Here are four trade ideas from around the ‘net that feature the Cavs.
The Cavs are going to be involved in a lot of trade proposals this summer, these are three of the worst so far. They all center around a common idea which is the Cavs are in some sort of rush to trade Sexton. The team could easily just re-sign him, it’s not like it’s Kevin Porter Jr. all over again where he’s constantly getting himself in trouble.
Sexton doesn’t have to be traded. Assuming he has already proven the trade proposal to be less than respectable. To get Sexton, you gotta give something back with real value. Not the value you wish it had.
There’s one ok trade that has made the list today, mostly because of how it can improve the team by giving the Cavs an eventual replacement for Kevin Love and improve the low-post defense with Jarrett Allen.

Coby White is fine, but he’s a lesser version of Collin Sexton. White is a very bad defender, which is admittedly better than Sexton’s terrible defensive skill set, but he’s also significantly worse than Sexton as an offensive player. what can White do that Sexton can’t? His being three inches taller isn’t a selling point.
The rest of the haul made me want to throw the entire city of Chicago into a trash bin out of anger. A 33-year-old Thaddeus Young? Tomas Satoransky is a fine backup, but he’s going to be 30 soon, and the point of the trade is supposed to strengthen the Cavs for either the future or a playoff push. This trade really does nothing.
It does worse than nothing when you factor in Cedi Osman and Larry Nance Jr. Osman has lost some support but he’s proven to be a fine player when given the ability to play-make and Nance is too valuable to throw him in as an add-on. He’s a guy who could net a respectable draft pick on his own.
No. Stop it.
