The Cavaliers plan to run it back with Garland, Allen, Donovan Mitchell and Evan Mobley. 

Mitchell is anticipated to sign an extension with the Cavaliers this offseason, several NBA sources informed Hoops Wire. 

“I think they’d have to be blown away for them to consider it (moving Garland and Allen) on both fronts,” Fedor stated on The HoopsBuzz podcast with Michael Scotto. “They’ve gotten offers in the past for Allen specifically. Teams have been poking around on Allen for the last couple of years. There has been interest in Garland. I think there are teams that make sense for Darius who could use him. San Antonio comes to mind certainly, but if they’re not going to give the Cavaliers either Victor Wembanyama or Devin Vassell, what are the Spurs going to offer the Cavaliers that Cleveland would be willing to say yes to?”

Allen, who has 2 years and $40 million left on his agreement, balanced 16.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.7 helps, 0.7 takes and 1.1 blocks this season while shooting 63.4% from the field and 74.2% from the free-throw line.  

Meanwhile, Garland balanced 18.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 6.5 helps while shooting 44.6% from the field, 37.1% from beyond the arc and 83.4% from the free-throw line. He’ll make $36.7 million next season.

“The front office likes this roster and believes in the core four of Mitchell, Garland, Mobley, and Allen, and they don’t feel like they need to break up those guys,” Fedor stated. 

The Cavaliers beat the Orlando Magic in the preliminary of this year’s postseason in 7 video games however lost to the Boston Celtics in the 2nd round in 5 video games.

The New Orleans Pelicans have an interest in obtaining Garland and Allen, while the San Antonio Spurs have actually been connected to Garland.

However, it appears both gamers will be remaining in Cleveland. 

“Cleveland has continued to tell teams they’re not trying to move Darius Garland and Jarrett Allen, league sources told HoopsHype,” Scotto reported. “Koby Altman talked about the plus/minus ratings with those guys. They still think Darius is an All-Star-caliber player. He’s young and under contract for the next four years. It would really take a lot for them to move him.”
