Donovan Mitchell exits the Jazz in huge NBA trade deal
Cleveland, Ohio - After five seasons and playoff berths with the Utah Jazz, Donovan Mitchell has been traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a hot steal.
In a huge trade exchange for Mitchell, the Utah Jazz will receive the Cavaliers' Lauri Markkanen, Ochai Agbaji, and Collin Sexton, as well as Cleveland's unprotected first-round picks in 2025, 2027, and 2029, and pick swaps for the 2026 and 2028 seasons, as per reports.
Mitchell, a three-time All-Star who will turn 26 next week, will join the young talented group of Darius Garland, Evan Mobley, and Jarrett Allen as a part of the franchise's roster re-build.
The shooting guard is said to be contracted with Cleveland for the next three seasons.
Throughout his career as a Jazz, Mitchell averaged 23.9 points, 4.5 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game while shooting 44.1 percent from the field.
Mitchell is expected to make a huge impact on the court for the Cavaliers as one of the top NBA offensive players.
