Cavaliers acquire Antawn Jamison for Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Draft Pick

The Cavaliers finally got their man.  Antawn Jamison has been a target of Danny Ferry for a long time.  He provides the Cavaliers that 'stretch-4' that most experts think they need to win a NBA Championship.  He's now a Cavalier.

The Cavs completed a 3-team, 6-player trade with the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers that saw the Cavaliers acquire Jamison from the Wizards and PG Sebastian Telfair from the Clippers.  It will cost the Cavaliers Zydrunas Ilgauskas and their 1st Round pick in the 2010 draft.

This is a great move by Ferry and the Cavaliers.  All along I have wanted Jamison, but not at the cost of losing J.J. Hickson.  Jamison is nearing the end of his career while Hickson's is just starting to bloom.  This allows the Cavaliers to acquire that could very well push them over the top in search of a Championship without trading away any of their core players.

Here's a look at the deal in its entirety -
