Less than 24 hours after we learn that Jamhal Mosley is leaving Denver for Cleveland, we hear that Joey "Bulldozer" Graham is a Cav too.
Really is a shame considering his last game as a Nuggets was by far his best career game and we'll always be left wondering if he could performed well under consistent minutes. I personally wish him the best of luck on the Cavs but he's got some pretty big shoes to fill from their last SF. He could end up starting (over Jamario Moon or Antwan Jamison) at SF so good for him.

I wonder if our FO is okay with letting Afflalo, JR and Harrington switch off at backing up Carmelo at SFor give Balkman some minutes . I think that's fine while he plays, but if he gets injured (knock on wood) we'd be in serious trouble b/c we still need JR and AAA to play min at SG and Al at PF. I think we should sign a wing that won't play unless there's an injury just as an insurance, someone like Ime Udoka (we had interest in last year), Keith Bogans (also had interest last year), Adam Morrison (no thanks), James Singleton, and prob some others I fogot to mention. Maybe we just keep our roster in tack and if something were to happen we just play Shelden at PF or Chauncey at SG to let AAA/ Al/ JR play at SF. Also want to point out there are couple big men available still to sit on the bench: Kyrlo Fesenko, DJ Mbenga, Alexis Ajinca (trade) and some other scrubs.
Also, I want to say that I read the deal was a 2 year $2.1 million deal, with a team option for the 2nd year, so it's pretty much a minimum deal that a team can choose if they want to keep him. Pretty sad that we couldn't keep him at that rate.
