After what was an ultimately disappointing end to the 2021-22 season, the Cavs are now back to the drawing board. This team showed a lot of potential this past season and if they are able to make the right moves this summer, then Cleveland could emerge as a real threat next season.
Apart from a couple of extensions that need to be ironed out with a couple of key players on the squad, the Cavs are reportedly also in the market for some fresh faces. According to Evan Dammarell of Right Down Euclid, Cleveland has shown interest in Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Milwaukee Bucks teammate, Pat Connaughton:
Not only that but, sources also say that Milwaukee’s Pat Connaughton, as well as Sacramento’s Donte DiVencenzo, could be options as well.

Connaughton, who won the title with the Bucks last season, has a player option on his deal for next season. If he chooses not to opt in, then he will hit free agency and the Cavs could be an interested party.
The same can be said for Donte DiVincenzo, who incidentally, was also part of the Bucks’ 2020-21 championship team. The 6-foot-4 shooting guard was traded to the Sacramento Kings last summer but it sounds like the Cavs are now interested in signing him as a free agent this offseason.
