The Cavaliers have to decide if some combination of Sexton, Darius Garland, and Isaac Okoro are the backcourt of the future in Cleveland, and it’s a decision coming up fast as Sexton is extension eligible this offseason.
After Tuesday’s lottery, the Cavaliers are picking No. 3 in a guard-heavy draft at the top – Cade Cunningham, Jalen Green, Jalen Suggs – which has sparked another report that Cavaliers’ front office is considering trading Sexton.
According to league sources, the Cavaliers have begun to explore trade options involving leading scorer Collin Sexton There’s belief around the league that Cleveland prefers to move on from Sexton, rather than sign him to a deal that would greatly inhibit their flexibility moving forward. Whether Cavaliers GM Koby Altman can find a trade partner willing to send much back for Sexton remains to be seen, but expect the Cavaliers to kick the tires on offers at least.
