The Cavaliers sacrifice Ricky Rubio to recover Caris LeVert! | NBA

Like Joe Ingles on the Jazz side, Ricky Rubio knew his serious injury and status as a future free agent could be used in a trade, and ESPN reveals that the Cavaliers did indeed decide to include him in a “package”. to retrieve Caris LeVert.

While the chance of the calendar makes the two teams face each other tonight, Cleveland thus sends Ricky Rubio to Indiana with especially their first round of Draft 2022 and two “second round” of Draft. A big catch for Cleveland who was looking for an outside, good attacker, to support Darius Garland in attack, and thus compensate for the loss of Collin Sexton.

Caris LeVert will also find Jarrett Allen, his former Nets teammate, and the Cavaliers will undoubtedly replace Isaac Okoro on the bench. Unless LeVert arrives as a 6th man since he has this joker profile, capable of hurting defenses a lot, as he proved in his last game with 42 points against the Bulls!

This arrival could also have consequences for the next “free agency” since Caris LeVert is under contract until 2023, and it could have an impact on the future of Collin Sexton, free agent.

As for the Pacers, this first start may be a sign that the franchise is giving up on the second half of the season, and beginning a reconstruction. Domantas Sabonis and/or Myles Turner could be transferred by Thursday.
