Cavaliers To Acquire Jamison From Wizards In Three-Team Deal

If trading for Amare Stoudmire was the top priority for the Cleveland Cavaliers, landing Antawn Jamison from Washington is hardly a disappointing Plan B. With help from the Los Angeles Clippers, the Cavs appear to have swung a deal.

Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has the story.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached agreement on a six-player, three-team trade that lands them former All-Star forward Antawn Jamison, league sources with knowledge of the talks told Yahoo! Sports.

The Cavaliers are sending center Zydrunas Ilgauskas and a first-round pick to the Wizards. The Wizards also will receive Brian Skinner and Al Thornton(notes) from the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavaliers will get point guard Sebastian Telfair from the Clippers. The Wizards will send Drew Gooden to the Clippers.

Wojnarowski has also tweeted a few updates:

The Clippersplan to buyout Drew Gooden's contract and allow him to become a free agent, a league source told Y! Sports. The Wizards also get the rights to former Cavs pick, Emir Preldzic, a source said.

The trade gives Cleveland a solid post presence to pair with LeBron James, allows Washington to go into full rebuilding mode, and dumps $5.5 million off the Clippers’ payroll. Drinks all around.

Update: Ric Bucher is tweeting that Skinner is NOT involved.

And, yes, I know some of you have seen this elsewhere already. But Skinner not involved as some reported.

More to come as it is available.
