If he does have a quad tear as Brazilian media has reported, then the Cavs just failed to sell high...again. They could've had Amare, but balked when Phoenix wanted Hickson.
Bolded is why I never blame LeBron for leaving. They didn't do it and then they didn't play Hickson, who was playing very well for them, at all in the playoffs. Joke. Absolutely ridiculous.
Yes. Should have traded him high. He's a good player of course but he's the type of player that doesn't help this team much. Might as well give Zeller and Thompson as much PT as possible and tank for lotto picks.
On the plus side, this is good news for Cleveland. Losing Varejao will cost them pointless victories and help them improve their lottery position. Who are top 5 pick in this year draft anyways? I just dont see a superstar..maybe Shabazz mohamend
They should be a near-certainty for another top five pick now.
Cody Zeller should be a top pick. His game will translate very well to the NBA, where PGs know how to get a big the ball.
If you had both the Zeller brothers you would have some of the most mobile bigs in the NBA. Legit 7 footers too.
