It’s unclear what kind of interest Varejao, who is averaging just 1.3 points and 1.9 rebounds in 6.6 minutes per game this season, might attract. He’s not really a functional NBA player anymore and is probably closer to a vaudeville performer these days. But veteran frontcourt depth will never go out of style, especially now that buyout and 10-day contract season is just about upon us. And what a storyline it would be if Varejao were to reunite with this longtime former team of his.
