After the Cavaliers play the Warriors on January 23rd they intend to file paperwork to get Eric Snow declared disabled and thus removed from their roster.

The move will potentially save Clevelane $11 million between saved luxury tax and insurance payments. Because of that impending windfall, the Cavs aren't going to package Snow's expiring contract in any trades.

The Cavaliers are waiting to hear from the league on a disability claim on guard Eric Snow.

Snow is retiring and will not play this season (or again) because of chronic problems with his left knee stemming from an injury last year. If the claim is accepted, the team could save more than $10 million when combining insurance coverage and luxury tax savings.

The Cavaliers are trying to get Eric Snow (left knee) approved for disability retirement, enabling them to clear his $7.3 million off their luxury-tax payroll.

The league could also grant the Cavs an exemption of $3.7 million that could be used toward trades. Snow has been mentioned as a candidate for the Bulls coaching job, and will almost definitely be an assistant coach somewhere next season.

The Bulls are reportedly looking at Eric Snow as a candidate for their vacant head coaching job, despite the fact that he has no coaching experience.

Bobcats coach Larry Brown also wants to hire Snow, but first Snow will have to resolve his contract situation -- the Cavs owe him $7.4 million next season and will likely buy out his contract.

Cavs guard Eric Snow hasn't played since damaging tissue in his knee in late February and he recently admitted that his playing career may have come to an end.

"I’ve probably played my last game," Snow said. He has one year left on his contract, but might retire early and seek a position as a coach.

The Cavaliers announced today that guard Eric Snow is expected to miss at least four weeks because of arthritic-related symptoms in his left knee.

This could open a spot on the roster for guard Sasha Pavlovic, who has missed seven weeks with a foot injury. Pavlovic began practicing this week and could be activated for Wednesday's game in New Jersey.

Eric Snow started for the Cavaliers on Sunday, but finished with one point on 0-of-5 shooting and three assists in 26 minutes.

Snow and Ira Newble (three points on 1-of-6 shooting in 20 minutes) were both in the starting lineup, an indication of just how shallow the Cavs are right now. Neither of these guys will have significant or lasting fantasy value.

Eric Snow made his first start since December for the injury-plagued Cavaliers, and had two points, five assists and five steals in a win over the Hawks.

Snow shouldn't have any value, but with Daniel Gibson, Sasha Pavlovic, Anderson Varejao and Drew Gooden all sidelined, you never know. LeBron James had 26 points, 11 boards and seven assists, while Zydrunas Ilgauskas had 17 points, 11 boards and four blocks to help pick up the slack for the ailing Cavs.

Eric Snow started for the Cavaliers on Saturday because "point guard" Daniel Gibson was recovering from getting bumped in the face a few days after having his wisdom teeth removed.

Snow had only two points and six assists, and his presence in the lineup probably effects Larry Hughes more than anyone. The Cavaliers obviously want to keep Hughes as an offensive presence off the bench, rather than make him an out-of-position starter again, so expect Daniel Gibson to resume starting once he is well enough.

Eric Snow returned from knee surgery and failed to score on Wednesday.

He has no fantasy value as long as he's with Cleveland.

According to several Cavaliers' sources, Eric Snow is being shopped around to teams in search of a veteran reserve point guard.

Snow is recovering from knee surgery, but it looks like he may never play in a Cavs' jersey again. No matter where he lands, he won't significantly impact the fantasy landscape.

Contrary to a report in the Detroit News earlier in the week, Eric Snow has not asked the Cavaliers for a buyout in order to join the Hawks, according to his agent Steve Kauffman.

Snow recently moved his family full-time to Atlanta, however insists he never went to management and asked for a trade. Snow currently provides little fantasy value, however a trade can only improve his stock, so keep an eye on him.
Wed, Nov 14, 2007 09:33:00 AM

The Detroit News reports, "Cavaliers' insiders are starting to believe Eric Snow 's days in Cleveland are numbered...The suspicion is he will ask the Cavs to buy him out of the two remaining years of his contract, which he hopes would allow him to sign with the Hawks."

Snow stands to make $14 million over the next two years. Whether he is bought out or isn't, he doesn't have much fantasy relevance.

Eric Snow, who is recovering from surgery after tearing his meniscus, said his knee is healthy enough to play, but he's going to take it slow. He wants to get some practice time to test out his knee and get into shape after missing all of training camp.

Snow definitely won't land on anyone's fantasy roster this year, and shouldn't significantly effect the value of other Cavaliers guards.
