The Phoenix Suns have been involved in trade talks with the Cavaliers that would bring Shaquille O'Neal to Cleveland.
The rumored trade would send Shaq to the Cavs in exchange for Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic. This deal was first discussed back in February.
The financial terms are pretty equal, making this trade good on both ends. The Suns would clear some salary cap, and the Cavs would have a big center to pair with LeBron James.
Phoenix could save even more money if Wallace takes a buyout. He said he was considering retirement after the Cavs' Eastern Conference finals loss to the Orlando Magic.
