Report: Former Cavs Star Was ‘Happy’ to Be Traded From Franchise
- Updated: August 17, 2020
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been going through a heavy rebuild over the last two seasons.
As a result, veteran players haven’t been thrilled with the constant losing in Cleveland.
“Clarkson was happy that the Cavs traded him to the Jazz this season but apprehensive about what he might find there, and he’s loved the experience, too,” Vardon wrote.
Clarkson, 28, played in 138 games for the Cavs for parts of three seasons. He was one of the Cavs’ best players during the 2018-19 season.
Yet, Clarkson has thrived in Utah. In 42 regular season games with the Jazz, the shooting guard put up 15.6 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
Now, the veteran is preparing for a playoff run against the Denver Nuggets. With multiple Jazz players out due to various reasons, Clarkson will have a huge role in the first round series.
If Clarkson were still with the Cavs, he would be watching the playoffs from home. The Cavs finished the 2019-20 season in last place in the Eastern Conference.
