Cavaliers Exercise 2024/25 Option On Evan Mobley

The Cavaliers have exercised their fourth-year option on Evan Mobley, a source tells Chris Fedor of (Twitter link).

The move guarantees Mobley’s $11,227,657 salary for the 2024/25 season. He will become eligible for a rookie scale extension next summer and could be a restricted free agent in 2025 if he doesn’t reach a new deal before then.

The No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 draft, Mobley became an immediate starter in Cleveland and helped transform the Cavs into a playoff team. At age 22, he is one of the building blocks of an organization that hopes to take the next step after last year’s first-round ouster.

Mobley averaged 16.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per game last season while shooting 55.4% from the floor. He also blocked 1.5 shots per night and is already considered one of the best defensive big men in the league.

As our rookie scale option decision tracker shows, Mobley’s option is the only one the Cavaliers have to address this fall.
