Breaking news: Cleveland Cavaliers announce the signing excellent $163m deal of key player from…

The Cleveland Cavaliers made sure they held on to what has become the face of their franchise in the post LeBron James era. Donovan Mitchell has agreed to a three-year, maximum contract extension that will keep him at Rocket Mortgage Field House until at least 2027.

Mitchell had a five year, $163 million contract that he signed with the Utah Jazz in 2020, but after getting traded Cleveland two years ago he has turned into one of the most underrated superstars in the league. That’s why the Cavs offered him a three-year, $150.3 million dollar maximum contract extension.

In the two years he has been in Cleveland, he has led the team back to the playoffs after four years of futility following the departure of LeBron James in 2018. The Cavs made it to the first round of the playoffs in 2022, and reached the Conference Semifinals, but got knocked out by the eventual NBA Champion, Boston Celtics, in five games.

Mitchell suffered a calf strain in second round series against the Celtics, but in the opening round he had 50 points in a must win Game 6 against Orlando, and followed that up with a 39 point Game 7 to push the Cavs through to the next round of the playoffs.

Spida joins Iverson on elite list

Since getting drafted by the Jazz with the 13th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, and since then has averaged 20+ points in each of his first seven seasons. Allen Iverson is the only other guard to have done that in the last three decades.
