Terry Pluto: Jasikevicius Should Go to Cleveland
July, 3, 2005
A lot of teams are hot for European star Sarunas Jasikevicius. Knight-Ridder columnist Terry Pluto (he wrote the ABA book Loose Balls which has the great Marvin Barnes quote "game time is on time!") says Jasikevicius should play alongside LeBron James:
The Cavaliers might have an inside track on Jasikevicius for a few reasons:
He wants to come to a team where he can start, and Snow is the Cavaliers' only point guard.
He was the best man in Ilgauskas' wedding, and the two Lithuanians are close. That assumes Ilgauskas re-signs with the Cavaliers.
He is not fixated on playing for a warm-weather team. He also might be attracted to Cleveland, because it is an ethnic city where Ilgauskas has been made to feel comfortable.
