Grading the trade proposal between the San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers.

With point guards in mind, Bleacher Report NBA writer Greg Swartz recently proposed a mock deal to bring Darius Garland from Cleveland to San Antonio.


There are no shortage of moving parts in this deal that would shake up both rosters, but perhaps this mega-deal could benefit each team.

In exchange for the star guard, the Spurs would package three players—Keldon Johnson, Tre Jones, and Malaki Branham and a pick to take on Garland and his $39.4 million average salary. Would it be a worthwhile trade for Victor Wembanyama's development? Let's break it down and give a grade to each team involved.
