Done Deal: Cleveland Cavaliers Obtain Antawn Jamison

The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a three-team, six player trade that lands them the Washington Wizards' Antwan Jamison and Los Angeles Clippers guard Sebastian Telfair.

The Wizards will receive Zydrunas Ilgauskas from Cleveland, and the Clippers land Drew Gooden after parting ways with the Marcus Camby, who had been traded to the Portland Trail Blazers.

Finally, Cleveland gets someone to bolster their team, after two weeks of hearing constant banter about how they were going to improve in the short term, and potentially the long term, if they can get someone that would convince league MVP LeBron James to stay around.

Despite Jamison being the a good move for the Cavaliers, there still remains the question of how the 6'9'' power forward will bolster the team's chances of winning a title.

Even with Jamison on the Cavaliers' roster, the Lakers remain the best team in the NBA.

Jamison desperately needs to play defense for the Cavaliers—a skill he is often criticized for.

Couple his skill set with LeBron’s excellent passing skills and overwhelming propensity to find the open man and Jamison should see his efficiency take a rise.

Jamison's contract has three years, and about $35 million left, but the Cavaliers are putting everything on the table in order to hang a championship banner at Quicken Loans Arena.
