J-ALL-DAY Posted September 3, 2022 Author Share Posted September 3, 2022 18 hours ago, seminoles1 said: Yup. The Knicks with Mitchell are definitely worse than the Cavs with Mitchell. The picks likely will be worse than what they would have gotten. But this is why I'm not sure why some think the Jazz got the better of the deal or straight up robbed the Cavs as mentioned earlier in this thread. Having control of the Cavs draft for the next five years is good and all, but this team is going to have around 50-54 wins for the foreseeable future. If Mobley ends up being what most think he can be, then this team is going to be a title contender and a consistent top 3-4 seed for a while. How exactly did the Cavs get fleeced here or even lose the trade? They got by far the best player in the deal while giving up mainly picks in the 20s and Sexton. The rest of the pieces are just okay but it's the picks and Sexton. Not saying the Jazz did bad here but I don't think they won the trade either. Mitchell with the Knicks is a borderline playoff team. Those picks would have been much more valuable and then I would have agreed that the Jazz did very well and may have even won the trade without getting back the best player in the deal. That's not the case with this deal. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
