Cleveland Cavaliers president of basketball operations Koby Altman has no plans to trade Darius Garland, Donovan Mitchell, Evan Mobley or Jarrett Allen, according to NBA writer Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.

After the Cavaliers lost to the New York Knicks in the first round of the 2023 playoffs in five quick games, rumors started to swirl that Altman wanted to make big changes to the roster. However, that won’t be taking place.

“I intend that to be the case,” Altman said when asked recently during a Zoom call if those four players will remain together going into the 2023-24 season. “I never make promises in case something were to miraculously happen, but all four know how important they are to this, and no conversations have happened. Outside of teams calling doing their job, no conversations have happened substantial that we envision breaking up this core. It’s a core that won 51 games last year and really has a lot more runway left. I think we’re going to continue to get better.”

The New Orleans Pelicans and Dallas Mavericks tried to trade for Allen this summer, but Altman rejected every trade offer. Altman also said the rumor about Garland being available in trade talks was “crazy.”

“That was the most crazy rumor you’ve ever heard of in your life,” Altman said. “We’ve drafted him. We raised him to be an All-Star. He’s under contract for five more years. He loves it here.”
