Why Firing Reghi?

Reghi was the voice of the Cavaliers for the past 15. He’s also built a fan following and has been a very strong, positive voice for the franchise.

So why did Dan Gilbert fire him? Did he say anything that the Cavaliers organization didn’t like or approve of? Or they liked Detroit Pistons broadcaster Fred McLeod more.  All they told us is that the team “preferred to go in another direction”
McLeod just resigned from his work as the Pistons’ broadcaster on Detroit’s FSN station and announced he will soon be leaving his TV sports gig on WDIV in Detroit. He spent the last 22 years doing Pistons basketball.
McLeod worked in the Cleveland TV market in the 1970s.
Reghi will always be remembered as one of the BEST Cavaliers announcers!

Drew Gooden’s contract talk update, could be heading to Lakers!

The deal signed by Nene with the Denver Nuggets is affecting the Cavaliers ability to come to terms with restricted free agent Drew Gooden. 

Gooden’s agents decided to pursue sign-and-trade options for the restricted free agent forward, Brian Windhorst of the ABJ said.

“According to two league executives, the Cavs are hoping to schedule a meeting with free agent forward Reggie Evans next week and might also look to pursue another free agent big man, Lorenzen Wright.”

Hoopsworld.com put a list of eight reasons why Drew could be heading to the Lakers. I don’t think that is possible though.

“There have been some rumors that the Cavs were in talks with the Phoenix Suns for a sign-and-trade involving Gooden and forward Kurt Thomas. According to insiders, that isn’t currently a possibility.” Brian Said.
