Alex Caruso is expected to be a target of the Cleveland Cavaliers in the upcoming offseason this summer.

Per Chris Fedor of, the Cavs want to bolster their backcourt line and plan to pursue Caruso and T.J. McConnell of the Indiana Pacers.

“Any potential free agency list should start with Indiana’s T.J. McConnell and Los Angeles pest Alex Caruso. Both are Cavs targets. Both fit really well.

Some prefer Caruso. He’s younger, bigger, stronger and can guard multiple spots. Others like McConnell more. Even though he doesn’t shoot many 3s, he’s more polished, capable of filling in as starter, puts pressure on the rim and was the league’s total steals leader,” Fedor reports.

Caruso averaged 6.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals in 58 games with the Lakers. The versatile guard will be a free agent this summer.
