Cleveland Trades Jordan Clarkson
Cleveland is unloading its roster.
According to NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cavaliers have agreed to trade guard Jordan Clarkson to Utah for Dante Exum.
In the trade, Utah will also send two future second-round picks to Cleveland.
Clarkson is a good scoring guard who can help any bench with his myriad ways of scoring the ball, including driving to the rim or hitting an open shot. Clarkson is on his third team in two years averaging 14.6 points in his young career. Clarkson has played 60 or more games in his seven full seasons.
Exum, on the other hand, has had an injury-plagued career, only playing in 60 or more games in five seasons. He also completely missed the 2015-2016 season due to a torn ACL in his left knee. Exum averages a career 5.7 points per game.
Utah has gotten better, while Cleveland will continue to lose games and look to trade All-Star power forward Kevin Love in an effort to get the highest draft pick they can get.
