The Shaq-to-Cleveland talks have heated up once again

CBS Sports.com's Ken Berger, along with others, is reporting that the on-again, off-again trade talks that would send Shaquille O'Neal to the Cavs are on... again.

The deal would send Shaq to the Cavs in exchange for Cleveland's first-round draft pick, Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic. It is rumored that Wallace may be set to retire and take a buyout, which would make this cap friendly deal even friendlier for the Suns.

All signs point to the Big Diesel/Aristotle/Cactus/etc. heading somewhere before tomorrow night's draft is completed, with Cleveland being the most likely destination. It seems like a final effort by the Cavs to get the pieces in place for a title run before possibly losing LeBron James in 2010.
