Lauri Markkanen

3 trades the Cavs could make with Lauri Markkanen

No one except for Cavs fans with the rosiest of glasses saw this past season coming, a doubling of the team’s win total from the year before. Included in that massive surprise were a series of smaller surprises, from how dominant Evan Mobley was as a rookie defender to how the Cleveland Cavaliers started three 7-footers from day one.

Regrading the Cavs’ sign and trade for Lauri Markkanen

Last summer the Cleveland Cavaliers were committed to stocking the frontcourt with young talent, and adding veteran help to a backcourt that had some young, high-end scoring talent already in place. The Cavs re-signed Jarrett Allen, drafted Evan Mobley and traded for Ricky Rubio. They looked to be mostly done at that point.

Lauri Markkanen should be ready to roll for Cavs in 2022-23

This 2021-22 season was one where there were ups and downs for Lauri Markkanen. It was his first season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, after he was acquired via sign-and-trade last offseason from the Chicago Bulls. That deal was for four years and $67.5 million, with that only guaranteed for $6 million in the last season of the contract.

Cavs Top 3: Darius Garland and Lauri Markkanen not enough to cut the Nets

The Cavaliers continue to spiral despite big games from Darius Garland and Lauri Markkanen. The worst part of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 118-107 loss to the Brooklyn Nets is the fact that the Cavs actually wrecked Kyrie Irving all came long. Sadly, it wasn’t enough as the young core fell apart in the fourth quarter, where the team got dog-walked to the tune of 35-19. The Cavs have fallen off since the injury to Jarrett Allen, and are just 2-8 in their last 10. The Cavs wasted a 31 point performance from Garland and some fine sharp-shooting output from Lauri Markkanen.

Cavs’ Lauri Markkanen has definitely been doing his part

From my perspective, and I’d imagine many Cleveland Cavaliers fans’, it’s fair to say that Lauri Markkanen has had some peaks and valleys over the course of this season. That was often how it was for him in his first four seasons with the Chicago Bulls, too.
