Cavaliers-varejao-reacts
According to Sam Amico, who can usually be trusted on all things Cleveland Cavaliers-related, the Celtics have expressed strong interest in Anderson Varejao. From Amico’s Sulia:The Celtics, ranked 29th in rebounding, do have a strong interest in Cavs’ Anderson Varejao, but the question is what could Celtics offer that the Cavs would want?
