According to the report, Cavs traded Lauri Markken, Collin Sexton, Ochai Agbaji, three unprotected first round choices (2025, 2027 and 2029) and two swaps of Picks (2026 and 2028) to Utah Jazz for Mitchell.
Sexton approved a four-year contract, $ 72 million with Utah in an agreement on the signs of trade, his agent told ESPN.
This step confirmed the ongoing rebuilding project in Utah after reaching the playoffs for the past six seasons but failed to advance through the second half.
As far as this summer, Jazz has received the resignation of Coach Quin Snyder, replacing him with Will Hardy, and sent an All-Star Center and defensive player three times this year Rudy Gobert to Minnesota Timberwolves.
This is only the second time since 1977 that a team has had two All-Stars teams to change the following offseason, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Following the trading of their two All-Star players, Jazz now has 13 first rounded or protected rounds of the first rounds until 2029 and the first two rounds of 2022 in Agbaji and Walker Kessler, which were acquired in the Gobert trade.
Mitchell, a shooting guard, was previously linked to his hometown team, the New York Knicks, but they “temporarily moved” from commercial negotiations, according to Wojnarowski, and chose to sign Rj Barrett to a long extension term.
The 25 -year -old was selected in the first round of the NBA 2017 NBA of the University of Louisville and collected an average of 25.9 points per game last season. During his five seasons in the NBA, he has an average of 23.9 points per game.
With still three years on his contract, Mitchell will help form the core of the Cleveland team alongside his compatriots 2022 All-Stars Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen as well as the recruit finalist of the year Evan Mobley. Only the defending champion Golden State Warriors can also boast three stars of 2022 on their list.
