The Cavaliers will retire Zydrunas Ilgauskas' No. 11 jersey on March 8 in a game against the New York Knicks at The Q. Most of the details have yet to be worked out and tickets for that game won't be on sale until Dec. 7. But it will be a night to remember as the team salutes one of its most popular players. Ilgauskas a two-time All-Star who is the team's all-time leader in games played (771) total rebounds (5904) offensive rebounds (2336) and blocked shots (1269) is now a special assistant to general manager Chris Grant. Ilgauskas will be the seventh Cavalier to have his number retired and the first since Mark Price's No. 25 in 1999. Other players so honored include Nate Thurmond (42) Bingo Smith (7) Austin Carr (34) Larry Nance (22) and Brad Daugherty (43).
