Anderson Varejao on Media Day
On Tuesday, rumors began to spread about the Cavaliers asking around about trade interest for Anderson Varejao. There’s no indication the Cavaliers have any trade offers, nor is there any indication that they even want to trade Varejao. Just some empty rumors about the Cavaliers keeping their options open.
Cavs GM Chris Grant seems to be the kind of GM who likes talking to other teams and keeping a firm finger on the pulse of the trade market. As well he should. It’s important to know what kind of interest there is, not just for Varejao and other trade targets such as Sessions and Jamison, but for every player on the roster. The only way to make a fully informed plan on how to best rebuild this franchise is to know the value of the assets you hold.
But the rumor did raise an interesting and very difficult question. If there is strong interest in Varejao, would the Cavaliers be wise to trade him?
There are several different schools of thought on this iss...

AROUND THE WEB
Prompted by a discussion which took place earlier in the morning, former Plain Dealer Cavaliers beat writer Brian Windhorst appeared on 850AM WKNR on Tuesday and discussed rumors surrounding the team’s front office and their largest human trade assets in center Anderson Varejao and point guard Ramon Sessions.
Windhorst stated that Chris Grant and management his team are very happy...
As the NBA trade deadline starts to creep up, look for front offices around the league to make a few phone calls to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Just don’t expect someone to pick up right away, at least if inquiring about the availability of Anderson Varejao.
This past week, the 29-year old power forward/center’s name has circulated in some reports as a player who will draw...
Early on in what would end up becoming an eight-point loss to the Utah Jazz, Anderson Varejao decided to try his hand at running the point. Surprisingly, things were going pretty well until he was ironically burned by that damn “pass and crash” rule that he so often takes advantage of. I suppose that serves the notorious flopper right, but I must admit, I was impressed...
Anderson Varejao is about to step back on the trade rumor circuit. For as long as both he and Lebron James were together in Cleveland, Varejao came up in trade rumors because he was the one piece on that roster (other than LeBron) teams coveted. If the Cavs were going to bring talent in, Varejao…
The Cleveland Cavaliers stunned the Phoenix Suns last night as Anderson Varejao and Cavs rookie Kyrie Irving had huge nights. The team work between Varejao and Irving continues to impress. Irving had 26 points last night and the big story is the play of Varejo. The Wild thing was all over the court last night. Anderson had 17 rebounds,8 points and one assist.
Varejao is starting...
Anderson Varejao has three years, $27 million remaining on his contract.
Anderson Varejao is enjoying one of the most productive starts to a season in his career.
You can bet the Cavaliers aren’t the only team taking notice.
Healthy again and attacking the boards and defensive end with his familiar gusto, Varejao could attract significant interest as the March 15 trade deadline approaches. The Cavaliers aren’t believed to [...]
The Cavs didn’t play ANY D last night as the Jazz shot 59.2% from the floor and it did them in. Antawn Jamison (22 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 2 blocked shots) and Kyre Irving (20 points and 5 assists in 27 minutes) led the way for the Cavs in this game. Anderson Varejao also had a solid game as he finished up with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 1 assist. Ramon...
Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson. Here is the video proof. Paul Pierce misses having Delonte West around. By the way, West apologized for his…
Kyrie Irving keyed a second-quarter run, scoring 12 of his game-high 26 and willing the Wine and Gold past the Suns, 101-90, on Thursday night in Phoenix. Antawn Jamison added 23 points and Anderson Varejao snagged 17 boards.
Yesterday went by quietly enough. We talked about Anderson Varejao as a trade option, The Tribe’s free agent options for First Base, and explored why Mike Holmgren couldn’t pull do what the Raiders did with Hue Jackson. When I finished work for the day, I had Pardon the Interruption on in the background while playing with my kids. In the “Big Finish” portion of the show...
