Cavs’ Antawn Jamison Not Expecting Trade
Antawn Jamison has heard the trade rumors. He knows he has an expiring contract — considered a valuable commodity in this sometimes warped world of NBA deals. He also understands the Cavs are approaching this season with one eye on the future.
So it’s no surprise to the 35-year old Cavaliers forward that his name keeps popping up.
“If I don’t hear my name around this time, that’s when I’ve got something to worry about, because that’s when something might actually happen,” he said from the Cavs’ practice facility Monday.
“It’s part of the game, as far as trade rumors and speculation,” he said. “People call me just as much at this time as anytime of the year. They say, ‘I heard you might go to this place or that place.’ But me and (Cavs general manager Chris) Grant have a good relationship. He told me that if something comes up, ‘I’ll be the first to let you know.’
“As a player, that’s very satisfying when you have someone who is up front with you and will let you know if something is going to happen. So far, we haven’t had that talk. So I don’t expect to go anywhere.”
