Utah traded three-time All-Star Donovan Mitchell on Thursday to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Lauri MarkkanenCollin SextonOchai Agbaji, three unprotected first-round picks, and two pick swaps.

The Jazz have entered a complete rebuild after moving Mitchell and trading three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves in July.

The Los Angeles Lakers are interested in Bogdanovic, Conley, and Clarkson but want to preserve cap space for next offseason, according to USA Today’s Jeff Zillgitt.

Utah currently has 17 guaranteed contracts on the roster, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks.

Conley ($22.7 million) and Bogdanovic ($19.6 million) have the two highest salaries on the Jazz, per Spotrac. Clarkson is slated to make $13.3 million during the 2022-23 season.
