Blazers paying Cavs center Anderson Varejao more than anyone in Blazers closing lineup

Cavs center Anderson Varejao had the highest Blazers salary for the 2020-21 season of anyone on the floor, including all five Trail Blazers.

Sound confusing?

Let me explain.

Members of Rip City may recall when the Blazers traded for Varejao at the 2016 trade deadline in return for a Cavaliers 2018 first-round pick. Portland promptly waived and stretched his $9.6 million salary over five seasons through 2020-21.

In the final year of Varejao being on the Blazers cap sheet, he is owed $1.9 million.


On Wednesday, the Blazers finished the game playing Harry Giles, CJ Elleby, TJ Leaf, Kevin Blevins and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson during garbage time. All five Trail Blazers are making less this season than Varejao is owed.

Giles is being paid $1.6 million, Elleby is getting $898k, Hollis-Jefferson is getting $245k while Leaf and Blevins are on two-way contracts.

What did that 2018 first round pick become? Well, it actually got traded again with Cleveland in exchange for the Cavs 2017 first-rounder which the Blazers promptly used on Caleb Swanigan with Kyle Kuzma being selected one pick after.

If Varejao's $1.9 million salary wasn't on the books, the Blazers could have used the bi-annual exception this past summer rather than let it go unused to avoid the luxury tax.

Instead of rejecting his team option ahead of the 2017 offseason, the Blazers stretched it so it still impacted the team five years later to open up cap space during the 2016 offseason. That additional space was used to sign Evan Turner to a 4-year, $70 million contract as an unrestricted free agent. Additionally, the Blazers with re-signed Allen Crabbe (4-years, $75 million), Meyers Leonard (4-years, $41 million) and Maurice Harkless (4 years, $40 million) using bird rights.

Congrats to Varejao for finessing the system.

I'll never forget seeing Varajeo hit a game winning(?) layup

Bron put his arms in a T to celebrate

Varajeo (who made the shot) came and hugged him while LeBron kept his arms in the T formation



beta sh*t

This is pretty much a goodbye from him because he's more than likely retiring completely after the season.

Plus I can see the Cavs giving him an office or ambassador role afterwards, same with Haslem and Miami

I saw this at the bottom of the ticker 2 days ago when I was watching PTI and literally had to rewind my DVR to make sure I wasn't trippin...I was too ashamed to even make a thread about it @



How the fu*k is 38 yr old Andy getting a 10 day? He really trying to get his number retired I see

He's no Big Z but he's definitely forever a fan favorite that brought heart soul and energy to our team. Wish he had been a little better on Defense

I think Harkless might be the only one still in the league
