CLEVELAND (AP) Best known for his wild hair and hustle, Anderson Varejao's heart and hard work got him a new contract with the Cavaliers.
Cleveland signed its starting center to a contract extension on Friday. Terms of the deal were not immediately confirmed, but the sides had been discussing a three-year, $30 million contract.
Varejao was in the final year of a six-year contract he signed in 2008. He's making $9.7 million this season and would have been eligible to become a free agent this summer before the Cavs decided to lock him up for a few more seasons.
