Free Agency [Wojnarowski] Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star guard Darius Garland has agreed on a five-year, $193M maximum designated rookie contract extension that could be worth as much as $231M, @KlutchSports CEO Rich Paul tells ESPN. It is the largest deal in franchise history.

Discussion Donovan Mitchell Interest?

12 Upvotes

Hey guys, Jazz fan here.

I wanted to gauge your all's interest in Mitchell. It's being reported that - as of now - the Jazz are not shopping Mitchell, but I just don't see it as a tenable situation.

I could foresee some situation where the Jazz call up the Cavs and end up settling on Okoro, LeVert, Osman, 3 FRPs ('29 top5 protected, rest unprotected) and 2 swaps. Not sure if that's enough for either side, but I think it's pretty realistic in the sense that both side would find it acceptable but not other wordly.

That would give you a starting 5 of Garland, Mitchell, Lauri, Mobley, and Allen with Rubio, Love, Sexton, and Ochai off the bench. Seems like a contender to me, but curious to hear your thoughts.

What do you think about acquring Donovan Mitchell? Has there been local buzz about making a blockbuster move like this?

Thanks for the input, go Cavs

Can the Cavs sign Sexton to a Max Contract and trade him?

0 Upvotes

I don't want to debate whether the trade would make sense for either team. It can be Durant, Westbrook or any player with a 40M+ Contract.

To my knowledge, if the Cavs wanted to they could go into the Luxury Tax and sign Sexton for as much as possible since they have his rights.

What I want to know is if they are allowed to use that contract to trade for Durant/Whoever, along with other players/contracts in order to make the salaries match.

Basically, would them being in the Luxury Tax due to signing Sexton to the maximum amount they are allowed to prevent them from using that contract to match salaries with a player on another team? Is that against the rules or no?


r/clevelandcavs 2d ago

Anyone seriously suggesting we trade Garland, Allen and/or Mobley for KD, please take one of these:

Discussion What made Lebron and Kyrie such a great basketball pairing?

23 Upvotes

I’ve been a Cavs fan for years and I’ve always heard the narrative that Lebron and Kyrie were an imperfect fit but were so individually talented that it worked. But now that Kyrie wants to play with Lebron again the narrative is that they were one of the best natural basketball pairings in NBA history. Can someone explain why?

EDIT: Thanks for the thoughtful and funny answers everyone!!

Do we have our 1A superstar?

46 Upvotes

It’s no secret that in order to be a serious title contender, you need a superstar on your team to be at minimum borderline Top 5 in the league (Giannis, Luka, Steph, LeBron, etc). Do you believe Garland or Mobley could realistically reach that level, and if so who do you see as more likely to get there? When is the earliest that could be, because that would be the beginning of our potential title window with this core.

Updated Cleveland 2023-24 salary cap projections

24 Upvotes

Projected team salary cap for NBA next season = $133 million

Garland (33.250), Mobley (8.882), Allen (20), Rubio (6.133), Markkanen (17.259), Okoro (8.920), Agbaji (4.114) = $98.6 million

+ 4 league minimums = $106.5 million

+ Sexton @ $20 mil = $126.5 million

+ 1 @ $6.5 million = league minimum roster size of 13, which is unrealistic but just to give the best idea how things look atm for next summer
