There have been multiple rumors involving Philadelphia Sixers G/F Andre Iguodala. Apparently, everyone on their roster is on the open market.

There is a hot rumor about Iguodala headed to the Houston Rockets for Tracey McGrady.

Another common rumor is Iguodala headed to Cleveland.

The Sixers are looking to rebuild their franchise and are in serious need of cap relief. The Cavaliers have a perfect deal just for Philadelphia.

The upside is the deal doesn't involve JJ Hickson or Daniel Gibson.

The Cleveland Cavaliers receive:
-G/F Andre Iguodala

The Philadelphia Sixers receive:
-C Zydrunas Ilgauskas
-G/F Daniel Green
-Second-Round draft pick

This deal gives the Sixers cap relief, a young talented player in Green, and a draft pick to focus on their future.

This deal gives the Cavaliers a starter over Anthony Parker to strengthen Cleveland's championship chances tremendously. Also, with the impending suspension of Delonte West, it gives their backcourt needed depth.

Not to mention Iguodala would fit this team perfectly. Not only would he be the #2/3 scoring threat alongside Mo Williams and LeBron James, but the man averages 5.7 assists per game.

The Cavalier's offense runs on chemistry and a solid shooter who shares the ball is just what this team needs.

Even if he isn't the best defender, he is a tall guard at 6'6',' which is just what the Cavaliers needed in the Eastern Conference Finals last season and what they acquired in the offseason with Parker and JaMario Moon.

Imagine a starting rotation that includes James, Williams, Hickson, Shaquille O'Neal, and Iguodala. Then Ilgauskas, West, Gibson, Anderson Varajao, Moon, and Parker coming off the bench. Not to mention Leon Powe in the near future.

With the best record in all of the NBA and having a 2-0 record on the season against reigning champion L.A. Lakers, this trade would instantly make the Cavaliers the favorite to win the NBA Finals.

If the Sixers are willing to buyout Z's contract after the trade, the Cavaliers could very well have themselves their first NBA Championship in franchise history.

The Sixers may want more for Iguodala and if that is the case, offer them a first-round draft pick instead of a second.

I believe a deal will be made.

GO CAVALIERS!!!!!!
