The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly signed Miami Heat F Jemario Moon to an offer sheet that sources say is for at least two seasons.
The 6-8, 200lb. Moon seems to fit exactly the type of player the Cavaliers have been trying to bring in this off-season - wing players with size that can play defense.
|2008 - Jamario Moon||80||25.9||2.8||5.9||46.8||0.8||2.3||35.5||0.9||1.0||85.0||0.7||3.8||4.6||1.2||0.5||1.1||0.8||1.7||7.2|
The Heat will have 7 days to match the offer, but with their sights set on Lemar Odom, as well as their attempt to maintain cap flexibility next season, it would appear that the Cavs would be is solid position to obtain Moon's services.
According to Brian Windhorst, timing of the offer sheet, the first of Danny Ferry's tenure as Cleveland's G.M. is interesting -
Usually Cavs General Manager Danny Ferry avoids players who are restricted and this is the first offer sheet he's given in his four years as GM. However, the Cavs may be acting with some gamesmanship here as the Heat twist a bit while waiting to see if Los Angeles Lakers free agent Lamar Odom accepts an offer they have given him. Locking up Moon to an offer sheet prevents him to be used in sign-and-trades, which the Heat may have been looking at as well.
Whatever the case, the Cavaliers will now wait to see if the Heat match.
