Source: Mavericks informed Ilgauskas will sign with Cavaliers

New, comments

ESPN is reporting that the Dallas Mavericks were told by Herb Rudoy, the agent for Zydrunas Ilgauskas, that Z intends to re-sign with the Cavaliers as soon as he is eligible on March 22.  I'll wait until Rudoy or Ilgauskas comes out and comfirms, but this news is hardly surprising.

It has been reported by Rudoy that Z would wait until sometime this week to make a decision, but prolonging the inevitable is hardly Z's style.  Living in Cleveland, such a major part of this community, Z is hearing how fans are reacting, and he knows how his teammates feel about him.

One team, however, the Denver Nuggets, are not going to give up without a fight.

"I'm not giving up on that. ... I did talk to him [Sunday]." said Nuggets coach George Karl

Karl, though, declined to reveal specifics about his phone chat with Ilgauskas.
