Another source said Minnesota recently expressed an interest in Varejao, and with the Timberwolves' array of young talent and draft picks, the Cavs would be willing to listen.
It's true Varejao is out for the year with a torn tendon in his foot, and that has likely deterred a lot of teams (particularly those in the playoff chase) from making a push for him. But the interest is still fairly strong -- despite the fact the Cavs would be more than happy to keep him for the rest of his career.
Basically, Varejao isn't untouchable, but it would take quite an offer to pry him away. If that offer comes, it's more likely to come in June than February.
The contract doesn't bother me. Especially if we can dump Darko.
7.7/8.4/9.1, then a team option for 9.8M.
And he'd only be 31 at the end of his final guaranteed year.
