The Cleveland Cavaliers have built their current team by pulling all of the levers of player acquisition. Core pieces like Evan Mobley, Darius Garland and even Collin Sexton were added via the draft; Lauri Markkanen effectively came in free agency in a sign-and-trade last August. 8 months before that, the Cavs leapt into a multi-team trade to add big man Jarrett Allen to the fold.

Should Raptors pull off wild OG Anunoby/Jarrett Allen trade?

The Toronto Raptors might not have a traditional rim-protecting center on the roster at the moment, but that doesn’t negate the fact that their OG Anunoby-led collection of versatile forwards helped key their turnaround from also-ran to legitimate contender with championship aspirations. While Anunoby once again missed large chunks...

Cavs’ Jarrett Allen should be able to build on great defensive season

Jarrett Allen not finishing in the Top 3 for DPOY is a joke

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ very own Jarrett Allen got robbed of a DPOY Top-3 finish. Jarrett Allen had an exceptional year. He finished with 16.1 points and 10.8 rebounds, while also putting up 1.3 blocks per game. He helped lead the team to its first winning record without LeBron James since 1998 and achieved his first All-Star selection. He was the team’s second-most consistent scoring option and was the teams’ focal point defensively. He was easily one of the best defensive forces in all of the NBA. He also finished with a BPM of +3.9, an impressive number for a 23-year-old.

Jarrett Allen had major issue getting to Cavaliers’ play-in game

Cleveland Cavaliers center Jarrett Allen made his long-awaited return from injury on Friday, but he was running a bit behind as he did so. Allen, who missed the final 18 games of the regular season due to a broken finger, returned for the Cavaliers Friday in their play-in game against the Atlanta Hawks. Allen went through pre-game warmups before being fully cleared, but he very nearly missed them. The center actually arrived late to Quicken Loans Arena, as he got stuck in traffic stemming from the Cleveland Guardians’ home opener across the street.
