Cleveland and Denver, sources say, remain the two teams out there with the most certifiable interest in dealing for Jackson.Captain Jack Not would help either team and make the Cavs the most dislikable team in the league by far, joining Lebron "Kiss his Ring" James and Shaq "The Big Mouth/Waste" O'Neal. Denver would actually become a big threat to the Lakers with Jackson on their squad (assuming they don't trade one of their bigs to get him). Jackson has an insane contract (for an insane player), so don't expect Golden State to get much back for him. I think its inevitable that he will be moved though. JR 10/23/2009 03:12:00 PM Tweet
The Cavs, though, don't want to surrender Zydrunas Ilgauskas in a prospective deal because they want to keep all the size they can muster to throw at Boston, Orlando and the defending champs from L.A.
Nuggets general manager Mark Warkentien, meanwhile, reminded folks this week that the front-office team in Denver is not afraid to swing big with Chauncey Billups in place to police any chemistry risks in the locker room, telling the Denver Post: “If we get stuck, Big Bertha’s coming out.”
