While the Cavaliers are searching for more perimeter shooting, they also remain in the market for a point guard, per Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com.
Fedor linked both Celtics free agent Brad Wanamaker and Raul Neto to the Cavs, though eto just signed a deal with the Wizards. So that leaves Wanameker, and of course, multiple other options that would come, presumably at a discount.
So far, all the Cavs have done since the draft is trade for Rubio, select center/forward Evan Mobley with the No. 3 overall pick, and re-sign restricted free agent and starting center Jarrett Allen to a contract that is reportedly worth five years and about $100 million.
Of that group, Mobley is expected to be a real difference-maker, so the Cavs have actually done well for themselves.
A separate story from Fedor suggested the Cavs also have explored a potential sign-and-trade for Pelicans guard Josh Hart, though sources told Hoops Wire on Thursday morning that nothing is close on that front.
Basically, more know-how at running the show and playing both guard spots is clearly something that’s being explored.
“The lack of point guard depth showed throughout an injury-wrecked 2020-21 season that forced coach J.B. Bickerstaff to use countless lineups and combinations, sometimes putting guys in uncomfortable positions out of necessity,” Fedor wrote.
