Breaking News: Cleveland Cavaliers Acquire Donovan Mitchell From Trade With Jazz

The Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly acquired star Donovan Mitchell in a trade with the Utah Jazz, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski

The Jazz sent Mitchell to Cleveland and acquired: Lauri Markkanen, Ochair Agbaji, Collin Sexton, three unprotected first-round picks, and two pick swaps, Wojnarowski adds. 

Sexton agreed to a four-year, $72 million contract with a sign-and-trade to the Utah Jazz, according to The Athletic's Shams Charnia

The 25-year-old All-Star was surrounded by trade rumors during this summer's NBA offseason after the Jazz traded their star center Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves in July. Utah is seemingly in full rebuild mode now after off-loading both of their stars and are looking to start from the ground up. 

Mitchell also recently deleted the Jazz from his Twitter bio this week, signifying his displeasure with Utah that ultimately ended with his departure from the team. 

Mitchell, who was drafted by the Jazz 13th overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, has helped lead Utah to the post-season each year since his arrival. He has averaged 24 points per game, 4.2 rebounds, and 4.5 assists for his career.

The former Louisville product joins a young but promising Cleveland squad that includes Darius Garland, who showed promise as an emerging star with his play last season, Evan Mobley, who enters his sophomore season after finishing second in Rookie of The Year voting last year, and Jarrett Allen, the team's rim protector. 

The Cavaliers did not qualify for the playoffs last season after losing to the Atlanta Hawks in the "Play-in" tournament this past April. They finished their season with a record above .500 (44-38) and with the acquisition of Mitchell the club will have deeper playoff aspirations, something they have not had without LeBron James in the past two decades.
