Cavaliers 'Close' To Acquiring Marvin Williams From Hawks

In a deal that has been talked about for days, the Cavaliers look to be on the verge of a sign-and-trade deal with the Atlanta Hawks involving Shaquille O`Neal and Marvin Williams.  The Cavs have had interest in Williams for some time - the connection being Cavaliers G.M. Chris Grant, who was in Atlanta when they drafted Williams.

Shaq has been looking around for a solid offer - starting above the mid-level exception - but so far has had no luck. A sign-and-trade is his best chance at a decent contract and the Hawks are a team trying to win now after signing Joe Johnson to a max-contract in the off-season.
