What does what happens to Donovan Mitchell trade affect the Milwaukee Bucks?: It was reported on Thursday afternoon that Donovan Mitchell was indeed traded and in no way to the New York Knicks as previously speculated, but with Cleveland Cavaliers.

Cleveland Cavaliers. What does this have to do with have to do with what’s happening with the Milwaukee Bucks? It’s possible to disregard this information as not impacting the Bucks however it is. 

Although there isn’t much discussed about the divisional alignment in the NBA the same way as it is with the NFL or MLB however, it’s an element in the scheduling process and that’s why it is important.

There are two teams in the Eastern Conference: Milwaukee Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers are both located in the Central Division of the Eastern Conference as are the Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls. That means Donovan Mitchell being traded to the Cavaliers means that the Milwaukee Bucks will have to play Mitchell twice at a time, ranging from playing twice per year when part of the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference and now playing four times during the season as a part of the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

The Bucks and their new look Cavaliers will have a good relationship at the beginning of the season. two games in Milwaukee are scheduled for November 16th and November 25th and the two other games taking place on December 21st, and 21st of January, the two games being in Cleveland.

It was reported that the Cavaliers trade three of their players: Collin Sexton, Lauri Markkanen and the 2022 first round choice Milwaukee born Ochai Agbaji (a choice that the Milwaukee Bucks were rumored to be interested in trading for) as well as a number of first round picks and swaps. Collin Sexton is a solid player, and I’ll admit that I’m pleased for Markkanen to go as his size allowed him to effectively guard Khris Middleton during the time they played Bucks along with the Cavaliers played.

What is Donovan Mitchell coming over to the Cavaliers have to do with their head-to-head matchups against Milwaukee Bucks? Milwaukee Bucks? It could mean that Jrue Holiday Grayson Allen, Wesley Matthews, George Hill and Jevon Carter will have more work to complete defensively. 

Cleveland was already home to an All-Star backcourt in their this season, with Darius Garland, who got paid in the summer and Donovan Mitchell who has been an annual All-Star and has enjoyed some quite impressive playoff moments, but it’s not enough to win winning a title, which has led for the Utah Jazz to rebuild.

In his 10 games with the Jazz against the Milwaukee Bucks, Donovan Mitchell has averaged 26.2 points, 4.7 assists and 3.8 rebound. Although his field-goal percentage is only 40.1 percent over the 10 games, Mitchell’s three-point percentage is roughly equal at 40 percent.

The last time that the Bucks as well as the Jazz faced off against one against each other, Donovan Mitchell and Jrue Holiday battled and scored 29 points off 10 field goals. It took Donovan Mitchell 32 attempts at field goals which included 17 3-pointers of which he hit five to score those 29 points. It took Jrue Holiday only 21. 

Mitchell ended the game on the 14th of March match with 29 points with eight assists, and six rebounding. Jrue Holiday scored 29 points seven assists, four rebounding and five steals. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 30 , while also grabbing 15,. the Bucks defeated the game by 117-111. It was their first victory in Utah since 2001.

The Cleveland Cavaliers traded away a portion of their depth in order to complete this trade, as well as their draft pick in the first round however, they have a solid starting lineup which includes Evan Mobley who narrowly finished 2nd in the Rookie of Year poll in 2022.

Jarrett Allen, after watching Mitchell and Rudy Gobert in Utah there is no doubt that Donovan Mitchell will make the Cavaliers big men stronger.

The Milwaukee Bucks are still the team to beat in the Central Division until further notice because of the most effective player of the NBA Giannis Antetokounmpo and the inclusion that of Donovan Mitchell is a move that will bring Cavaliers closer to the top of their league.

Cavaliers close to best teams of the Eastern Conference and presents a new challenge for players like the Bucks in their attempt to make it back in the NBA Finals and compete for another title.
