Welcome to Cleveland Mo!!!

The Cavaliers pulled off a rather large trade today, bringing in Mo Williams for Joe Smith and Damon Jones. Williams is an offensive spark plug that should help LeBron immensely. I hate losing Joe Smith because I liked what he did in his short time here last year. But Smith and Jones are both expiring contracts and the Bucks were obviously looking to trim payroll. We've been hearing the Williams rumors for the last few days and I have to say I'm fairly shocked that this one went down.

The Milwaukee Bucks traded point guard Mo Williams to the Cavs in exchange for the expiring contracts of guard Damon Jones and forward Joe Smith. As part of the deal, the Bucks will receive Jones and Oklahoma City point guard Luke Ridnour. Oklahoma City acquires Smith and Bucks forward Desmond Mason. Oklahoma City also will send swingman Adrian Griffin to the Bucks.

And probably the best news of the day in this trade - Brian Windhorst returned to the ABJ to break the story! Welcome back Windy, you were sorely missed.
