This is not a minor trade. Garland feels like a 4th wheel now that he’s back after Mitchell showed he’s best as a lead guard with the ball. So the Cavs move Garland and get great fits at the 2 and 3.

Grant and Reaves give Cleveland enough spacing and playmaking to allow the Mobley- Allen thing to work. They improve the spacing for the Cavs and don’t hurt the defense.

Lakers get a third star despite giving up a lot important pieces. It’s their best shot and offers them a future too.

Portland gets Hachimura and a pick.

San Antonio gets value for McDermott’s expiring including a point guard who can help Wemby when he’s healthy later this month.
