    Cavs give up Dante Exum and the Bucks 2022 1st rounder they have

    Cavs Get: Jarrett Allen and Taurean Prince

    This likely means they trade Andre Drummond now.

    Allen from what Ive seen other people say is "one of the best young centers in basketball" so this is a pretty good deal on the Cavs end considering they gave up not much

    Yea I was confused at first too. Haha.

    They gave up nothing. Got a good young center and a decent other player. Plus it opens up flexibility for them to make other trades now. No problems with this one.

    Well, both NBC Sports and CBS Sports think the Cavs won on the trade:

    WINNER: Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cavs snuck in the deal to trade Dante Exum, Milwaukee’s 2022 first-round pick, and a 2024 second-round pick for 22-year-old big man Jarrett Allen and 26-year-old forward Taurean Prince.

    With Allen now in the mix, perhaps an Andre Drummond trade could be brewing.

    Cleveland Cavaliers: A
    There's no such thing as a perfect trade, but Cleveland came about as close to it as any team could with this deal. While the Cavaliers are loaded with big men, most of them are either in their prime or about to exit it. By the time Collin Sexton and Darius Garland are ready to win at the highest levels, Andre Drummond and Kevin Love probably won't be. Drummond is on an expiring deal as is, and while his market hasn't exactly been robust in the past (Cleveland got him for only a second-round pick), committing long-term money of any sort to a non-shooting center entering his age-28 season is risky business.

    So they pivoted into Allen, who is also due for a new contract this offseason but is a safer bet at only 22 years old. Allen has blossomed alongside star-level talent in Brooklyn, averaging career highs in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and field goal percentage this season, and while Cleveland won't be able to surround him with nearly as many weapons, it should eventually be able to give him the undisputed starting slot that Brooklyn was hesitant to grant with DeAndre Jordan in the building. The Cavs, in essence, managed to add their likely long-term starter at center without giving up much of anything.

    The first-round pick they surrendered in the deal originally belonged to Milwaukee. With Giannis Antetokounmpo re-signed during the offseason, that pick will almost certainly fall in the late 20s. Dante Exum represents the salary filler, but his inability to stay on the floor has made him more of a liability than an asset. All in all, a late first-round pick and a high-risk, low-reward young player seems like a small price to pay for long-term stability at the center spot. That's what Cleveland has secured here. That it also gets to take a flier on Prince is a nice bonus.

    This trade clearly helps Cleveland this season and beyond. Allen is a good player, and to a slightly lesser extent, so is Prince. Having Allen as a RFA will ensure that he will be an asset moving forward. Prince will definitely merit substantial PT this season. As others have mentioned, this also frees up Cleveland to trade Drummond and add other assets soon to keep building for the future.

    Lol this franchise and food fights.

    JR Smith supposedly threw soup at coach Damon Jones a few years ago. Is this a common thing or just Cleveland??

    That was a pretty incredible performance by Sexton. 20 straight points between OT1 and OT2.

    This core actually offers some hope unlike previous post LeBron projects.

    The Cavs are now 7-7. I think with the roster as is, they have a legit shot at the playoffs this season. They could get in with a fairly pedestrian record due to playing in the East. The bench got massive upgrades with Prince and Allen. I would bet on them making it at this point.

    Looking forward to seeing what this is like once the injured players are back. There's still a lot of talent on the injured bench.
