RUMOR: Cavs receiving trade calls for Jarrett Allen, but there’s a catch
The Cleveland Cavaliers have made it clear that they intend to move forward next season with their current core. This includes one-time All-Star Jarrett Allen, who still remains to be an integral part of what the Cavs are trying to achieve. Nevertheless, this has not stopped opposing teams from making inquiries about the potential availability of Allen via trade.
According to Cavs insider Chris Fedor of cleveland.com, the front office has continued “to receive trade offers” from multiple teams with regard to a possible Jarrett Allen swap. However, the catch is that the Cavs do not seem interested.
Fedor revealed that Cleveland has rebuffed offers for players, draft picks, and a combination of both from opposing sides that are looking to shore up their frontcourt. This speaks volumes of how much the Cavs value Jarrett Allen and how they intend to keep him on board for the long haul.
One team that has reportedly “reached out about Allen’s availability” is none other than the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs are looking for a pick-and-roll partner for Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, and it seems that Allen has piqued their interest. Nevertheless, it’s still a “no” for Cleveland.
You have to note, however, that the report also indicates that none of the current trade offers “have been appealing enough” for the Cavs. This seems to hint at the possibility of Cleveland potentially being open to a deal, but perhaps only if the right offer comes along.
