timbervolves and cavs trade rumor
« on: January 06, 2013, 11:52:25 AM »
The Cavaliers and Timberwolves have discussed a trade involving Anderson Varejao, according to Cavs writer Bob Finnan. Varejao's name constantly appears in trade rumors, but this is sourced from a reliable beat writer. "Minnesota would probably want the Cavs to take back forward Derrick Williams, which could be a deal-breaker," Finnan writes. "The Cavs could have interest in center Nikola Pekovic ... Before anyone gets excited, forward Kevin Love is not available." There's nothing imminent to worry about here, but file this away for future reference. Varejao, meanwhile, is targeting a return on Wednesday from his lingering knee injury.

Bad trade for Sota. letting Pekovic go for someone you already have is stupid. I'll Derrick Williams only for a pick or something.

If I am understanding this trade correctly, the Wolves want to do this deal due to probably being shot down by Pekovic for an extension. He might want more money than what they are offering. If not I don't really see how this is smart, they aren't close to being contenders yet. Maybe someone else can chime in with their thoughts.

Wait, does that say Minn wants the Cavs to take Williams? The number two pick player?

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

Yeah, the one who is on the bench playing 17 minutes a game.
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

Sounds like a Jeff Green type. :-\

A swap of Varejao for Pekovic looks like a lateral move for both teams. Not sure how it makes sense.
