Many On The Hot Seat In NBA
Posted by Nancy on July 19, 2010
It’s been a game of musical chairs in the NBA since the free agent trades began. Some players (Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James) maneuvered to get themselves on the same team so they could make an all out run for the championship. Other players haven’t had such a cut and dry journey. One such example is former Jazzman, Kosta Koufos who was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the deal that brought Al Jefferson to Utah. Rumors are that he won’t be in Minnesota long enough to even get acquainted with his new teammates and suggest that Cleveland may be looking to acquire Koufos and bring him back to his home state. The Cavaliers are in need of a big man (Koufos is a 7 footer) since center, Sasha Kaun will likely continue playing in Russia for the time being. After the gut check of losing LeBron, Cleveland is scrambling to assemble a team. It turns out that they also were interested in Al Jefferson, thank goodness the Jazz beat them to the punch.
