(WJW) — Sources say Cleveland Cavaliers Larry Nance Jr is part of a three-way sign and trade sending him to Portland.

In a tweet, Adrian Wojnarowski says that Cleveland is acquiring Chicago’s Lauri Markkanen as part of the deal.

Sources say restricted free agent Markkanen is on a four-year, $67M deal in a sign-and-trade.

ESPN says Chicago will receive Derrick Jones Jr. from the Blazers, a lottery-protected 2022 first-round pick from Portland, and a 2023 second-round pick that Cleveland previously acquired from Denver.
