Varejao is signed through 2015 for less than $10 million per season, which makes the veteran big man a desirable acquisition for a playoff contender.
Kevin Love made it well known that he wanted the Timberwolves to upgrade its roster. If Love and Varejao played side-by-side, Minnesota would arguably have the best rebounding frontline in the NBA.
If the Cavaliers do decide to trade Varejao, they will still have Tristan Thompson, Cleveland’s No. 4 pick in 2011 draft and Tyler Zeller, who was selected No. 17 overall by Dallas in this year’s draft.
Could this potentially be the 5-18 Cavaliers’ last transaction in their current youth movement, or is there more to this story regarding Varejao ?
Stay tuned as this story develops.
