Anderson Varejão back with Cavs in player development role

CLEVELAND (AP) — Anderson Varejão has bounced back to the Cavaliers. One of the most popular players in Cleveland’s history, Varejão has been hired as a player development consultant and global ambassador for the team that he played with for 14 NBA seasons. Known for his hustle and frizzy hair, Varejão was with the Cavs from 2004-15. He spent two seasons with Golden State before returning to Cleveland after a three-year break. Varejão has stayed connected to the organization, making periodic appearances at practices and games. In his new role, Varejão will help develop players on the floor while also working with coaches and front office members during the season. He’ll also travel to broaden the team’s global reach, especially in Latin America.
