Summer League is a great time to catch a glimpse at the NBA's next generation of talent. There's always going to be big names playing in it the showcase that you know are going to be stars. But sometimes an unexpected player takes a game by storm and puts their name on everyone's radar heading into the season.
Star guard Donovan Mitchell just finished his first year in Cleveland and the Cavaliers are hoping there’s plenty more to come. Their chance to do something about that arrived over the weekend, as Friday was the first official day the Cavs could submit a contract extension offer to Mitchell.
Some other Cavs players have faced interesting trade rumors this offseason too, but considering Cleveland’s roster construction and Jarrett Allen’s high-floor, low-ceiling skill set, he just might be the most realistic trade candidate.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are more open to trading Jarrett Allen than advertised, according to NBA insider Marc Stein. Allen did not play well in the first round of the 2023 playoffs against the New York Knicks, a series the Cavaliers lost in five games.
The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to receive trade offers for center Jarrett Allen, according to NBA insider Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com. None of the trade overtures have been appealing enough for the Cavaliers to part ways with Allen.
