The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to make some moves during this offseason.
One move in particular could be moving Collin Sexton.
Sexton just finished up his third year in the NBA, which was his best so far.
With his name popping up in many trade talks, I feel like Collin Sexton isn’t getting any respect from NBA analysts and reporters.

He averaged 24.3 points per game, while shooting 47.5 percent from the field.
Sexton has a great deal of talent, but is too busy stuck on a rebuilding Cavaliers team.
The Cavaliers have not been competitive since LeBron James left for the Los Angeles Lakers.
They have turned into one of the worst franchises in the entire league once again.
A constant rebuild has been in their cards since the departure and no one knows when it will end.
Sexton was selected with the eighth pick in the draft and was thought to be a building block for the future.
Despite the good numbers, the team has not been winning.
Also, there have been concerns with his chemistry with the rest of the roster.
Sexton is in line for a big extension that the Cavaliers are hesitant to give him.
There are two teams that should be calling the Cavaliers to work out a deal.
2. Philadelphia 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers are trying to figure out what they want to do this offseason.
After a disappointing second-round exit, the 76ers are is desperate need of change.
Their biggest need is to get rid of Ben Simmons.
The playoffs were dismal for the young star and it seems like a change of scenery is a must for both sides.
Simmons is on the trade block as of now and the Cavaliers should make an offer.
He does have a ton of potential still and maybe the Cavaliers can tap into all of it.
Sexton would fit with the 76ers and space the floor for Joel Embiid.
Also, he is not afraid to get a bucket in an iso as well.
He is not that bad of a defender either.
This is a trade that can definitely get done.
1. New York Knicks
The most aggressive team to inquire about Sexton has been the New York Knicks.

This does not come as a surprise after their first-round series against the Atlanta Hawks.
Trae Young outplayed all of the guards the Knicks played in that series.
Some had to be benched for the majority of it, such as Elfrid Payton.
That is where acquiring Sexton comes into play.
Sexton is not scared of the limelight and is ready to attack anyone that is guarding him.
That is the perfect type of player for this Knicks roster.
The Knicks are already working the phones, but a deal needs to be done soon, before other teams begin to call the Cavaliers.
