We tossed around 'Sheed's name when it became publicly known he was attempting a comeback, so I figure we may as well discuss any 3-5s that hit the wire during the season. This from Yahoo! Sports:
Jan 17 F Boris Diaw could be traded soon. The
CavaliersBobcats have no problem dealing him at this point, but working out something that would clearly be an improvement to just letting his contract expire at the end of this season is no given. Diaw makes $9 million this season and then becomes an unrestricted free agent. Either way, Diaw will be gone, by the March trade deadline or five weeks later when the season ends. He's no longer a starter and can't be happy playing 15 minutes a night off the bench.
Fat jokes aside -- actually, go ahead with them, as planned -- he's still a solid contributor across the board. I'll leave the contract/salary logistics to those who know better than I, but if the Clippers could acquire Diaw for part of their PG depth (Bledsoe) and a future 2nd, would you be content acquiring Boris Diaw as a reserve 3-5?
