Anderson Varejao could attract trade interest

Anderson Varejao

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 be shopping the fan favorite, but contenders looking for an energetic big man will no doubt call the rebuilding franchise with offers.

Varejao and backup point guard Ramon Sessions figure to generate the most attention. Coach Byron Scott asked specifically about the center Tuesday said he wouldn’t be in favor of trading him.

“It would have to be an unbelievable person to get back,” Scott said. “I look at him as one of the guys you look at and say, ‘He’s not going anywhere.’ I just feel he’s that valuable and feel that strongly about him and what he means to this team.”
