Pros and Cons of Cleveland Cavaliers Keeping Anderson Varejao
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The saga of Anderson Varejao continues, even as he's currently sidelined until March or even later.

The truth is, the Cleveland Cavaliers still have a big decision to make on their star center and his future with the team.

Varejao has proven he's capable of coming back from injuries before and was playing the best basketball of his career this season in leading the NBA in rebounding at 14.4 boards a game.

His injury this season means it's unlikely Varejao will be dealt at this year's trade deadline, but he could still very well be moved in the offseason.  As it stands, Varejao has two years and roughly $18 million on his contract after this season, with the second year being a team option.

Contending teams will still be calling about Varejao, likely hoping his asking value has dropped now with his most recent injury.

The question remains: Should the Cavs keep Varejao throughout their rebuilding process or look to trade him while his value is still fairly high?
