The biggest return in the deal for Utah is free agent Collin Sexton, who agreed to a four-year, $72 million sign-and-trade deal to stay with the Jazz through the 2026-27 season. , according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.


The Jazz have been stocked with future draft assets this offseason after trading their two All-Star players to Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Between the two deals, Utah acquired seven first-round picks, three pick trades and two players who were selected in the first round of the 2022 NBA Draft.

Cleveland, meanwhile, is looking to wrestle right now. Mitchell, 25, is one of the league’s elite scorers and his acquisition could put the Cavs, who won 44 games last season with a young core, among the best teams in the loaded Eastern Conference.

There had been speculation for months that Mitchell might be moved, and it looked like the New York Knicks were the favorite for him. Cleveland, however, made the move for the three-time All-Star.

Mitchell, who averaged 25.9 points per game last season, will be paired with All-Star point guard Darius Garland and will play with All-Star center Jarett Allen and forward Evan Mobley, who has enjoyed a solid rookie season.

Sexton missed last season with a knee injury and was a restricted free agent. He’s a proven scorer, but has become useless for Cleveland due to Garland’s development and the club’s talented front line.

Markkanen averaged 14.8 points and 5.7 rebounds in his first season with the Cavs.

Agbaji was drafted by Cleveland with the 14th overall pick this year after helping Kansas win a national championship.
