Raptors GM Bobby Webster confirmed post-game Saturday that all three would not be getting rings. “Its not an easy decision,” Webster began, “but, to be honest I think it’s standard. I mean we did our homework, we talked to teams and I think – I don’t remember – there was maybe one scenario where a team offered one. I think it was Anderson Varejao in Golden State but I think it was a really unique circumstance.”
Something else I assumed about Varejao: his NBA career is over after 13 seasons, mostly with the Cavs and then parts of two years with the Warriors. We’ll see on that, but Varejao, 36, said his contract is up and he’s wondering what’s next. “I am focused on the World Cup, and trying to do my best with Brazil, and trying to help Brazil accomplish something big, but it wouldn’t be bad to come back to Cleveland,” Varejao said, smiling.

Don’t misread — the Cavs have not shown interest in their former power forward, the one Clevelanders called “Wild Thing” for his Sideshow Bob hairdo and frenetic energy on the court. Nor is Varejao necessarily looking for a training camp invite from an NBA team; he’s thinking more along the lines of being added to a roster afterward, as an end-of-bench guy who can mentor younger players.
Brazil will travel to China having a veteran team which can’t be underestimated. Rafael Hettsheimeir was the last cut from the pre-selection roster and many familiar names still have gas on their tank. The 12 players selected by coach Alexander Petrovic are the following: Marcelinho Huertas (Iberostar Tenerife) Rafa Luz (MorBanc Andorra), Yago Mateus (Paulistano), Didi Louzada (New Orleans Pelicans), Alex Garcia, Vitor Benite ( San Pablo Burgos), Leandro Barbosa (Minas Tenis), Marquinhos (Flamengo), Bruno Caboclo (Memphis Grizzlies), Anderson Varejao (Flamengo), Cristiano Felicio (Chicago Bulls), Augusto Lima (San Pablo Burgos).
Storyline: World Cup
In his first week in Cleveland when he went to Sushi Rock in Cleveland for dinner with Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Varejao had a little trouble communicating what he wanted to eat because his English wasn’t great and Ilgauskas wasn’t fluent in Spanish or Portuguese. “I was trying to speak English and trying to say some words in Spanish to see if Z knew what I was saying,” Varejao said. “Then we just decided to just order a couple of beers. And I tell you what, man, at the end of the night our conversation was great. I could understand Z perfectly. All we needed was a couple of beers.”
