Anderson Varejao had a couple conversations with general manager Koby Altman throughout the season. Varejao was in Cleveland, where he still lives. He never sold his house, not even during his brief stint with the Golden State Warriors or the year-plus when he was in Brazil for what seemed like the final stop in his accomplished basketball career. Then, about five days ago, Varejao received a phone call from Altman.
“He said, ‘Andy let’s do this. We’re gonna bring you back,’” Varejao recalled Tuesday morning, shortly after his signing became official. “It was a moment that I took to myself, like, ‘Wow, it’s really about to happen.’ It feels right. Cleveland is home for me. I love the city, I love the fans, I love the organization. I’m happy to be back. It’s not just the end of this season, it’s the 12 years that I’ve been here, that all counts to me. I was always ready to come back to be honest. I’m excited. It feels like I never left.”
