Jamison was stunned the Cavs would deal the 22-year-old Hickson.
"He’s a great talent," Jamison said at an appearance in North Carolina. "Hopefully this move will be what he needs to take things to the next level, but it was definitely surprising. It was a logjam (at power forward). With who we took with the fourth pick, that created it. (Hickson) has such of an upside. I guess I was really a big fan of him. I thought he was going to be one of those guys who actually got it. They wanted to go in a different route."
Great words from a veteran PF who has seen it all in the NBA.
