    While the Shaquille O'Neal-to-Cleveland Cavaliers trade talk created lots of buzz over the weekend, there is an obstacle standing in the way of a future Shaq-LeBron pairing: The Phoenix Suns are not going to give O'Neal away merely to save money.

    The Suns, who could save roughly $10 million by sending O'Neal to Cleveland for Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic, also want to gain basketball value in any trade involving O'Neal, according to league sources with knowledge of the team's thinking.

    With Wallace considering retirement and Pavlovic averaging fewer than six points over his six-year career, Cleveland would likely have to strengthen its offer to get O'Neal.

    ESPN says deal is done. This puts tremendous amount of pressure on Lakers to keep Odom and Ariza.

    Good move. 50 percent of Shaq is better then all of Ben Wallace and Sasha.

    Can't say I saw this coming at all. I actually laughed when I heard it.

    But - It'll be interesting to see how the dynamic plays out between Labron and Shaq.

    This clearly was purely financial for the Suns... They're already talking about dumping Sasha and possibly Ben too. I really hope they are able to do something solid with the extra cash because it's not a small move to trade the only saving grace on their team last season.
