Cleveland Cavaliers scoring guard Collin Sexton is expected to be on the move this offseason, as he is considered ‘very available’ in trade talks, per Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.
Sexton is coming off a career year in Cleveland, averaging 24.3 points per game. He will be eligible for a rookie scale extension during the offseason, which is why Cleveland is exploring trade offers.
The Cavs are expected to re-sign Jarrett Allen, who is a restricted free agent, in a deal that could take a $100M to be concluded.
So, Cleveland is looking to offload Sexton as keeping both of them will make their roster too expensive despite being a rebuilding franchise.
Furthermore, according to Lloyd, the Cavaliers will look to build their perimeter around Darius Garland, who was selected ahead of Sexton for a spot on the U.S. Select Team.
