After a protracted, drawn-out summer time, the NBA offseason lastly seems to be over. Donovan Mitchell was traded. Kevin Durant was not. Free brokers signed or re-signed. Barring one thing really surprising, rosters must be principally set by the beginning of coaching camp, which is quickly approaching (gulp) by the top of September. So with only some microscopic flecks of mud needing to settle, let’s hand out some offseason awards.

Greatest Transfer: Cavaliers purchase Donovan Mitchell

Cleveland acquired a borderline All-NBA expertise with three years left on his contract with out giving up any of its tantalizing younger core, and parting methods with just one participant from final season’s playoff rotation. That is a house run, it doesn’t matter what the draft choose cultists will inform you. (And if I’ve Evan Mobley and Darius Garland on my crew, I am prepared to wager I will not be within the lottery most years.) Mitchell is by the far the highest-impact participant to change rosters this summer time. Does he have flaws? In fact. Can he enhance them, notably his protection of him? Completely. Extra necessary, the Cavs now have the very best participant from 2022’s greatest offense. That is not a nasty method to beef up a core that features two All-Stars and an rising generational defender.
