The pros and cons of the Cleveland Cavaliers trading out of the top 3 in the 2021 NBA Draft. 

The Cleveland Cavaliers have done a great job in compiling young talent over the last few years, but this is a team that needs to find the new face of the franchise – especially if they don’t believe Collin Sexton to be that player.

Heading into the 2021 NBA Draft, the Cavs will have an opportunity to select a top 3 player that will have the potential to grow and develop into a key player for this team in the years to come. On the other hand, the Cavs could also elect to shop the pick in an attempt to gain additional pieces or assets.

With the potential of Cleveland making a move, we explore the pros and cons of the Cavs trading out of the No. 3 spot in the NBA Draft.
