Leon Powe Interview: "There was no offer from Boston."

What happened with Boston?  Why did you decide to sign with the Cavs?

There was no offer from Boston.  I waited a while, about a month or two, because I love Boston, I love the fans, I wanted to be there, but nothing happened.  Then Cleveland made their offer, and I had nowhere else to go, so I gave them my word that I’d go there.  You know, I’m the kind of person… I never go back on my word.
