The Cavaliers have received calls from a few teams inquiring about the availability of Anderson Varejao, tweets ESPN.com's Marc Stein. However, the 29-year-old's play this season has earned him "near-untouchable status," according to Stein.
Through his first 22 games, Varejao is averaging career highs in points (10.8) and rebounds (11.9) per game, while his rebound rate of 21.7% ranks third in the NBA. The longtime Cav will earn $7.7MM this year and is Cleveland's only non-rookie under contract through the 2014/15 season.
Varejao's strong play this season, along with the Cavaliers' status as a rebuilding club, had led to some recent speculation about the possibility of a trade. Although it looks like they don't intend to make him available, Varejao could potentially net the Cavs multiple draft picks in a deal.
