Garland, 20, is in his second season with the Cavs.
The Cavs selected the youngster with the No. 5 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. Although Garland struggled in his first year in the league, he has been marvelous so far this season.
As a matter of fact, Garland is averaging a career-high 17.2 points, 6.3 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game this season. The Cavs hold a 4-3 record through seven games.
However, the recent slew of injuries could interrupt the Cavs’ strong start to the season.
