Pollard signs with Cavs, Andriuskevicius traded

To go along with Drew Gooden, Anderson Varejao, and Donyell Marshall, forward Scot Pollard will be joining the Cavaliers.

Pollard averaged 3.8 points and 4.8 rebounds in 45 games — 32 starts — last season for the Indiana Pacers, his third NBA team. The wild-haired, 6-foot-11, 265-pounder will give the Cavs more inside muscle and can provide needed energy along with Anderson Varejao.

“Adding Scot to our roster gives us more depth, size, toughness and experience,” Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry said. “We believe Scot can be a valuable contributor to our team as we continue to build a championship level team here in Cleveland.”

The Cavs also traded young project Martynas Anriuskevicius to the Bulls for guard Eddie Basden.

Sounds like some decent moves. Pollard will add some playoff experience when it comes time for that next season. At 6’11”, he should be serviceable when it comes to backing up Z at the center position as well. As far as Marty is concerned, he most likely never was going to pan out anyway so let’s see what this Basden guy can do for us in the backcourt.
