Trade rumors involving Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton just won’t go away. Right now, the 22-year-old guard is being linked to a move away from the Cavs yet again with an Eastern Conference team rumored to be eyeing Sexton.
The Indiana Pacers are believed to be on the brink of a complete squad overhaul in the near future. According to Joe Vardon of The Athletic, the Pacers could be targetting Sexton with Caris LeVert potentially heading to the Cavs:
If the Pacers ultimately decide to rebuild and trade veterans such as Caris LeVert, what he does is something the Cavs don’t have at present as a tall guard who can score consistently. Indiana, sources said, likes the Cavs’ injured guard Collin Sexton as a “terrific scorer,” though the Pacers have not yet brought him up in the discussions they’ve had with Cleveland’s executives.
As the above report states, the Pacers and the Cavs do not appear to be engaged in talks centered around Collin Sexton. Both parties could be in discussion for a potential deal, but as it is, Sexton is not (yet?) on the table.
Sexton, who is set to miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury, is on an expiring deal. He has yet to sign an extension with the Cavs and unless he does, he could walk away from Cleveland in the offseason. If the Cavs have no intention of renewing his current deal then they might as well trade him before the deadline. Otherwise, they will end up losing him for nothing in the summer.
