Why The Cleveland Cavaliers Do The Deal 

This would sting for the Cavaliers. There’s no denying that. 

This team is generally regarded as a model rebuild. The Cavaliers built through the draft, and supplemented their picks with trades. Now, we’ve got them trading the player it all started with in Garland. 

At the same time, this team badly needs wings. Meanwhile, Donovan Mitchell is an offensive engine. He’s more of a scorer than Garland and less of a distributor. Nonetheless, he is a guard that you can run your offense through.

Having Cameron Johnson on the wings won’t hurt his ability to do so. This is one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA.

Finally, the Cavaliers are also making up much of the draft capital they moved to land Mitchell here. This deal balances their roster and improves their future flexibility. 

Even if it has them losing a little talent in the process.
