Trade: Cleveland Cavaliers get Donovan Mitchell from Utah

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed Donovan Mitchell from Utah. While the jazz is continuing its squad break, the cavs improve their chances in the Eastern Conference.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed Shooting Guard Donovan Mitchell by trade. This reported ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday evening. This message comes as a surprise, since Mitchell had been associated with the New York Knicks in the past few weeks.

So now the cavs have secured the gifted offensive player. The franchise from Ohio releases three unprotected first-round picks (2025, 2027, 2029), Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton and Ochai Agbaji to Utah. In addition, the jazz receive two pick-swaps in 2026, 2028, which means that Utah can exchange its first-round picks in these two years with those of the CAVs should be more lucrative. Sexton, who was a restricted free agent, signed a new contract for four years and $ 72 million.

With the trade, Cleveland improves its position in the Eastern Conference. Mitchell joins a young and promising core around Point Guard Darius Garland, Forward Evan Mabley and Center Jarrett Allen.

Last season Mitchell came out of the field to 25.9 points per game in litter rates of 44.8 percent and 35.5 percent from the triple line. In addition, the 25-year-old put on an average of 5.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds. With these achievements, Mitchell earned the third all-star nomination in a row.

On the other hand, Utah consistently continues the rebuild. Previously, the jazz had already traded the other all-star of the team, Rudy Gobert.
