The Cleveland Cavaliers have made it clear that Jarrett Allen and Caris LeVert are integral to their plans, expressing a strong desire to retain the duo unless a trade significantly boosts their title contention, according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.

Last season, both Allen and LeVert found themselves in trade discussions, but this year, the Cavaliers view them as key contributors to their roster.

The franchise, committed to building a competitive team, sees Evan Mobley and Darius Garland as additional core pieces alongside Allen and LeVert.

Allen, known for his defensive prowess and rebounding, is delivering an impressive performance this season, averaging 13.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 28.3 minutes per game.

LeVert, a versatile guard, has been contributing across multiple facets, boasting averages of 15.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.7 assists in 30.7 minutes per game.
