Bingo! I think he's our most talented player overall & we should do everything in our power to keep him.
I get that, but then you really need is a taller point guard, or even a point forward, who can shoot because Sexton needs maximum spacing. Brining in Isaac doesn't fix the problem for the Cavs. I suspect that as far as the Cavs are concerned, that ship sailed last deadline when Alonzo Ball was still on the Pelicans roster. Because he's a great fit next to Lavine as well and I don't see the Bulls giving him up. Teams don't trade multi-skilled point forwards who can shoot. You build around those guys.
What you don't want to do is trade a premium asset for a guy who can't do what you need him to do to build around Sexton because you still won't have fixed the underlying problem and you'll be down the asset. The Browns did that by reaching on QBs late in the first round for decades. They still didn't have a starting caliber QB and they also didn't have that late first.
