Recently, the Cleveland Cavaliers completed a trade with the Utah Jazz, in which they received All-Star Donovan Mitchell. For this player, they agreed to give up their rookie Collin Sexton and Lauri Markkanen, and several first-round picks in the deal.
The anonymous source that spoke with Cheddar, the well-known internet broadcasting company, is not authorized to speak publicly until the trade is officially announced.
The Jazz made it known that they are rebuilding by not signing Mitchell and Rudy Gobert for the upcoming season. They would love a trade with New York, but the Knicks extended RJ Barrett which ended any trades discussions. Miami is also looking for a star player like Mitchell, but was not willing to trade certain players to accommodate the Jazz.
Koby Altman, fresh from a vacation in the Mediterranean, got to work and made a deal with LeBron James.

Kyrie Mitchell (2020) is joined by current and future NBA all-stars Darius Garland, Jarrett Allen, and Evan Mobley on the Cavs team. They are also joined by current NBA All-Star Jarrett Allen and veterans Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and Caris LeVert.
Last season, the Cavs finished with a 44-38 record. However, after beating Indiana on Feb. 11th, the Cavs were in a position for second place in the east and just one game behind Miami for a potential playoff berth. Tragically, late season injuries derailed those chances but hope is still evident this coming year.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been rebuilt by Altman, and this business deal will put him in consideration for Executive of the Year. Mitchell has three years left to be on his five year contract, though the last year is a player option. James tweeted that it was “SO TOUGH!!!!! Super Dope.”
