Magic Johnson Shares His Opinion On the Donovan Mitchell Trade to Cleveland Cavaliers

Donovan Mitchell to the Knicks? Trade Rumors Spark Social Media Frenzy, But Can NYC Really Land the Star?

On Thursday, the Cleveland Cavaliers ended the prolonged Donovan Mitchell selection.

A blockbuster trade involving Lauri Markkanen, Collin Sexton, and Ochai Agbaji, three first-round picks, and two pick swaps landed the Cavaliers the star of the Utah Jazz for a hefty sum.

Given how well-liked Mitchell is among NBA players, how surprising the trade was, and how the New York Knicks, who were considered the favorite to land Mitchell, left empty-handed, twitter was filled with remarks about the deal.

Magic Johnson is considered the best point guard without any doubt. The legendary Los Angeles Lakers player was a first-ballot Hall of Famer who also won three MVP awards and five NBA titles. He has served as the Lakers’ head coach and president of basketball operations in addition to his time as a player.

Magic Johnson tweeted his opinion regarding the Donovan Mitchell trade:

He further applauded Utah Jazz’s CEO Danny Ainge:

Overall, Johnson’s assessment seems accurate. The Cavaliers were 44-38 last season, and they are now bringing in one of the top 25 NBA players. Last year, Donovan averaged 25.9 points per game and was selected to his third straight All-Star Game. He has never missed the NBA Playoffs in his five seasons in the league. The Jazz have now traded Rudy Gobert and Mitchell, and they have also acquired a sizable amount of goods to aid in their rebuilding.
