Sam Amico's post on Cleveland Cavaliers | Latest updates on Sulia
The Celtics, ranked 29th in rebounding, do have a strong interest in Cavs' Anderson Varejao, but the question is
what could Celtics offer that the Cavs would want? (And don't say Jared Sullinger. Cavs didn't have an interest in him on draft night and likely still don't.)
That's the trouble with trading Varejao. Teams with a strong interest don't really have the assets to offer -- or more specifically, the assets the Cavs are seeking.
That's because teams with a strong interest would want Varejao to be the final piece. That means not giving up any of your other key pieces.
If the Cavs are going to trade Varejao, they want good young talent and a first-round pick. Not many contenders, outside of the Thunder, own those type of assets.
