The Cleveland Cavaliers have dominated NBA rumors of late, with the latest reports suggesting they are among teams interested in acquiring Indiana Pacers forward Doug McDermott.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to speed up their rebuilding process, for which they will need a veteran presence that can produce goods at high efficiency. According to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com, Doug McDermott is one player the Cavs will consider acquiring in free agency.
Doug McDermott had a terrific season for the Pacers last season and is entering 2021 NBA Free Agency as an unrestricted free agent. Multiple teams have shown interest in him as per NBA rumors, and a major reason behind that has been his shooting.
With the uncertainty surrounding Kevin Love’s future, adding a player of Doug McDermott’s quality seems like a sensible proposition for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He could also slot into a starting role alongside Darius Garland, with Collin Sexton expected to be traded away this summer.
McDermott started 29 of the 66 games for the Pacers last season, so it won’t be a new experience for him as such if he is asked to take up a starting role for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
