Cavs Ink Jamario Moon to Offer Sheet

If Miami fails to match the offer sheet extended by the Cavaliers for restricted free agent Jamario Moon, the 6’8″ Forward will be trading in South Beach for Tremont next season. Danny Ferry is looking more and more like the hardest working exec in the NBA, and landing Moon at this price would be another nice get for his club. There is no doubt that Moon would add length and athleticism on the perimeter, as well as legit ability off bench.  More on the proposed deal below: 

 ESPN’s Mark Stein:

“It’s believed that the Cavs were hooked on Moon’s ability to guard mobile forwards after their struggles to contain Hedo Turkoglu and Rasard Lewis in the Eastern Conference finals against Orlando…Moon, 29, is a 6-foot-8 late bloomer with career averages of 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds since breaking into the NBA with the Toronto Raptors in 2007-08. Miami acquired him in February in the Shawn Marion – Jermaine O’Neal trade.”

Plain Dealier’s Brian Windhorst:

“The Cavs have about $3.2 million left of their mid-level exception that they can use in whole or part or their full $2 million bi-annual exception to sign Moon. Offer sheets must be at least two years in length, though not both years must be guaranteed.”
