The Cleveland Cavaliers have begun to explore the trade market for Collin Sexton, league sources tell Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated.

Sexton becomes eligible for a contract extension this offseason and appears likely to seek the max.

There is a belief around the league that the Cavaliers would prefer to trade Sexton rather than extend him. The Cavaliers own the No. 3 overall pick of the draft and could use it on a guard.

The Cavaliers selected Sexton with the eighth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft with the selection acquired from the Boston Celtics as part of the Kyrie Irving trade in 2017.
