Cavaliers reportedly send Dante Exum to Houston in blockbuster

The Cleveland Cavaliers have traded point guard Dante Exum to the Houston Rockets as part of the James Harden blockbuster deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

What It Means:

It's a 4-team deal with a ton of moving parts. As far as we currently know, the Cavaliers have traded Dante Exum (to Houston) and a 2024 2nd-round pick (to Brooklyn). In return, the upstart franchise is getting in return 22-year-old center Jarrett Allen and 26-year-old wing Taurean Prince, both coming from Brooklyn. With the young core already in place with Collin Sexton and Darius Garland, and now they may have just found their center of the future in Allen.

In 6 games this season, Exum has averaged 3.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 12.3 FanDuel points across 19.3 minutes.
