Cavs Trade JJ Hickson to Sacramento (Updated)

Update: While other blogs are tripping over themselves to explain the mechanics and details of the deal, we have a more important update: Casspi is dating former SI cover girl and supermodel Bar Rafaeli, according to SI. Good trade, Chris Grant. Good trade. And to other Cleveland athletes out there, Casspi has just stepped up the girlfriend game to another stratosphere. Good luck.

With approximately 1,763 power forwards on the roster, and after drafting a guy last week who plays Hickson's position, it was only a matter of time before JJ was handed a ticket out of town by the Cavaliers.

Today they traded JJ Hickson to the Sacramento Kings for Omri Casspi and a future first round pick, according to numerous reports. After being drafted by Sactown, Casspi was the first Israeli player ever to play a game in the NBA, which generally rules.

Hickson, who jumped really high, sometimes rebounded when he felt like it, played occasional defense when the mood struck, and was perhaps best at joking around on the bench, will be missed, except not really.

Some lucky local business skilled at kosher postgame spreads is about to do brisk business with the Wine and Gold.
