Mike Bibby an Option for the Cleveland Cavaliers?


Keep an eye on Cleveland in the next couple of weeks. If general manager Danny Ferry can figure out a way to acquire point guard Mike Bibby from the Sacramento Kings before the Feb. 21 trade deadline, the Eastern Conference becomes a legitimate three-horse race (Boston, Detroit and Cleveland).Bibby, who is about a week away from returning after thumb surgery, is exactly what the Cavaliers lack-a battle-tested floor leader who can create his own shot, find easy shots for others, and take a huge load off LeBron James.The Kings are in a rebuilding phase and they are trying to lighten their payroll to make a run at the free-agent class of 2009. Bibby has been unhappy since the Kings started breaking up their core three years ago. Click here for more from the Detroit News.
