Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Collin Sexton has had a roller coaster offseason despite not even being a free agent. The scoring guard had his name included in plenty of NBA trade rumors at the beginning of the offseason, as it sounded like he would be on the move via trade.
The root of those rumors was the Cavaliers and Sexton being way apart on negotiations for a contract extension. Plenty of teams popped up as possible trade destinations leading into the draft. The New York Knicks were one of the teams mentioned most, as their need for a point guard has persisted for way too long.
Ultimately, no deal was made during the 2021 NBA Draft. But, the free agency period would present another opportunity for Sexton to be on the move. Plenty of players changed addresses this offseason, yet Sexton remains part of the Cavaliers organization.
There are now rumors that the two sides have begun talking again and an extension for Sexton is back on the table.
The Cavaliers were able to agree on a deal with center Jarrett Allen, but he was a restricted free agent. Sexton still has one more year remaining on his rookie contract and the sides have until October 18th, the day before the 2021-22 regular season begins, to hammer out a deal.
While the sides are back to talking, that does not guarantee that a deal will get done. A trade could very well still occur, as well.
If that does happen, here are three teams who should still pursue a trade for the former Alabama product.
