“At the center of any dealings remain Ramon Sessions and Antawn Jamison, although both players have expressed an interest in remaining with the Cavs through the deadline. Jamison’s $15 million expiring contract is drawing interest from teams interested in dumping salary, which is precisely what the Cavs would like. But Jamison has remained steadfast in his belief he’ll finish the season in a Cavs uniform.” [Jason Lloyd]

“General manager Chris Grant is trying to acquire first-round draft picks and young, talented pieces that will ensure the Cavaliers won’t be hovering around the playoff cutoff line in coming seasons.” [Tom Reed]

“I’m highly in favor of keeping Sessions unless we get a pick in the 10-15 range. There’s simply no reason to ditch him just because he’s another point guard as Irving is. I’m bothered when people worry so much about ‘positions.’ How often does a team actually ever truly have a 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on the court at the same time? Is it so awful that Irving and Sessions should actually share the court together? I say no. And I absolutely love when they play together because I like to see our best and third best players get as many minutes as possible.” [John of FTS]

“Cavaliers coach Byron Scott says center Anderson Varejao’s broken right wrist will not be re-examined by doctors until next week. Varejao has been out since Feb. 10, when he broke his wrist during a game against Milwaukee. The Cavs expected Varejao to miss from 4 to 6 weeks and were initially optimistic he would return sooner. One of the NBA’s top rebounders, Varejao continues to wear a wrap on his wrist. He has not yet resumed basketball activities and has been limited to working on his stamina.” [Associated Press]
