Cleveland receives: Cam Johnson (S&T), Dorian Finney-Smith & Royce O'Neale
Brooklyn receives: Jarrett Allen & Caris LeVert (S&T)

I think this trade makes sense for a few reasons.

For Cleveland, it's a no-brainer in my opinion. Mobley is more effective at the 5. Long term, it might be a good idea to make him our starter at that position. Cam Johnson is one of the best wing shooters in the league. He fits this roster like a glove. Finney-Smith is a hard worker with a good reputation & O'Neale is friends with Mitchell. You can't ever have too many wings.

For Brooklyn, it's a bit more complicated but here's why I think they might consider it. Jarrett Allen & Caris LeVert are Sean Marks guys. Marks inherited the worst job in professional sports & did one of the most impressive rebuilds in history. Allen & LeVert were part of that turnaround, so this trade assumes he wants to put the band back together. For that to happen, he'd have to let Claxton walk or do a S&T to get assets. I think Allen is an upgrade over Claxton as well.

Thoughts? S&T's are a bit complicated so I'd like to know how to make this trade happen. More players need to be added?

So it's close, so I really need to know the salaries involved in these S&Ts.

With the cap hold on Cameron Johnson, I think Brooklyn is over the luxury tax line and thus can not do a S&T.

The team receiving the player that is S&T can not receive any other player. So this would have to be at least 2 separate trades and I'm not sure the money works if you do that.

With all that said, Cleveland would want a lot more than that for Allen and LeVert.

@ShaqIsBack Utah got Sexton plus other players in the Mitchell trade. Sexton was a S&T.

allen is a marginal upgrade and not worth giving up assets for when you have claxton. only really makes sense is you have a great sign and trade lined up for claxton or he's not interested in returning. Targetting levert makes sense he played well in brooklyn with dinwiddie before they should keep some of those 3 and d wings.
