Bad Knee, Maybe, But Strong Heart

The Cavs signed veteran forward Leon Powe to provide bench strength once Powe's knee heals (and it's expected to by the All-Star break).

This is a guy who was in the same HS graduating class as LeBron James. He was a big star in his own right coming out of high school. Major injuries have limited Powe to reaching his ceiling, but his career at Cal and as a back-up with the Celtics demonstrates that this guy comes to play and can make a big contribution to his team.

This is another wise move for the Cavs, who are primed to provide a solid mix of players to surround LeBron and get the Cavs their first championship. It's not without risk, but if Powe gets healthy and can contribute in the second half of the season, the Cavs will be all the better for making this move.
