Cavaliers' Anderson Varejao Trade Rumors Heating Up

Anderson Varejao may not be a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers for much longer.  Trade talks involving the 30-year old forward/center are expected to heat up.  There could be numerous teams with interest in Varejao to fill injury holes or just improve their low post presence.

According to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Varejao is leading the NBA in rebounding which could make him a hot commodity.  With the Cavaliers once again struggling this season, the team may look to make some deals to help improve the team for the long-term.


Varejao is currently playing in his ninth NBA season.  He has spent his entire career with the Cavaliers.  He was part of the teams that were perennial contenders under the leadership of LeBron James.  Now, though, he may be the Cavaliers best player.

Varejao has averaged 15.1 points per game this season - a career-high.  He has also averaged 15.3 rebounds per game - also a career-high.  These are the types of numbers that will lead to trade talks.  Teams in need of a big men will certainly come calling the Cavaliers.  However, the question is still whether Cleveland can get enough in return to let Varejao go.  That remains to be seen.
