Deal believed to be worth $65M to $70M
By Chad Ford
ESPN Insider

Larry Hughes has come to terms with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a five-year deal, his agent, Jeff Wechsler, told ESPN Insider Chad Ford.

"Larry intends to sign a contract with the Cavs when the moritorium ends," Wechsler said.

Wechsler wouldn't comment on the actual numbers of the deal, but it's believed to be a five-year deal between $65 million and $70 million.

Wechsler told Insider that he informed Washington Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld on Thursday that Hughes is going in a different direction.


Grunfeld told ESPN.com that he was prohibited from commenting on the situation, citing league rules that prevent teams from commenting on free agency until the moritorium passes.

For the Cavs, Hughes gives them a great scorer and defender to put at the two alongside LeBron James. He isn't a great shooter (something the Cavs desperately need), but he's a fantastic ball handler and rebounder making him -- like LeBron -- a very versatile piece in the puzzle.

With Hughes on board, the Cavs will now focus their atttention on bringing back free agent Zydrunas Ilgauskas. They're also in hot pursuit of Lithuanian point guard Sarunas Jasikevicius, widely regarded as the best international player not playing in the NBA.

The news comes as major blow to the Wizards, who were confident they could re-sign Hughes. The Wizards eventually offered up to six years, $70 million.

The Wizards now have to start over from scratch. The team now has a big hole at the two to fill and must also deal with the likely departure of Kwame Brown. The Wizards can get about $9 million below the cap if they don't re-sign Brown. However, the market for two guards is getting thin.

The last major two guard on the market is Joe Johnson. However, Johnson is a restricted free agent and most teams believe that the Suns will match any offer. There's also talk from multiple league sources that Johnson is in serious negotiations with the Atlanta Hawks about signing a max offer sheet.

That leaves Bobby Simmons, Cuttino Mobley and Latrell Sprewell as the top two guards left on the board. The Wizards could also, at this point, try to work out a sign-and-trade with Brown that brings them back a top-flight shooting guard.
================================================== =======

I was starting to sweat some fucking bullets for a second there...phew!!! Allright, Operation: Keep LeBron In Cleveland, while having hit a couple of snags, is afoot. Next move: sign Big Z. Come on, Danny Ferry, don't let me down.

Late.

Hughes is one of those rare SGs that can play D and also drop 20 a night. Good move by Danny Ferry.

Ilgauskas will reportedly re-sign with Cavs
Associated Press
Posted: 5 hours ago

CLEVELAND (AP) - Free agent center Zydrunas Ilgauskas will re-sign with the Cavaliers, getting a five-year deal that could be worth up to $60 million, The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported on its Web site Monday.

Agent Herb Rudoy told the paper, "Z intends to sign back with Cleveland. Z is thrilled with the idea of coming back."
Messages seeking comment were left on Ilgauskas' cell phone and at Rudoy's office by The Associated Press on Monday night.

The deal can't become official until the free-agent signing period begins on July 22.

The Cavs made signing Ilgauskas an offseason priority. His signing is the second free-agent deal reached by new general manager Danny Ferry, who has roughly $28 million to spend as he tries to build a talented supporting cast around All-Star LeBron James.

The agent for guard Larry Hughes said last week that his client would leave the Washington Wizards as a free agent for the Cavaliers, who reached the deal after Milwaukee's Michael Redd and Seattle's Ray Allen decided to re-sign with their current teams instead of moving to Cleveland.

Hughes doesn't have the shooting ability of Redd or Allen, but he averaged 22 points per game and made the NBA's All-Defensive team last season.

Ilgauskas began his career with the Cavs during the 1997-98 season and at one point played in only 29 games over two seasons because of five foot operations. But he has not missed a game because of a major injury since 2001-02 and averaged 16.9 points and 8.6 rebounds last season.
================================================== =======

More pieces falling into place for LBJ...Operation: Keep LeBron In Cleveland seems to be moving forward quite nicely.

Late.
