CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – The Cleveland Cavaliers have officially traded Guard Jordan Clarkson to the Utah Jazz.

In exchange, Cleveland receives Guard Dante Exum and two future second-round draft picks.

The draft choices are a 2022 second-round pick via San Antonio and a 2023 second-round pick via Golden State.

Exum is a native of Melbourne, Australia and was originally the fifth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. In five seasons in Utah, he averaged 5.7 points and 2.2 assists per game in 215 career contests.
