Full Court Press....Cavaliers share the love with Zydrunas Ilgauskas

The Cavaliers traded Zydrunas Ilgauskas on February 17 - then didn't speak to the team's all-time leader in games played, blocked shots and rebounds for over two weeks.  While Z wa a member of the Washington Wizards, they couldn't.  Once Ilgauskas cleared Waivers, the Cavaliers were sure to remind Z just how much he is appreciated and wanted in Cleveland.

Sources said Ferry met with Ilgauskas, who has been working out for the past week in New York, where he maintains an off-season home. It is believed Ferry made Ilgauskas an offer to re-sign with the team at that time.

Then on Tuesday, sources said, several of Ilgauskas' former and perhaps soon-to-be reunited teammates came to see him after the team flew into town for Wednesday's game against the New Jersey Nets.

There are some indications Ilgauskas could make his decision known very soon, perhaps as early as today.

None of this comes as much of a surprise, just like it will not be a shock when Z announces he is returning to the team.  Still, showing a bit of love for Z, especially after the trade and subsequent two weeks that have passed since, is important.  While some may feel there were deals in place, etc, there were not and giving Z any reason NOT to come back to Cleveland are foolish.

Once again, Danny Ferry, and the Cavaliers' players, have proven this is a great place to play.
