The 76ers have had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the Cavs for Kyle Korver, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The 76ers just lost a couple wings in Justin Anderson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, so it sounds like they're not wasting time to replace them. Presumably, the 76ers would have to throw a pick in on this one, or maybe they can package someone like Richaun Holmes to entice the Cavs.

The Cavs have waived Kendrick Perkins.

Perkins was picked up during Cleveland's postseason run to serve as an emergency depth guy, but with the Cavs likely going into a rebuilding phase, there's no incentive to keep him around.

Collin Sexton hit 9-of-22 shots, a 3-pointer and 8-of-10 free throws for 27 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes of Monday's double-overtime loss against the Lakers on Monday night.

This was as good a Summer League game as you'll ever see and the 19-year-old's intensity was more reminiscent of an NBA Finals game than Summer League. Sexton was doing it on both ends of the court and he gained some tremendous experience in this game. Sexton was all over the court in the fourth quarter and two overtime periods, and outside of a missed free throw and a key turnover (which would have been overturned with replay), was fantastic. Yes, his stat line could have been better, but if you watched the game, it's clear that Cleveland fans are going to quickly fall in love with this kid.

Collin Sexton finished Sunday's victory with 18 points, six assists, three rebounds and three turnovers in 27 minutes, making 6-of-14 FGs and 6-of-8 FTs.

The Cavs' Summer League coach, James Posey, has been encouraging Sexton to play to his aggressive instincts in Vegas. "'We gotta push the pace. Make or miss, get the ball down the court,'" Posey told Sexton. "It gives him the opportunity to go one-on-one, or play it out and get a pick-and-roll to go downhill ... He’s been controlling the game for us." Cleveland could turn Sexton loose as a rookie now that LeBron is gone, and his knack for drawing fouls should help points-league owners, but concerns about efficiency and turnovers may depress his fantasy value on draft day.

John Holland made 8-of-12 field goals with four 3-pointers to score 23 points on Sunday.

Holland's line was somewhat barren otherwise, with two rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes. He shot just 28.8% in limited action with the Cavs last season, when he was playing on a two-way deal, and it's doubtful he'll surface with fantasy value at any league depth this season. We'll see if he can duplicate tonight's efficiency in the semifinals vs. L.A. on Monday.

Channing Frye has agreed to a one-year, $2.4 million deal with the Cavs.

The Cavs are looking to round out their roster and Frye is a reliable veteran that will provide the team with outside shooting up front. He spent 2.5 seasons in Cleveland before being traded to the Lakers at the February deadline. Frye is unlikely to make a fantasy impact, as he averaged just 5.0 points per game last season.
Jul 14 - 1:31 PM

Collin Sexton scored 25 points (9-of-15 FG, 7-of-9 FT) and had four rebounds, seven assists and one steal in the Cavaliers summer league win over the Kings on Wednesday.

This was his best performance of the summer league so far and it earned him and the Cavs another game in Vegas. Sexton's seemed to improve in each outing in July, so we'll see if this trend continues in the next game. He'll definitely be in contention for the starting role, maybe not from the start of 2018-19 but at some point in the season.
Jul 11 - 6:43 PM

Cedi Osman and Ante Zizic will not play on Wednesday.

It's just a day off for these two guys. Osman has been one of the stars in Las Vegas, and he mentioned how he's excited for the opportunity in front of him. He's certainly a name to remember in drafts in the coming months.

Collin Sexton scored 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting in Monday's Summer League win over the Pacers, adding four assists, one 3-pointer and four turnovers across 30 minutes.

Sexton was a step ahead of his man on offense and did a nice job of shutting down Aaron Holiday on the defensive end of the floor, holding him to 4-of-14 shooting. This was one of Sexton's more efficient stat lines at Summer League, with him also going 2-of-3 from the charity stripe, but it could be tough for him to make much of an impact his rookie year while George Hill and Jordan Clarkson are around.
Jul 9 - 7:03 PM

Ante Zizic (rest) will not suit up for Monday's Summer League game against the Pacers.

Zizic has already proven himself at Summer League, so expect the Cavs to give him an easy schedule the rest of the way.
Jul 9 - 4:36 PM

The Cavaliers are looking to trade Kyle Korver.

This was inevitable as soon as LeBron James left. With the Cavaliers about to press reset, Korver could be one of several Cleveland veterans on the move. He's owed $7.5 million for 2018-19, but his contract isn't guaranteed for 2019-20 which is nice for teams in need of a one-year solution for perimeter shooting. Korver is 37 and won't be anything more than a 3-point specialist for deep-league owners regardless of where he lands.
Jul 9 - 12:25 PM

The Kings have shown interest in Rodney Hood according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.

The Kings were linked to Mario Hezonja and threw a $78 million offer sheet to Zach LaVine, so they are clearly in the market for another scoring wing. Hood is coming off a disaster of a season, but the Cavaliers extended him a qualifying offer which gives them the ability to match offers. The Cavs are over the cap, while the Kings have close to $20 million in cap space and could make Hood a "significant offer."
Jul 9 - 9:40 AM

Collin Sexton scored 14 points with two rebounds, two assists, one turnover, one block and four fouls in 29 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

He's not shy and he's not afraid of contact. Sexton hurt his right elbow in the first half and even had to shoot a free throw lefty, but he was fine after getting checked out by the staff. Sexton projects as more of a score-first guard, but he's grasping the NBA offense well in the early going.
Jul 7 - 11:38 PM

Ante Zizic made 11-of-14 from the field for 25 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and five turnovers in 25 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

Make it two stat-stuffing games for Zizic after a 16-point, 14-board Friday. He's established position extremely well on offense, which has helped him make such a high percentage from the field. Zizic hasn't fared well on the defense end in Vegas and that's clearly part of his game he needs to work on. He should continue to post big lines as he locks down the backup C role.
Jul 7 - 11:36 PM

Cedi Osman (rest) and Bill Preston (quad contusion) are out Saturday's game against the Bulls.

Preston had some nice plays in his debut on Friday night. He's on a two-way deal and hopefully this quad issue won't keep him out long.
