The Cleveland Cavaliers have hardly been mentioned as among the teams in the hunt for the big names this coming NBA offseason. However, that is no indication that the Cavs will not try to pitch to the upcoming free agents.

Among the big names include Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, and Kawhi Leonard. Of the mix, only Jimmy Butler has come close to possibly signing with the Cavs although the All-Star is likely to prioritize teams with immediate chances of making it to the playoffs. One team said to be in hot pursuit it the Los Angeles Lakers.

Things should pick up in the offseason once the Cavs are able to clean up their roster. But one name expected to be retained is Collin Sexton. Heading into his sophomore season, there is a growing belief that the Cavs may best get a point guard to play alongside him so that the 20-year-old can show more of his offensive prowess on the hardcourt, Fansided reported.

Looking at the big names, Irving would be a good fit although Uncle Drew is unlikely to consider returning to Ohio at this point. Also, Irving is likely to want a long-term max contract. The Cavs could study it unless they look at other cheaper and viable options.

There are several names that come to mind. The list includes Jamal Crawford and Terry Rozier. Crawford could come in not only to play but mentor the 20-year-old but is likely to be the last on the list. He is already 39-years-old and could retire if he so does choose.

Rozier, on the other hand, would make sense. The only problem is that he will be on the restricted list of the Boston Celtics. The Celts could be open to releasing him if the Cavs are willing to unload some of their stars. So the question right now is who.

If not a veteran guard, the Cavs could look for someone to tandem with Sexton. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is someone who can complement the 8th overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, particularly on the defensive end. With someone who can hold up the defensive fort, Sexton would benefit in the open court.

The rebuilding process for the Cavs is expected to take some time. Sexton has shown promise but the real challenge is getting the right mix of players to play alongside him.
