Report: Cavs get Jamison in 3-way trade

LeBron James has a new sidekick in his quest for an NBA title.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have completed a three-team trade that sends Antawn Jamison to Cleveland, according to the New York Post .

The deal reportedly involves the Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards. Jamison and Sebastian Telfair will go to Cleveland; Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Al Thornton to Washington; and Drew Gooden to Los Angeles.

One or two other minor players also may be involved in the transaction, according to the report.

The key to the deal is the 6-9, 235-pound Jamison, a two-time All-Star who is averaging 20.5 points and 8.8 rebounds this season for the Wizards.

At 33, Jamison is in the second year of a four-year, $50 million contract.

The Cavaliers also reportedly pursued Suns center Amar'e Stoudemire, but Stoudemire now may go to Miami if Phoenix decides to trade him.

The deal allows the Clippers to shed next season's guaranteed contracts belonging to Thornton ($2.8 million) and Telfair ($2.7 million), giving them cap room to pursue a marquee free agent this summer.
