    1. The Cavs are desperate for a short term solution at center.
      PJ should leave a one word message on Cleveland’s GM voicemail: “Dalembert”.
      He’d be negligent to not reach out and try to make a deal.

      Any move to make the knicks worse this season and better in the future is a good one.
