Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly among the teams to have serious interest in the Philadelphia 76ers’ superstar Ben Simmons.
According to Chris Fedor of cleveland.com, prized rookie Evan Mobley and explosive guard Darius Garland are close to untouchables in a potential trade deal.
Sources maintain the Cavs don’t have any “untouchables.” However, prized rookie Evan Mobley and rising point guard Darius Garland are closest to that designation. The likelihood of either player being moved is incredibly low, Fedor wrote.
That means Collin Sexton and Isaac Okoro are available for the right compensation in a potential trade deal. Sexton is up for his rookie extension, coming off a great year with the Cavs.
He 24.3 points a game last season, shooting 37 percent from deep and a 57 percent true shooting percentage. Sexton has an NBA role, but teams aren’t sure it is as a max-contract lead guard.
