringing in Gerald, you bring in another guy who fits Mike Brown's defensive philosophy.

No - I'm not kidding.

Chemistry, despite the level of talent is important. Yes Wallace is a good talent but sometimes just bringing in talent for the sake of having the name aboard doesn't make it an automatic good deal.

See: The L.A. Clippers (whom everyone around here was saying was an easy playoff team based upon the roster on paper)

Chemistry matters and disrupting a flow on a team mid-season when there's really no trouble is always a risky move.

Let the Cavs do their thing, they're prob getting ready to get good players once LeBron leaves for NY.

It's risky to some degree I'll agree with that, but risky enough NOT to make the proposed move if true indeed I think not.

I can totally see both sides.

For me though, it isn't worth the gamble right now. If things slide a bit coming into the All-Star break, then sure. Right now, I stand pat.

They aren't losing anyone of importance though. It's not like they are losing a big player who will leave a gap. They are trading trash for a star. I'm not sure how they would line up though. Wallace at SG/PF? :unsure:
