Cleveland receives: Jalen Green, Jabari Smith, Ja'Sean Tate & Tari Eason
Houston receives: Donovan Mitchell

Cleveland adds much needed wings to the roster.
Houston goes all in on Mitchell to try to lure Harden.


1.) 27 May 2023 10:02:38
Sounds like Harden may be going to Houston on his own. He's not going to need Mitchell to lure him there.

I just don't think Cleveland should trade Mitchell. He helped change the fabric of that team.

2.) 28 May 2023 07:22:34
Houston doesn't do this without chasing other win now players. In FA? Part 2.

Cleveland Cavaliers dream off-season

-Re-sign Caris LeVert 5 years, $75 million
-S&T Jordan Clarkson 4 years, $60 million, in exchange for Cedi Osman & Isaac Okoro
-Trade two pick swaps for Royce O'Neale

PG: Darius Garland / Ricky Rubio / Raul Neto
SG: Donovan Mitchell / Jordan Clarkson / 49th pick
SF: Royce O'Neale / Caris LeVert / Lamar Stevens
PF: Evan Mobley / Dean Wade / Luke Travers / Isaiah Mobley
C: Jarrett Allen / Khalifa Diop
Coach: J. B. Bickerstaff.


1.) 19 May 2023 12:23:48
And yet that doesn't really address Cleveland's biggest need. Shooters that stretch the floor.

2.) 19 May 2023 15:27:58
Two major issues: They can't trade pick swaps, and Caris can't receive a 5-year contract.

3.) 19 May 2023 22:59:19
Clarkson isn't what they need at all unless they move on from levert.

Trade #1
Cleveland receives: Keldon Johnson, Devin Vassell, '24 frp via Toronto, '25 frp via Atlanta, 32nd pick & '25 srp's via Chicago & Toronto
San Antonio receives: Donovan Mitchell

Cleveland needs wings. Mitchell is undersized, a taller wing next to Garland would be ideal.
San Antonio gets the best player in the deal.

Trade #2
Cleveland receives: Wendell Carter Jr., Chuma Okeke, '25 frp via Denver & '27 & '28 srp's via Boston
Orlando receives: Jarrett Allen

Cleveland needs a big that can shoot.
Orlando gets a big that fits better next to Paolo.

PG: Darius Garland / Ricky Rubio / Raul Neto
SG: Devin Vassell / Caris LeVert / Isaac Okoro
SF: Keldon Johnson / Chuma Okeke / Cedi Osman
PF: Evan Mobley / Dean Wade / Isaiah Mobley / Luka Travers
C: Wendell Carter Jr. / Khalifa Diop
Coach: Frank Vogel? Nick Nurse?


1.) 17 May 2023 16:27:44
that's an easy pass by San Antonio on Trade #1.

But I could see trade #2 going through.

2.) 18 May 2023 17:39:49
id take wendell straight up over allen. Allen has no real path to improvement. I guess he could gain weight? He's had plenty of time to do that and haven't seen progress. Not to mention contracts. and now picks.



03 May 2023 20:42:40
If you were the GM of the Cavs, which of the following would you rather do?

Option 1: Sign Jordan Clarkson & trade for Royce O'Neal

Option 2: Trade Donovan Mitchell for Mikal Bridges

I personally would go with option 1, but I could understand why some would choose option 2.


1.) 03 May 2023 23:03:52
Mitchell for Bridges? Why?

2.) 03 May 2023 23:53:39
@Psiphon I'm confused as well. I've seen that trade thrown around in many forums. I don't think it's close value wise.

3.) 03 May 2023 23:54:15
Not a big fan of Cleveland pieces. Allen+Mobley don't stretch the court for Mitchell or Garland and are not consistent low post scorers.

Almost feel like they need to trade one of Allen-Mobley or Mitchell-Garland and add the necessary shooting around the remaining 3.

I think signing Clarkson is just adding to the problem of inefficient mid-range scorer.

4.) 04 May 2023 01:50:55
@Fredman Jarrett Allen for Wendell Carter Jr. has been tossed around. WCJ would be a downgrade defensively, but he can space the floor. Would you do that trade?

5.) 04 May 2023 07:11:00
I would deal for wendell and not think twice if that was something orlando was actually interested in… i think we overate some of these super skinny shot blockers sometimes like claxton also. Clarkson is a terrible fit unless you dont bring back levert but garland clarkson minutes should be a nightmare on d. Im cool with the bridges trade but id rather deal mobley to become a championship contender bc youll get a lot back for his potential . They shouldve at the deadline this year that's why i picked the knicks in series spacing issues.

6.) 04 May 2023 14:43:41
@JJ. If that was the only deal that Cleveland had a available, then I would probably do that deal, but I know that there are "better" offers out there.

Cleveland feels a lot like Sacramento in looking for that wing as the missing piece that completes the puzzle.



25 Apr 2023 19:38:07
Cleveland receives: O. G. Anunoby, Precious Achiuwa & Chris Boucher
Toronto receives: Jarrett Allen, Isaac Okoro & Cedi Osman (non-guaranteed)

Cleveland adds the much-needed wing in Anunoby, & two versatile bigs that can stretch the floor in Achiuwa & Boucher.
Toronto upgrades their center position with Jarrett Allen, which allows them to move on from Poeltl instead of overpaying for him. They also get cap relief with Osman's non-guaranteed deal & a decent prospect with some upside in Okoro.

PG: Darius Garland
SG: Donovan Mitchell
SF: O. G. Anunoby
PF: Evan Mobley
C: Precious Achiuwa
Coach: J. B. Bickerstaff.


1.) 25 Apr 2023 20:37:35
Cleveland need to add a first if possible.

2.) 26 Apr 2023 17:10:44
Precious as your full time center?

Wow, that was a wild trade deadline!

Who do y'all have as winners?

I got the Nets. They got the most out of their superstars in terms of value. I think they'll still be competitive, they have some very interesting pieces & a decent coach.


1.) 10 Feb 2023 02:48:03
I like the Net, Lakers, and Blazers.

2.) 10 Feb 2023 14:21:18
Not really sure what Portland accomplished. Got a first for flipping Hart into Thybulle? Seemed pretty "meh" to me.

3.) 10 Feb 2023 19:28:08
It wasn’t great, but I’m much happier they decided to turn vets into assets than assets into vets. They weren’t contending. Might as well stock up and see what the offseason can bring.

4.) 11 Feb 2023 03:26:45
Hart is decent but like Bmiller said they aren’t contending. I very intrigued to see Reddish get pt and an opportunity to get steady minutes. I assume he will start at the 3 or be a major bench contributor. Thybulle also adds youth and elite defense.



03 Jan 2023 03:13:53
Donovan Mitchell scored 71 points in a close overtime victory over the Bulls!

Historic performance, first ever 70-10 game. He was 2 rebounds shy of a triple double.


1.) 03 Jan 2023 16:36:09
Arguably the 2nd best regular season game of all time.

2.) 03 Jan 2023 21:32:28
Wilt's 100 and Kobe's 81. Which one is not making the cut, NBA16?

3.) 04 Jan 2023 00:05:51
I honestly have it slightly over Kobe’s

71/ 8/ 11 FG:65% 3pt:46% 20FTM

81/ 6/ 2 FG:60% 3pt:53% 18FTM

Cavs/ Bulls game was also very close and Mitchell wasn’t left open as the Raps did Kobe in 4th.

4.) 04 Jan 2023 22:50:26
Idk if Wilts can ever be topped. 100 & 25, and no telling how many blocks (prolly had a triple double)



09 Dec 2022 19:15:45
The Sacramento Kings did something that went under the radar. They traded a '24 first round pick that is protected through 2026, which means they can't trade any first-round picks until '28 as long as the pick hasn't conveyed.

That is a smart move for a franchise with a shaky past. It eliminates any chance of them mortgaging their future for a star.

We've seen teams trade all their future firsts end in disaster, like the Nets-Boston transaction.


1.) 09 Dec 2022 23:22:01
Ya it’s great! Fart noise.

2.) 10 Dec 2022 03:08:09
Yea, the Kings GM has done a great job getting Sabonis, getting expiring contracts, flipping those contracts + a protected first for Huerter, and then signing Monk away from the competition (Lakers) as well as hiring Mike Brown away from the competition (Golden State) .

The Kings seriously need to extend GM Monte McNair's contract that expires at the end of this season. Then focus on extensions for Sabonis and Monk.

It seems like the only "poor" move the GM has done may have been signing Rashaun Holmes to that 4 yr/ $48 mil (last year a Player Option) contract. But if that is the only bad move, we can live with that.

I seriously think that McNair could be in running for Executive of the Year. GM Danny Ainge and David Griffin/ Trajan Langdon would be the competition in my book.

3.) 10 Dec 2022 18:49:37
@Fredman honestly, $12 million per season is pretty reasonable. They can easily move on from him if they don't want him.



08 Dec 2022 14:59:40
USA trades: Brittney Griner
Russia trades: Viktor Bout

No picks involved, just a straight swap. Who won the trade?


1.) 08 Dec 2022 15:32:55
I’m glad She is freed because she never deserved the sentence, but Russia won the trade.

2.) 08 Dec 2022 15:40:33
I agree. I can't imagine the horrible things she went through. Being in jail is one thing == being in Russian jail? Geez.

3.) 08 Dec 2022 19:32:18
President Biden. Helps with that minority base.



05 Sep 2022 23:09:41
I'm torn on the Donovan Mitchell trade. On one hand, he's a superstar so he instantly makes us better.

That being said, I think we grossly overpaid. Collin Sexton alone is like a poor man's Mitchell. Then we give up Markkanen, Agbaji, THREE unprotected firsts & two unprotected swaps as well? That's crazy.

The only way this trade doesn't end in disaster is if we make a few deep playoff runs. Otherwise, this could get ugly quick.

It sucks that we gave up all our depth. I think Altman had something great going.

Was it a panic move? Who knows. We'll never get to see how Agbaji looks on our roster. I think he has a chance to be a solid player.

This is all coming from pretty much a casual fan, so take it with a grain of salt. Koby is a proven executive, so he probably knows what he's doing.

It's a risky trade. There is tons of upside but the floor is pretty low as well.


1.) 06 Sep 2022 03:49:50
As a Raptor fan I'm torn as well. I'm happy that we didn't trade away what it would have taken to get him because I don't think he'd fit in Toronto. But I have more respect for the Cavaliers now as a threat. I think he fits much better in Cleveland, and I expect the Cavs will continue to get better. Looking forward to a great rivalry. You'd better make sure you sell the joint out or there will be lots of Raptor fans in your hall.

2.) 07 Sep 2022 08:06:39
cleveland should give this a chance
they have three all stars in the beginning of their prime and a young talent.
Little chance they have to swap the picks.
And they lose late first round picks.
Mitchell seems happy in Cleveland and they can always trade him for other picks if this fails.

3.) 08 Sep 2022 00:52:28
I think they needed to make the move to be considered true contenders. They didn’t have the go to guy, Mitchell can be that for them and has had elite playoff performances. You get elite players, then worry about depth later. Not other way around.

That's true. Maybe add a protected first or two.

Mike Bibby was a big part of those fun Sacramento Kings teams. I don't know if he had all-star accolades, but he certainly passed the eye test.

Harris+Ross+Franz Wagner+Return Chicago

That's a massive overpay. I wouldn't trade Wagner straight up for LaVine.

The Mavs need to do something fast, or else Luka is going to demand a trade. Losing Brunson was a big blow to that franchise.
