This was reported by the Espn. Assosicated Press. Changing the uniform for Jamario Moon.

The 6-Foot 8 Moon has been let go by Miami. The Cavs had nearly 3.2 million of their cap space left to use.

This is the reason why Heat did not match the offer.

"We declined to match because we want to stay true to our plan of not adding salary to our 2010 cap, and matching it would have reduced our flexibility," Heat president Pat Riley said in a statement. "Michael Beasley will be getting significant minutes at both forward positions, and this opens up more opportunities for him to become the player we all expect him to be."

Beasley the 2nd pick in the 2008 draft.

This will be Cavs third addition in this offseason. Along with Moon , the Cavs have also got Shaq and Anthony Parker.

Here's the reason why the Cavaliers brought Moon in.

"Jamario is going to bring versatility and a high level of athleticism to our team," Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry said. "He should be a very good fit to our current roster. We are very happy to have him with us.

Letting go Moon gives them more flexibility. To steal Odom away from the Lakers and get Boozer from Utah.

Moon and O'Neal were acquired by Miami in Feburary from Toronto for Marion and Marcus Banks. 

Moon started in 60 of the 80 games he played for Miami and Toronto. He averaged 7.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and in 26 minutes of action.

He led the league in steals to turnover ratio at 2.00.

Moon will most likely backing up James in Cleveland.
