The Cleveland Cavaliers are now 5-23 on the year, and while they may be better than their record indicates, their roster is far from a finished product.
Unfortunately, with a third straight lottery inching closer with each loss, this year's trade season may be the most exciting time for Cavaliers fans. Anderson Varejao once again sees his name connected to trade rumors.
What team wouldn't want a 6'11" center who is playing like an All-Star, leading the league in rebounding and has a decent offensive game?
Cavaliers GM Chris Grant knows this and has proved to be patient with Varejao trade offers in the past, so you can bet it will cost potential suitors a pretty penny to acquire the "Wild Thing."
With Kyrie Irving, Jeremy Pargo, Dion Waiters and C.J. Miles, the Cavaliers are looking good in the the backcourt.
So help must come in the form of young, talented frontcourt players. There are some rumored to be available. And with assets like Varejao and a ton of draft picks, the time is now for the Cavaliers to improve the roster with the intent of making a serious playoff push in 2013-14.
All trades were verified through ESPN's trade machine.
