Starter: Anderson Varejao
This is a no-brainer given the lack of talent Cleveland has at this position. Varejao was averaging a career high in points, rebounds and minutes last season before tearing a tendon in his ankle.
Word is Varejao spent most of his offseason working on his offensive game, something that has progressed immensely over previous years.
Role Player: Samardo Samuels
While not technically a true center at 6'9", expect Samuels to see most of his minutes at the center position due his his frame and rebounding abilities. At 260 pounds, Samuels is one of the few Cavaliers that can bang down low, something that isn't in Ryan Hollins or Semih Erden's game.
Don't be surprised if Samuels earns more minutes with his improved game.
Benchwarmer: Ryan Hollins
Hollins might find minutes tough to come by now with a healthy Varejao and quite frankly a better player in Samuels.
Despite this, the Cavs still suffer from a lack of size, so I still see Hollins as part of the 12-man dress team—for now, anyway.
With Semih Erden out with a broken thumb, it's anyone's guess what the center rotation will look like after Varejao.
I'm not sure the Cavaliers know what they have with Erden yet, due to his fragility ever since coming over in a trade from the Celtics. Samuels could have a nice year, but the Cavaliers need, need, need Andy to stay healthy.
