On the surface, trading between jazz and cavs on Tuesday is not particularly important for the Warriors and their fans.
But if you dig deep into the details of the trade, Warriors fans will be a little more interested.
In the final deal announced on Tuesday, Cleveland sent security guard Jordan Clarkson to Utah for the 2014 Dante Exum, 2022 second round draft, and 2023 second round draft pick.
It is the draft for 2023 that we will focus on here.
This choice originally belonged to the warriors. But it had traveled a lot in the past six months.

A few weeks later, on July 7, the pelicans took the same two pull picks and sent them to Utah's Derrick Favors Veteran Center.
Then, on Tuesday, the Jazz Exum, the Warriors' 2023 second round, and a 2022 second round they acquired from San Antonio for Clarkson packed.
Do you have it all Good.
Don't worry, we are certain that the choice between now and the 2023 NBA draft (enter sarcasm font) will no longer be traded.

At the moment all Warriors fans have to worry when Smailagic will make his NBA debut. The 19-year-old Serb made the G League shine in eleven games against Santa Cruz this season with an average of 16.8 points and 5.8 rebounds.
