Not sure why Cavs center Brendan Haywood is inactive. Only one player has to be inactive (Andy Varejao) since Cavs have only 14 on roster.
So now Brian Hoyer may be interested in returning to Cleveland? Right when they replaced him w/ Anderson Varejao on those Mr Hero billboards

Lakers wouldn't be open to taking Varejao naturally - and Cavs won't deal LBJ/Love - so there was no Jordan HIll workable deal
I'll know the actual details of the 3-way trade shortly - my take is Cavs used Varejao DPE on Iman Shumpert (not official)
