Default Newble turns down Cavs to sign with Lakers..

Friday afternoon update: It's official now - http://www.insidehoops.com/lakers-si...e-032108.shtml

Swingman Ira Newble has decided to sign a contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, choosing them over the Cavs.

A source said the Cavs offered Newble a spot on the team Wednesday, but the two sides could not agree on certain terms of his return.

The Cavs traded Newble to the Seattle SuperSonics last month, but never gave away his locker. Newble was eligible to rejoin the Cavs on Tuesday.

The Cavs still have one open roster spot that they may fill by early next week.

We need him. Walton is just too pathetic right now..

Lakers are getting a very underrated player. A true professional. He's always ready to go, regardless if he plays 10 minutes a night or 10 minutes a week. Excellent defender, fundamentally sound, and can hit the occasional open jumper.

He's a very nice player. He's not going to win you ballgames singlehandedly, or do anything flashy, but all any team can ask for out of their bench bunch is that they are ready at all times, and they have a specific job that they can go out there and perform.

i never knew that happened. but anyway this is a great defender, he can defend a 1,2,3, and some 4's. and he can shoot the ball well.
