According to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Cavaliers are facing a pivotal decision regarding All-Star guard Donovan Mitchell.

Despite Mitchell’s current contract status, which runs through the 2024-25 season, rumors suggest that the Cavaliers are preparing to trade him before he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Mitchell’s uncertain future with the Cavaliers stems from his likely decision to decline his player option for the 2025-26 season, paving the way for unrestricted free agency next July.

While Cleveland remains open to offering Mitchell a maximum extension, sources indicate that Mitchell may opt to explore other opportunities if such an agreement is not reached.

The Cavaliers are wary of Mitchell potentially walking away in free agency without compensation, especially considering the significant assets they traded to acquire him.

Mitchell’s tenure with the Cavaliers has been marked by impressive individual performances, including averaging 26.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 6 assists per game this season.
