After getting eliminated in five games by the Boston Celtics, the Cleveland Cavaliers face a pivotal offseason with several important decisions.

First off, the Cavaliers must find a new head coach after they fired J.B. Bickerstaff.

Next, the team will need to figure out what to do with their star backcourt of Darius Garland and Donovan Mitchell.

While both guards showed flashes of how their partnership could work, it seems destined for them to be split up after seeing mixed results in the postseason.

Mitchell is the name to watch as he’s set to play on the final year of his contract before hitting unrestricted free agency next summer.

Cleveland has reportedly been intent on keeping Mitchell though the superstar guard could force his way out with a trade if he doesn’t accept a contract extension via Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com.

“The Cleveland Cavaliers will not risk losing Donovan Mitchell for nothing and will trade him if he doesn’t accept their extension offer, rather than letting him play out next season on an expiring contract,” Pluto reported.

Mitchell is one of the few players on the trade market that could swing the title race and he would immediately vault to the top of several teams’ wishlists if he’s made available.

Teams like the Miami Heat, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers would likely register interest in Mitchell which would set up a bidding war for his services.

Over the next couple of months, the situation absolutely bears monitoring as Mitchell could be the difference for a team’s title aspirations.
