Cavs Should Ask For: SG Jeremy Lamb, PF Perry Jones, 2013 first-round pick (via Toronto Raptors)
This would be a great haul for the Cavs should they pull it off.
The Thunder's young talent is so plentiful they have a whole other garden of young talent growing behind it. This is where the Cavs come in.
OKC is one of the best teams in the league, but that doesn't mean they couldn't use a little help.
If there's a weakness on OKC, it's the center position. Kendrick Perkins just hasn't been the same since the trade over from Boston, and this season he's putting up a measly 4.7 points and 5.1 rebounds a game to go along with an 8.84 PER.
An upgrade could definitely be used.
Since trading James Harden, the Thunder have acquired even more assets that would better serve a rebuilding team like the Cavs.
With all of Jeremy Lamb's skills, he's still struggling to find minutes on such a deep Thunder team. Perry Jones faces the same dilemma, and could benefit from increased playing time on the Cavs.
The Thunder also own what could be a top-five pick in the 2013 NBA draft from the James Harden trade to Houston that was originally acquired from the Toronto Raptors for Kyle Lowry. The pick is top-three protected, but isn't likely to fall that low.
If Cleveland can get a top-five pick and two young, talented players in Lamb and Jones, the Cavs should gladly send Varejao to Oklahoma City.
