The Cleveland Cavaliers will retire Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ number 11 in a ceremony on March 8th according to Cleveland.com’s Mary Schmitt Boyer. Ilgauskas’ number will be the seventh raised to the roof at the Quicken Loans Arena.
Zydrunas ranks in Cleveland’s top five in nearly every statistical category you would want a center to do so. He is the team’s second leading scorer in franchise history with 10,616 points, and its most prolific rebounder.
He is currently general manager Chris Grant’s assistant.
Back in 2008 Andrew broke down the case for Ilgauskas’ jersey retirement.
