    Thoughts on who might offer what for him? Was thinking OKC could be a fit but this article says they are not in pursuit (which may or may not be right).


    My "random Rockets trade idea" would be something like TJones, Pat and Morris for Varejao and Casspi.

    on paper only, because with varejao, it's only a matter of when he will be injured.

    He can't stay healthy. It's a damn shame, but there it is. Keeps getting injured and he's 30. Someone will take a chance on him, but I hope it isn't the Rockets. Been there, done that.

    While he's playing great, he's simply not somebody we should want or need at this point in time.

    We are clearly rebuilding and trying to develop our youth. Patterson is having a bit of a coming out party lately, and to trade him away for an aging 30 year old in Varejao when our team isn't close to competitive for a title, it just doesn't make any sense.

    Not to mention giving up 2 other quality prospects in Jones and Morris (also one of more reliable bench players) is an even steeper price to pay.

    It just isn't something the Rockets should do, nor do I think they will do it.

    Having said that, if a team like the Lakers, Thunder, Spurs, or any other contender make a move for them, that'd be a great deal. He's a seriously solid player.

    Hope it's not us, but I'd like to see the Cavs pick up some youth/draft picks for him.

    Varejao is on a tear. He is so far from his career averages right now he has got to come back to earth. Never buy High.

    Yeah and the Cavs would take a few minutes to stop laughing and then hang up on you.

    Yeah, so basically I wouldn't do the trade unless it was a robbery. And weirder trades have happened in NBA history

    I'd rather have either a stretch 4 to help with spacing or a legit offensive post player that can hit the 17footer. We already have Omer who can board, get garbage buckets, and play great D. Varejao would be too much of the same thing down low.

    They would be silly to trade him at point, especially with the shortage of quality bigs.

    It might work out if you kind of stagger their minutes so they only play about 15 minutes a game together. Neither of them are 35mpg type guys, Cleveland is crazy to be playing Varejao as much as they are, just asking for another injury.
