BREAKING NEWS: ESPN's Chris Broussard says Shaq going to Cleveland

The deal has been struck, apparently, as ESPN the Magazine's Chris Broussard reports Shaquille O'Neal is going to Cleveland in a three-player deal, pending approval of the owners. Cleveland will send Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic to Phoenix for the former Heat center. This changes the Eastern Conference mathematics greatly, and may factor into whether Pat Riley will want to build for Dwyane Wade next year or perhaps hold off until the Big Aristotle is one year older. Oh baby, that NBA Hot Stove is Hot Hot right now.
