In recent drafts, the Cavaliers have loaded up their backcourt with Collin Sexton, Darius Garland, and Isaac Okoro. Of the three, Sexton has proven to be the most well-rounded player on offense, leading the team in scoring in the past two seasons.

Even with Sexton producing career-bests in scoring (24.3 PPG) and assists (4.4 APG), many believe that Cleveland could entertain offers for him this offseason. Reports have shown that the Cavaliers believe that Garland fits what they are looking for in a leader more, which could make Sexton an intriguing name to watch.

Dating back to his days at Alabama in college, Sexton has never lacked confidence, and he is able to score in a variety of ways. If the Cavaliers do decided to move forward without Sexton as part of their future plans, there could be a few teams that conjure up offers for the former eighth-overall pick from the 2018 NBA Draft.
