• The Cavaliers may entertain trade offers for Collin Sexton if they are able to lock up Jarrett Allen
  • Sexton could be on the radar of multiple NBA teams
  • The Cavs hold low chances of retaining both Sexton and Allen due to salary cap

The Cleveland Cavaliers need to make some moves this summer, which includes possibly giving up some players.

Most have been keeping an eye on Kevin Love, but this does not mean that young players like Collin Sexton are safe.

When he joined the Cavaliers in 2018, most saw the 6-foot-1 guard out of Alabama as the player who would lead the team to a different route.

Sadly, that has not proven effective thus far as the Cavs continue to search for a new identity since the LeBron James era.

Other than that, there is the money situation the Cavaliers need to figure out. Jarret Allen will become a restricted free agent this offseason, and Cleveland is likely to try and keep the promising center in the mix.

Allen could get offers somewhere in the vicinity of $100 million or more, something the Cavs would try to match.

Assuming that Koby Altman and company successfully do so, they face a new problem next offseason.

Sexton would be hitting free agency at that time as well, likely to seek a long-term deal that is expected to be pricey.

In the eyes of some, the Cavaliers may have a tough time trying to keep both young players with their lofty contracts.

An unnamed NBA executive feels that the Cavs may want to consider a trade involving Sexton.

Cleveland could see its salary cap crushed if they intend to keep both cagers. Also worth considering is the fact that the 22-year-old has allegedly been a ball-dominant player, something that has turned some of his teammates off.

Giving up Sexton may not leave the team worried. They have other stars such as Darius Garland and Isaac Okoro in the mix, players who could help the team start a new era of Cavaliers basketball.

With yet another disappointing season, the Cavs can still re-evaluate the team and experiment on other players to see if they will fit better.

As for Sexton, it remains to be seen if any NBA team would be interested in taking him.

But for a guy who is coming off a good season where he averaged 24.3 points, 4.4 assists, and 3.1 rebounds, teams in dire need of a scorer may come knocking.
