Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell is heading to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a blockbuster deal, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday.

The Jazz are receiving Lauri Markkanen, Ochai Agbaji, Collin Sexton and Cleveland’s unprotected first-round picks in 2025, 2027 and 2029 as well as pick swaps in 2026 and 2028, sources said.

Sexton will sign a four-year, $72 million fully guaranteed deal as part of a sign-and-trade agreement with Utah, Rich Paul of KlutchSports told ESPN.

Mitchell, a three-time All-Star who will turn 26 next week, joins a promising young core of Darius Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen in Cleveland. All four players are locked up long-term, with Mitchell under contract for the next three seasons.

The Jazz, meanwhile, remain committed to a rebuild started in July with the trade of All-Star center Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves for five first-round picks. Utah has now gathered 13 unprotected or lightly protected picks through 2029.
