Warriors center Anderson Varejao will not accept a championship ring from the Cleveland Cavaliers if offered one, reports Fox Sports’s Sam Amico.

Varejao played against the Cavaliers with the Warriors in last season’s NBA Finals, but began the season with Cleveland. The center played 31 games for the Cavs before he was traded, waived and then signed by Golden State.

Varejao played in Cleveland from 2004 until his departure in February. Originally a second-round pick of the Magic, Varejao played in 591 regular season games across 12 seasons with the Cavaliers. 

In his career, Varejao has averaged 7.4 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

The Warriors re-signed Varejao to a one-year deal earlier this month.
