According to Brian Windhorst's Tweet, Big Z coould be the next former-Cavalier headed south to join LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami
According to a source, Zydrunas Ilgauskas is close to accepting a contract from the Miami Heat. The Cavs had an offer for Z on the table.
The Cavaliers had an offer on the table to Ilgauskas, and have always said Z is welcome to return, but you have to imagine that Z's age, combined with the way everything went down last season - the trade, 30 days out of basketball, the comeback, the bench - has to give Z enough reason to go to a team with the best chance of winning right now.
This is not another case of a Cleveland athlete leaving for more money or a better situation. This is the case of a player that has given everything to the Cavaliers nearing the end of his career, having earned the right to find the best offer - the offer that might get him an elusive Championship.
Z's agent, Herb Rudoy, has confirmed that Ilgauskas will sign with the Heat, saying that Z would like to return to the Cavaliers organization when his career is over.
As hard as it is, I wish Big Z nothing but the best. A true Class-Act.
