Michael Redd would like to play with Lebron
CavsDec. 1 - The Bucks are off to a disappointing 4-8 start, but Michael Redd continues to improve. He's averaging career highs of 23.5 ppg, 5.1 rpg and 3 apg. He's also shooting a career-high 44 percent from 3 this season.
The bad news is Redd will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end, and one league source told ESPN Insider Chad Ford that Redd's seriously considering bolting to Cleveland to play with LeBron James. The Cavs are in desperate need of a 3-point shooter, and Redd, who was born in Columbus and played college ball at Ohio State, is itching to return.
The Cavs should have the money to pay him. Assuming they can get Zydrunas Ilgauskas to re-up for a reasonable amount, they should have enough cash under the cap to offer Redd the max. The way he's played the past two seasons, that's what he's worth – especially to a team like the Cavs, who desperately want to show LeBron they'll do whatever it takes to make the team a contender.
With the way the Cavs have been playing lately, you've got to believe a player like Redd would put them among the elite in the East.
