Over the last couple of days, we have seen many names hit the trading block, ranging anywhere from Anthony Tolliver to Wayne Ellington to Emeka Okafor to Antawn Jamison, among others.
According to CBSSports' Joe Berger, "The Cavs have been "aggressive" in seeking future assets for veteran Antawn Jamison."
But according to The Plain Dealer, Jamison doesn't think he'll be dealt by the time the trade deadline rolls around. Jamison reportedly told the newspaper,
"Honestly, deep down inside, I don't want to go anywhere, and I don't feel like I'm going anywhere," Jamison said. "I enjoy playing with these guys. These guys are very receptive to what I tell them and what I do on the court."
Despite being 35 years old, Jamison hasn't seemed to have slowed down. The former Tar Heel is having a spectacular season and has arguably been one of Cleveland's two best players. Through 38 games, Jamison is currently averaging 18.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.
Additionally, Jamison has scored in double-digits in every single game, but one since Jan. 25—in a loss to Boston on Feb. 28, Jamison registered just eight points but grabbed up eight rebounds.
Regardless, Jamison appears to have some left in the tank. He can be a very valuable asset to a championship-contending team. The only problem is that Jamison is owed $15,076,715 this season, but his contract expires at the conclusion of the 2011-12 campaign.
With the trade deadline looming, it looks as though Jamison could be headed out of Cleveland. And it may be for the best.
