we already know what Varejao is, and is worth (certainly not his contract btw)...but Fields at the earlier part of the yera was compared to John Havlichek by other gms (me personally I'd say current Grant Hill)...so yeah

First half of the season Landry Fields wasn't worth more around the league than Anderson Varejao?

YOU have got to be kidding me.

well Mike D'Antfailure isn't that good at developing players... he made Gallinari stand on the 3 point line most of the game and didn't run too many plays for him...he did the same with Fields.

Fields is an excellent ball handler...he needs to have plays ran for him rather than be relegated as a spot up shooter.

It''s also a confidence issue and needing to not defer to Carmelo even when good scoring opportunities present themself for him. Nothing that can't be fixed.

It's not like D'Antoni came in at midseason. Fields place on the team changed. The spacing was different, the ball movement was different. Melo catching the ball and then holding onto it for 12 seconds before he makes a predictable move doesn't exactly make for a balanced offense. He needs to work on his spot up shooting, because that's basically what he's going to be getting.

I think you are underestimating his value, especially as a Heat fan. He is literally exactly what you need... A bigger more athletic and younger version of Udonis Haslem... And you saw what his return did for your team.

My bullshit detector is going off the charts right now.

First of all, Varejao is owed 25,2 million over the next three seasons which is significantly more than 7 million a year.

Secondly: defensive specialist? Defensive specialist?! Are you fukcing kidding me?

His defense is pretty weak. He's a below average and generally weak rebounder. He can run the floor relatively well because he's light, weak and not actually 7 feet tall.

I think you are mistaking the term "defensive specialist" for "hustle player". A defensive specialist is someone who is not good at offense but elite on defense. A hustle player is someone who can't do anything will but provides decent energy and effort. Which describes Varejao more accurately?

And he is horribly overpaid. To compare: Kwame Brown had a pretty Varejao-esque season this year, and Kwame was earning the minimum. Vaj is doing decent on the boards because the Cavs have no one else.
