Boston Celtics Receive: G Collin Sexton, F Taurean Prince
Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: G Marcus Smart, F Aaron Nesmith, 2023 first-round pick

Collin Sexton has taken his offensive game up a notch and that showed this season. At the same time, teammates might have been a bit disgruntled by his play. It seems as though the Cleveland Cavaliers are best suited moving on from him via trade.

If the rumors are true, Cleveland could clean things up a bit in a trade and keep Darius Garland as the impact performer on the perimeter. He plays with a style that is more team-friendly in the sense that he plays more off-the-catch and within the flow of the offense.

The Celtics need to find an answer at the point guard position because the last two attempts to do so have ended poorly. For a team that recently had aspirations of contending for a championship, the current options they face are just not going to cut it.

Boston has loaded up on prospects that they could send away. Aaron Nesmith is a name that will be seen in many rumors going forward. Marcus Smart and a first-round pick in 2023 would finish the deal.

The Cavaliers would be mostly trying to avoid having to be the team to pay Sexton on his next contract while recovering some value in a potential deal. The Celtics have some intriguing options to offer and would be a worthwhile trade partner for Cleveland.

Let’s take a closer look and see how this NBA trade scenario centered around Collin Sexton would benefit both sides right away.
