Jarrett Allen, as expected, is coming back to the Cavaliers.

As first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (and confirmed by Fear the Sword), Allen is coming back to Cleveland on a five-year, $100 million deal.

Allen, 23, first came to the Cavs as part of the James Harden trade. From the moment the Cavs acquired him, the plan was always to bring him back and make him part of the core going forward. Despite Cleveland drafting Evan Mobley last week, the plan hasn’t pivoted.

This, per sources, is also a straight-up five year deal with no options and is fully guaranteed.
