The Cavs were already a good team but they have the chance to be downright phenomenal with Mitchell on board.
Mitchell’s trade first felt a bit like a dream but now it has definitely become a reality.

Mitchell is very comfortable and elated to be in Cleveland, as evidenced by a tweet with images of him in his Cavaliers gym clothes, ready to hit the floor, practice his game, and get even better.
With Mitchell on board, these two guys could be reaching their first Finals soon.
Everyone knows that the Cavaliers had a very stellar season last year but they ended up falling short and missed the postseason, despite many great regular season games.
It felt like they were missing something extra to get them to that next level, the level that other playoff contenders are at.
Mitchell could be that missing piece that elevates the team to its true potential.
He was doing tremendous work with the Utah Jazz but that team had far too many problems to make a strong postseason run.
While the Cavaliers aren’t perfect, some would argue they are better equipped to make serious noise in the postseason.
One thing is for sure: the rest of the East was already well aware of the Cavaliers but now they should be afraid of them because of Mitchell.
