"To me, it will be special to see the warmth of the fans who were great to me as long I was there," Snow said Sunday before the Cavs lost to the New Jersey Nets.
"It will be something to see old faces and some people I have talked to and some I haven't. It's just something I look forward to."
Snow, 31, who backs up starting point guard Jeff McInnis, has not had an entirely smooth transition to his new team. He was suspended for one game this season after a heated argument with coach Paul Silas.
During a game against Detroit on Dec. 16, Snow was called for an eight-second violation and immediately pulled by Silas. After the two exchanged words, Snow was sent to the locker room and didn't return to the game. His suspension cost him approximately $54,000.
Snow said adjusting to a reserve role has been difficult, even though he is trying to look on the bright side.
"I'd rather be a backup on a winning team than one that isn't winning," Snow said. "Every player in this league wants to play more, but you have to fulfill the role the coach has given you."
Silas said the adjustment from starter to reserve can be a difficult one.
"Any time you run a ball club and play 30-some minutes and now you have to come off the bench and make an instant hit, it hasn't been easy for him," Silas said.
Snow is averaging 4.2 points, 3.6 assists and 1.15 turnovers in 21.9 minutes.
Snow said he talks to a number of his former teammates and follows the Sixers regularly.
"I watch them every time I get a chance on the satellite at home," he said. "Whenever we're not playing or traveling, I watch them and root for them."
Wagner update. Cleveland's Dajuan Wagner, a 2001 Camden High graduate, has been on the injured list since Jan. 18 with colitis. He may not return this season.
The Cavaliers didn't pick up the fourth-year option on Wagner's contract, making him a free agent after this season. In 11 games this season, Wagner averaged 4.0 points in 9.3 minutes.
The No. 6 choice in the 2002 draft, Wagner was once looked on as the future of the franchise. But that was before an injury-plagued season last year and James' arrival. Wagner, 22, will get a look from another NBA team, if he can prove he can stay healthy.
"It's a sad thing to me because I really like him and I think he has a place in this league," Silas said. "Because of circumstances, he hasn't had a chance to display it."
Silas said whether Wagner returns this season or not, he's pulling for the two-time Inquirer South Jersey player of the year who once scored 100 points in a game at Camden High.
"I wish the best for him," Silas said. "He has all the skills and tools. Every year, something has happened physically with injuries. I really feel for him."
