Make Center Upgrade

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: F Doug McDermott, F Danilo Gallinari, 2025 First-Round Pick (ATL via SAS) 
San Antonio Spurs Receive: F Grant Williams 
Boston Celtics Receive: C Jarrett Allen 

This deal features three teams in very different spots. Yet, they’ll all be looking to improve next season. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers looked like contenders at times during 2022-23. In the playoffs, the combined spacing of Jarrett Allen and Evan Mobley proved problematic. Here, they’re acquiring a sweet shooting wing in McDermott. 

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs were one of the worst teams in the NBA this season. That’s why Victor Wembanyama will be on their roster next year.

Now, they’ll likely be looking to accelerate their rebuild. Finally, the Boston Celtics replace Williams III here with Allen.

If the former looks healthy next year, perhaps they could shop him for the point guard they need. In either case, this feels better than blowing up their core this summer.
