Rubio has played together with Mitchell from 2017 to 2019 for the Utah Jazz. The Spanish point guard then left for the Phoenix Suns. Now the two guards will reunite on the Cavaliers after 3 years apart.

Mitchell was more than excited to play with Rubio again and said that he learned a lot from the Spanish player.

"He [Rubio] really helped me lock in on the little details as far as my work, as far as my craft, as far as the possession game," said Mitchell in the Cavaliers' introductory press conference.

"Just being able to watch him lead our team from the point guard position and allowing me to kinda take the reins as a young guy, which I didn't even expect coming into the league, and just kinda teaching me the little things throughout the game," Mitchell continued.

"I'm forever grateful for Ricky Rubio, and to be back here with him, he's a little bit older now, but he's still the lighthearted, fun guy that I've always known," Mitchell added.

"I've gone to Spain to see him and hung out with him. So to be back here with him is truly special," Mitchell concluded.
