Trade rumors were swirling involving Omer Asik and Anderson Varejao this week, but the Cavaliers are “not interested in acquiring Asik,” according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal:

Varejao’s name surfaced this week in trade rumors involving the Houston Rockets’ Omer Asik, but a league source told me Friday the Cavs are not interested in acquiring Asik. With Andrew Bynum beginning to flourish, Asik and his $14.9 million salary for next season are not a fit on this team. Varejao’s ability to play both power forward and center makes him a far better fit.

Asik will be moved next week and if the Rockets need a third team to get involved, the Cavs would listen. But Asik won’t be coming to Cleveland.
