Anderson Varejao Trade Value?

I was just wondering what do you think Varejao's value would be through trade. I say this because it appears that Varejao should be on the trading block. The Cavs are obviously in rebuilding mode with their 2 lottery picks and simply Varejao is not worth paying the money he is owed. For a team in rebuilding Varejao is not worth his contract (btw 3 years/25 mil left after this year, additional 4th year team option of 9.9 mil). They definitely should keep Hickson as he's young, athletic, and still on his rookie contract. I do think that Varejao can be an asset for a contender. His size, rebounding, and willingness to take charges definitely would be a hot commodity for teams like Atlanta, Boston, Miami, etc. So my question is what do you think the Cavs could get back in the way of draft picks and young assets, and who do you think might make a move for him? The other option would be to trade Hickson if a team would be willing to take on Baron Davis's contract.

Missing almost an entire

Missing almost an entire season + bad contract = very low value and almost impossible to trade.

Alright, you guys are wrong.

Alright, you guys are wrong. Really wrong.

Anderson Varejao has a nice contract, he makes 7 mil this year and next then a upgrade to 8. He's a great interior defensive player and at center, is a great player. Before he got hurt, he almost averaged a double-double and he's a legit big man (6-11, 7-0). Did I mention he's onlly 28 years old?

He is not a 6th man at all, he's a legit starter.

idea

The only trade I could think of with a playoff team trading for Varejao would be Atlanta. They could do a staright up Marvin for Varejao trade. Marvin's contract is shorter and he still may have some untapped potential and fills a void for Cleveland. The Cavs could then maybe draft Irving and Jonas with their picks. Atlanta would move Horford to power forward and Smith to small forward to start a very tall and very good defensive team, and they need a change because their team right now isnt going to win a champoionship.

Are you insane? Cleveland would say no to that in a heartbeat

i would not trade varejao

i would not trade varejao unless the cavs were getting somethink like a top 2 pick or a superstar or something that may be rediculous but his hustle and size would hurt the cavs badely without him they cant win much as they proved when he was injured most of this year they need more size without him all they have at center is erden and hollins which will just make a repeat aweful season nexyt year i would at least like to see a slight improvement next year !

Gotta agree with BBKnicksfan

Gotta agree with BBKnicksfan here, he actually has lot of value- especially for a contending team that wants to pay the right price for him. Whether people want to admit it or not, he was the second largest part of Cleveland's success when they had Lebron because of his defense, hustle and rebounding. There will be a lot of teams requesting his services in the near future. I think at the very least the Lakers and Heat will at least inquire about his availability.

what i would do if i was the

what i would do if i was the cavs is draft well and if they arent improving considerably by the trade deadline next year consider what they could get for him but untimitely i dont think they should trade him either way unless they can get equal size and talent

with baron davis the cavs

with baron davis the cavs have done considerably better in the miami game they almost lost it when baron was on the bench. varejao was hurt all year and when they got erden he was injured and samuels didnt play that great until recently plus they list lebron all this caused them to only of won i think 14 games so far if they could get derrick williams or harrison barnes then brandon knight or kemba walker then maybe the center named lucas from brazil i think they could improve tremendously probably not make the playoffs but win a lot more than this year i think i would wait and see if they can make a turnaround before giving up the best center they have

Varejo does not have great trade value

Injuries, Contract and One Dimensional Game equals No trade value...sure they could trade him for another bad contract and young player or dump him on a contender but that means they are getting little to nothing back...

Injuries, Contract and One

Injuries, Contract and One Dimensional Game equals No trade value.

- Pretty sure it's one real injury

- He's contract is not terrible. LOOK IT UP before speaking about it

- He's a great defensive player, he rebounds and can give you 10 points. That's better then MOST centers in the NBA

he suffered a severe injury though buddy...

How effective can he really be when he gets back, add in the fact that he makes a lot more than most defensive specialist and then factor in the reality that only contenders would be interested in him(what would they likely offer, bad contracts/aging players and unproven late round prospects)...his trade value is very low my friends, I know how he makes and there aren't many teams/Gm's willing to bite the bullet on the remaining years and dollar amount...someone said he'd be worth a top 5 pick, then someone said he'd be worth a lottery pick, the team that trades a lottery pick for Varejao will regret it...bottom line is he's not worth it...

Kendrick Perkins tore his ACL

Kendrick Perkins tore his ACL and just got 38 mil over 4 years.....so what's you're point.

By the way: Varejao is better then Perkins...by a MILE.

and someone said that he was the 2nd key piece to Cavs success

I'm pretty sure Big Z stretching the floor and pulling the other teams big man out thus allowing Lebron free roam in the paint plus a kick out option...again I could wrong and Varejao coming in off the bench and flopping around was the real cause of the Cavs winning ways....

Varejao has a nice contract

Varejao has a nice contract and will attract contenders with a need for a big man....what the cavs should look for in trade value is young players, expiring contracts, and as many draft picks as they can.

but again they can win well

but again they can win well over 30 games next year if they draft well and dont have tons of injuries all season plus they need size so trading him makes no sense unless your getting a top 3 draft pick or a young big guy who is guaranteed to be just as good
