Extractions: The roster is now complete. First off, the Cleveland Cavaliers have came to agreement with forward Donyell Marshall. The 32-year old Marshall, played with the Toronto Raptors for the past two seasons, and the Cavs saw up close and personal what Marshall can do. In the three times Cleveland faced Marshall, he averaged 15.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and shot nine of 19 from long range. In March, Marshall tied the NBA record for most three-pointers made in a game with 12. He should step right in as the starting power forward for the team. The deal is for four years but the actual dollar mount has not been released. Next, sources say that the Cavs have also reached an agreement with Lithuanian point guard Sarunas Jasikevicius. Jasikevicius, a close friend of Zydrunas Ilgauskas, has been highly sought after this summer, with him already turning a deal down to the Boston Celtics. The Indiana Pacers were reportedly in the mix as well but it looks like Jasikevicius is heading to Cleveland. The team has shown interest in Damon Stoudamire and Marko Jaric but Jasikevicius has been there man. If the deal is complete, the gutsy point guard will also provide some outside shooting for the club and the combination of scores brought on this summer will help free the game up for LeBron James. So how did the Cavs sign both? With about $6 million left in cap space after signing Larry Hughes and keeping Ilgauskas, Cleveland likely had to add the money up over several years to keep the new recruits happy. If Marshall's deal starts at $4 million and Jasikevicius is at 2, with maximum increases the two will get the money they sought. With the big spending now done, here's what the Cavs roster looks like, assuming the deal with Jasikevicius is finalized

He averaged 12.4 points and 3.6 assists. by Alex Baldinger July 28, 2005 For Sarunas Jasikevicius, the road to the NBA has taken him from College Park, through Europe and the Middle East and finally to Indiana. The former Terrapin swingman, who played for Maryland coach Gary Williams from 1994 to 1998, has agreed to a three-year contract with the Indiana Pacers following a highly successful professional career overseas where his teams have won the past three Euroleague titles. Jasikevicius, 29, came to Maryland from Lithuania to pursue an education and a basketball career. His four years on the team were solid, yet unspectacular. He was a sound passer and outside shooter. In his final year with the team, Jasikevicius started all 32 games and averaged 12.4 points and 3.6 assists per game playing alongside Laron Profit, Rodney Elliott, Obinna Ekezie and Terrell Stokes. He also made 39 percent of his three pointers, the best percentage of any starter.
