CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Cavs now have 2 promising young big men for the future, but it wasn’t cheap.

After drafting USC’s Evan Mobley 3rd overall last week, Cleveland ponied up $100 million Monday to keep restricted free agent Jarrett Allen.

Allen was acquired in a midseason trade with Brooklyn and averaged 13 points and 9 rebounds per game in 51 games with Cleveland.
