Varejao Intends to Join Brazil in Olympics
The easy thing for Anderson Varejao to do — and some might say the smart thing — is to forget about returning this season. The Cavaliers’ center could spend the summer healing up, doing nothing more strenuous than working on his tan on some Brazilian beach.
Not Varejao. As soon his broken right wrist heals, he wants to rejoin the Cavaliers. And as long as he’s healthy, he also plans to represent Brazil in the Summer Olympics.
Fans probably love the idea of Varejao wanting to earn his paycheck, but might be wary of him playing for Brazil. He suffered an ankle injury playing for the national team in the summer of 2010.
