“Cleveland got a dude I’m real cool with, Collin Sexton,” Edwards said. “He’s from Atlanta. Yeah, I would love to play with Cleveland.”
The University of Georgia product is one of the top-rated prospects in the upcoming 2020 NBA Draft.
With the 2020 NBA Draft Lottery taking place on Thursday, it’s possible that the Cavs could find themselves in position to select Edwards.
Cleveland finished the 2019-20 season with the worst record in the Eastern Conference at 19-46. The team has a solid young core in Sexton, Darius Garland and Kevin Porter Jr., but it definitely could use Edwards to bolster it offense.
In his lone season at Georgia, Edwards averaged 19.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.
Pairing him with his good friend in Sexton would be quite the backcourt for the Cavs.
