The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed on a deal to acquire former All-Star forward Antawn Jamison in a three-way trade involving the Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers, according to multiple reports.

Yahoo! Sports reported the Cavs are sending center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, a first-round pick and the draft rights to Emil Preldzic to the Wizards. Washington also will receive Brian Skinner and Al Thornton from the Clippers. The Cavaliers will get point guard Sebastian Telfair from the Clippers, and the Wizards will send the Clippers Drew Gooden, who will then be bought out.

Jamison, 33, is averaging 20.5 points and 8.8 rebounds this season. The 6-foot-9, 235-pounder did not play in the Wizards’ game against Minnesota on Wednesday. Jamison left the arena as the game was starting and declined to comment to reporters.

Stoudemire: Chances of trade “50-50”

The probability of Amare Stoudemire staying put with the Phoenix Suns has increased now that Cleveland reportedly acquired Antawn Jamison.

Stoudemire, who played against Dallas last night, rates his chances of being traded before today’s trade deadline as 50-50.
