Default Varej„o returning to the cavs?

Quote:
The Charlotte Bobcats appear poised to sign big man Anderson Varejao to an offer sheet, although that's a long way from actually having Varejao on their roster.

A Brazilian publication, UOL Sporte, quoted Varejao as saying he's signing a three-year offer sheet with the Bobcats.

Varejao is a restricted free agent with the Cleveland Cavaliers. That means the Cavs can match any offer another team makes for him, and most likely they would.

The Bobcats figure to be offering the mid-level exception, which represents a first-year salary of $5.36 million this season. A player signing for the mid-level must sign for a minimum of three years, but the player can get an opt-out, making him an unrestricted free agent after two seasons.

If the Cavs match, that precludes the Bobcats and Cavs from doing a sign-and-trade that would exchange Varejao for Charlotte players. Cleveland general manager Danny Ferry has made it clear he intends to match offers for Varejao and a 3-year, mid-level deal actually represents less than the best offer the Cavaliers have made (at least 3 seasons with a total value in excess of $20 million, with no opt-out for the player).

wow, Varej„o screwed himself out of some money lol.

Wow the Cavs wanted him to sign a 5 year deal. Him signing a 2 year (since 3rd is player option) means the team has screwed itself. Also their last offer to him for a short contract was 1.2 and this averages at 6 per over those two seasons

Dude. You need to keep up. The Cavs didn't actually offer Varejo 1.2mil with the honest thought that he'd sign for that little. The 1 year, 1.2mil contract offer, was the league's "qualifying offer".

The Cavs had to offer him that as a minimum to keep him as a restricted free agent. It was basically just their way of saying they were going to start negotiations.

The only positive for Varejo accepting the 1.2 mil qualifying offer was he would have only had to play 1 year with the Cavs, and then he could be a free agent.

The 3 year deal Charlotte offered and Varejo now has to honor is less than the Cavs actual 3 year offer. The difference of course is the 3rd year is optional now, but none of this means the Cavs lost.

Now they can use Varejo now, while we're hurting with injuries, and in two years they can have him off the books. He clearly didn't want to stay in Cleveland without being paid an absorbent amount of money, so the best thing is to give him a chance to leave.
