Take one look at the comments section on recent posts on Project Spurs, specifically the one about the San Antonio Spurs possibly calling up James Anderson and you'll find an ongoing meme. Spurs fans want some size at either the power forward or center position. It seemed like a bad joke when Spurs coach Gregg Popovich mentioned Cory Joseph rejoining the team with Stephen Jackson joining Kawhi Leonard on the Spurs' injured ranks. Spurs fans feel the team already has enough six foot nothing guards so it seemed like the return of small ball until the news that Anderson could be called up and the Spurs' interest in yet another Frenchman, Mickael Pietrus. But for those Spurs fans looking for another big to join the team, and I'm not talking about Eddy Curry here, there are a few players on the trade block, according to HoopsWorld. Apparently, regardless of the fact that Anderson Varejao is having a great season, averaging 14 points and 13 rebounds per game, the Cleveland Cavaliers are still looking at moving the Brazilian big man. The Cavaliers feel rookie Tyler Zeller can take over at center, but bad news for Spurs fans, the Cavaliers are looking for some value in return for Varejao, especially in the variety of younger players on rookie contracts. It also seems like Luke Walton would have to be a part of any trade for him. League sources said bluntly, that anything involving Varejao is also going to have to move out Luke Walton and his $6 million ending contract and return youth and draft picks. But fret not, Spurs fans. Another player both Trevor Zickgraf and I are high on could also be available as the trade deadline gets closer. The Bobcats would love to move Tyrus Thomas and, believe it or not, there were some teams around the draft that at least considered it as part of a bigger deal, mainly because the Cats were dangling the draft pick that became Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Thomas has put up pedestrian numbers in a reserve role for the Bobcats this season, but you can't teach athleticism or height and Thomas has both of those. Thomas' current contract could scare enough teams away, but a creative GM could find a way to make it happen, even though there are better odds on Antonio McDyess coming out of retirement for a second stint in silver and black. The same HoopsWorld article also mentioned Spurs forward DeJuan Blair among the players that could be moved soon. Even though Blair has turned things around and has earned some starts, the site still says Blair's days are numbered in San Antonio.
