CLEVELAND (AP) — Anderson Varejão is back with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He signed a 10-day contract to begin a stint to celebrate his 12-year run with the team. The 38-year-old center hasn’t played in the NBA since 2017 with Golden State. The Brazilian agreed to come back and finish this season with the injury-thinned Cavaliers, who are staggering to the finish of another losing season. Varejão could play Tuesday night when the Cavaliers host Phoenix. Cleveland has seven players sidelined with injuries. Varejão played for the team from 2004 to 2016 before he was traded just months before Cleveland won the NBA title.
