The 2015 NBA champion Golden State Warriors are planning something new for the team’s strategy.  The Warriors agreed to sign the free agent center Anderson Varejao on Sunday for the rest of the season. However, the team policy, terms and agreement were not disclosed so far. A person inside this process confirmed that Varejao will be a new addition in  Warriors’ squad.

He is one of the most popular players for the Cavaliers. Warriors are targeting to obtain some benefits.  They waived the ineffective Jason Thompson to make room for Varejao, who has shown some significant progress in this season as he dropped out of the rotation in Cleveland. His so-far career is averaged of 7.6 points, 1.2 assists in 25 minutes, 7.5 rebounds in over 591 matches for the Cleveland Cavaliers. This season of NBA, the center played 31 games for the Cavaliers and averaged 2.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 10 minutes before being sent to Portland. The Brazilian will add much needed size to the Warriors. Golden State decided to release Jason Thompson, who averaged 2.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 28 games this season. This creates an open roster spot for Anderson Varejao. Thompson was acquired by the Warriors in July from 76ers.

The NBA champion Golden State Warriors were in need of an additional contributor at the front line despite their 49-5 record. The Warriors’ forward Festus Ezeli has recently recovered from arthroscopic knee surgery. Another major player, Andrew Bogut has been suffering an Achilles tendon injury of right leg. Varejao will certainly provide some depth in Warriors’ suddenly thinned frontcourt.  The Varejao deal with Portland was completed on Thursday before the trade deadline ends. It was actually a part of a three-team swap process,  that landed Channing Frye from Orlando Magic to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Portland Blazers promptly dropped Varejao to the Warriors, although there are nearly $14 million guaranteed money left on his contract.
