    Cleveland Cavaliers Sign Leon Powe

    Looks like there is a reason the Boston Celtics signed Glen "Big Baby" Davis and that reason was that Leon Powe was not going to return to the green and white. Today, Leon Powe and the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a two year deal for $1.77 million.

    Read the story here.

    As much as I love Leon Powe, I don't have any problem with this deal. Provided our team stays strong and injury free we are stacked on the bench after this off-season and Danny Ainge, in my humble opinion, made all of the right moves.

    This move though, baffles me from the Cavs perspective. Why would you sign a guy that won't even be ready until the middle of the season, if that soon. He might be ready to come back then, but will likely not be at 100% until the playoffs, which I guess is where they are banking on him helping them.

    Either way, if there was any question that the Boston Celtics, Orlando Magic and Cleveland Cavaliers are the head of the class in the East this year, those questions have been laid to rest.

    Leon, you will be missed. I love your intensity and your punch the clock mentality, please just don't come back to bite us in the ass.
