The Cleveland Cavaliers’ season came to a disappointing, albeit somewhat predictable, end Wednesday with an Eastern Conference Semifinals loss to the Boston Celtics. In the wake of the defeat, the team faces questions about its future, including what the roster may look like come next season.

Shams Charania, Joe Vardon, and Jason Lloyd of The Athletic reported that is the team retains Donovan Mitchell, Darius Garland’s representation, Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul, may ask the Cavs front office for a trade.

This comes amid questions surrounding Garland’s fit with Mitchell and the idea that the team may have to choose one or another.

“After an All-Star campaign in 2021-22 in which he averaged 21.7 points, 8.6 assists and 3.3 rebounds, Garland’s minutes, field goal and 3-point attempts and usage percentage have all dropped upon the arrival of Mitchell,” the report stated.

Garland had his weakest season in years, scoring just 18 points (down from 21.6), 6.5 assists (down from 7.8), and shooting 44.6 from the paint (down from 46.2), adding credence to the idea that the point guard may be ready to move on from a team where Mitchell is the undisputed face and facilitator of the offense.

The Brooklyn Nets are in need of a point guard who can feed the likes of Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson. That situation, where Garland can be the star through whom the offense runs may benefit him, may be a great fit.
