07:10 AM ET 09.16 | On the upside, when Anderson Varejao has played, he has played well -- but he has played only 81 games over the past three seasons. Naturally, he will have some trade value if he can stay healthy. But the Cavs want him to set the defensive tone inside, especially getting back to the excellent team-style defense that he played for Brown. While he was a monster on the boards under Scott, his team defense (switching off his man to defend the hoop) suffered. Of course, that was an issue for the entire team. ... I wonder if the Cavs will try to deal for a small forward during the season, especially with their excess of big men. A key will be if Bynum can play -- that will make it much easier to trade Varejao or someone else.

Another Varejao thread??? Never has so much been written about someone who has done so little.

His trade value is not as high as 2-3 years ago. We all know that he cannot stay healthy.

If this guy can make a lay up, Lebron will probably still be in Cleveland... get rid of him already.

"If Bynum can play"... Too funny. Andrew has his money, so why on earth would anyone think me will play? Injury and lack of heart governs this egotistical whatever....
