Lebron James has a new teammate...

Everyone's been saying that Lebron James needs some support... and he just got it. Antawn Jamison was traded to the Cleveland Cavs in a three-team trade.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reached agreement on a six-player, three-team trade that lands them former All-Star forward Antawn Jamison(notes), league sources with knowledge of the talks told Yahoo! Sports.

The Cavaliers are sending center Zydrunas Ilgauskas,(notes) a first-round pick and the draft rights to Emir Preldzic to the Wizards. The Wizards also will receive Al Thornton(notes) from the Los Angeles Clippers. The Cavaliers will get point guard Sebastian Telfair(notes) from the Clippers. The Wizards will send Drew Gooden(notes) to the Clippers.

Antawn's career stat line?
19.9 points per game
8.8 rebounds

While I'm not thrilled about his apparent lack of passing ability, what the Cavs really need is somebody to take the scoring pressure off of Lebron, who is a much more dangerous player when he has scorers he can dish to. Antawn isn't going to act like the alpha dog on the team either since he's playing with the best basketball phenom since Jordan, he'll know his spot.

This makes the Cavs very, very dangerous.
