post draft deal if Det misses out on upper tier pg prospects in draft:
DG for Sekou and KT both really nice defenders with upside esp Sekou.
not even sure DG has done enough for Detroit to have any interest but they might given they need a pg
draft day deal:
This one sends DG to Spurs who will make him earn it and maybe salvage his career
The cavs get a decent upside off guard in Johnson that fits better next to Sexton and take a flier or just waive lyles and get Spurs 2020 2nd that will be higher than usual spurs 2nds.
Now I am not suggesting they should trade him now, but if they decide to stop tanking he will be coming off the bench much of next season at the rate Sexton is going right now.
I dont know if they have any aspirations to try Garland off ball, but I can't see it working out.
I don't know if Detroit would do Garland for Sekou straight up, let alone adding in KT. I think they would be more prone to offering up their 1st round pick from this draft for Garland if they aren't enamored with the PG prospects in their range.
So say the Cavs pick in the top 2 and Detroit stays in the 6-8 range, Cavs draft Wiseman at #2 as BPA and fit, and the Cavs trade Garland for the #6-8 pick and draft Deni Avdija.
Cavs 2020-21 roster:
Obviously expecting Drummond to opt-in.
Pistons 20-21 roster
Plus whatever they get in FA with $70 million
