He was traded because everyone wanted his expiring contract so they can save cap space. The Cavs knew that Z would come back to the team, so they were willing to trade him. Exactly how much behind the scenes stuff went on no one is sure of, but I can guarantee you that Z knew what was going to happen. The Pistons and Celtics did the exact same thing in recent years.

Basically they had a situation where Z gets a month off from basketball and the Cavs get Jamison for a fraction of what he is worth. It's a win-win.

The winners here are the Cavs and the Wizards. The Cavs get their player back, and the Wizards get to save 30 some million dollars.

The Pistons and Celtics got the same thing the Cavs got from this. They had a player that they moved off their roster, then resigned them under much more agreeable terms after the waiting period was over. For the Pistons, it even involved a trade just like the Cavs did. The Pistons player was released, so he came back to them after his waiting period was up. For the Celtics, I think they saved money and avoided a tax or something like that. I have to look it up, but they utilized the same loophole the Pistons and now the Cavs are using.

The Pistons always played dirty and I think a lot of their success came from that. I wouldn't put cheating past them though.

You mean why did a lot of their success come from that, or why I wouldn't put cheating past them?

The Pistons have been a dirty team for probably the past 20 or 30 years. They like to do little things the refs won't notice to help win the game. With them, they attack mentally or try to frustrate people by giving them cheap shots or elbows instead of playing better basketball and beating them that way. They foul excessively hard and then pretend it was an accident, and the team has always been full of crybabies. Watch some of the past Pistons teams play very closely. It's amazing what you will see them do and how little of it gets noticed.

They aren't the bullies they use to be. Compare the rosters from just 5 or 6 years to today's roster.
The Wizard's are the new Piston's. Jamison is so glad to be with a team that works hard towards a COMMON goal, shares the ball (like last night Cavs had 38 assists on 47 FGs), helps each other try to improve, has each other's back and all the while having fun.

Um, I'll just respond to both of you in one post since I don't want to write the same thing twice.

First, wow. The two of you found some common ground. I agree with both of you that the Pistons are nothing like they were. Back even 5 or 6 years ago, you're right Bewitched that they were a completely different team. Tiffany, yes, they're wasting away to nothing.

It's almost as if their identity as a team was playing cheap, and once they started to lose that, they started to go downhill. I think that's an interesting way to look at it. I mean, they played dirty for how many years - that had to have become a part of the team's identity.

Yeah,well now their paying for every cheap dirty play they ever did.Now they cant even make the playoffs because the are lacking defense,they lost almost all their key players,and the injuries are piling.

True, but they had a really nice Championship run from playing dirty all those years. It wasn't right, but they sure made a nice profit off of it. Some teams make a run and come up short. They were able to pull off some titles before their run ended.

That being said, I'm glad they're in the gutter now. There's nothing I like better than beating down a lousy Pistons team. It makes me happy every time.
