Wizards Trade For Cavaliers’ Jarrett Allen In Proposal

Jarrett Allen, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, NBA Trade Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

Every NBA rebuild isn’t the same. This is not an exact science. Some teams tank. They’re comfortable losing for several seasons on end. Those teams are hoping that the payoff will be enormous. 

Other teams approach a rebuild differently. They’re aware of the lottery-related benefits of losing, but they’re not as keen to exploit them. If they win games, they consider that to be a good thing. 

Which route will the Washington Wizards choose? We don’t know. This team is in the infancy stages of their rebuild. Could they acquire Jarrett Allen of the Cleveland Cavaliers anyway? 

The Trade Proposal

Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: G Delon Wright, F Deni Avdija, F Danilo Gallinari, 2026 First-Round Pick (Lottery Protected – WAS) 
Washington Wizards Receive: C Jarrett Allen 

Just look at the Cavaliers. This team has followed the rebuilding blueprint to a tee. First, they drafted a large percentage of their core. Darius Garland was their first building block, but in all likelihood, Evan Mobley will be their most significant one. 

In the meantime, they built around those pieces. Allen was their first major acquisition. Of course, Donovan Mitchell was the most significant player they’ve acquired.

The Cavaliers have acquired a lot of talent. Still, something feels a little off here. Their backcourt is too small, and their frontcourt is too slow. This team may want to make some modifications in time. Is this the right one? 

Why The Cleveland Cavaliers Do The Deal 

We think so. This deal solves several problems that the Cavaliers have. This team has needed a wing for ages. Avdija could be the solution. He’s a versatile defender who impacts the game offensively with strong connective passing. 

Meanwhile, Wright is the big guard this rotation needs. He’ll allow the Cavs to stagger Garland and Mitchell to some extent. He’s a solid addition to this rotation as well.

In all likelihood, this deal comes down to that first-round pick. The Cavaliers may want to haggle for less protections. Assuming this pick rolls into future seasons to eventually convey, the Cavaliers should like this deal. Should the Wizards? 

Why The Washington Wizards Do The Deal 

This would be a bold move for Washington. Some would say that it’s too bold. After all, this team is rebuilding. They also have the younger Daniel Gafford to play the 5. What are the Wizards doing? 

Well, Allen isn’t exactly nearing retirement. He’s still young enough to be part of a rebuild. Allen is also a more impactful player than Gafford.

Could he lead Washington to a few extra wins this season? It’s possible. Still, if the Wizards prefer to prioritize culture and competitiveness over lottery odds, they might not mind. After all, every rebuild is different.
