As a substitute, Mitchell is beneath crew management for at the least the subsequent three seasons and may’t turn out to be a free agent till 2027. Mitchell’s contract will hold its $35.4 million wage for the 2024-25 season, however he’ll obtain a increase to $46.4 million for the 2025-26 marketing campaign.

The largest pressure on the Cavs’ cap would be the upcoming extension for Evan Mobley, who’s eligible for a five-year extension that may very well be value as much as $270 million. It is arduous to think about Mobley agreeing to a deal at lower than his full max regardless of his plateau in play, and his new deal will ship the Cavs hovering into tax territory in 2025-26.

In fact, this assumes Cleveland runs issues again with its present roster, which isn’t a lock. Darius Garland may request a commerce now that Mitchell has signed his extension, as the previous All-Star’s inventory has fallen considerably taking part in alongside his ball-dominant co-star. The Cavs have been adamant of their perception the Garland-Mitchell tandem can work, however it’s clear which of the 2 will likely be headed elsewhere if a deal is made.

Cleveland may additionally discover the commerce marketplace for Jarrett Allen, whose $20 million annual wage is a cut price. Allen’s place overlap with Mobley creates an ungainly on-court dynamic, and the Cavs is likely to be sensible to make a transfer earlier than they should determine on an Allen extension.
