The Los Angeles Lakers will have a busy offseason ahead of them.

They need to decide whether to trade or keep Russell Westbrook, and there are voids in the roster that need to be filled.

Collin Sexton, a developing star guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, is rumored to be a target for the Lakers.

Via Lakers Daily: The Lakers are reportedly interested in Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton, according to a recent report.

"'Anyway, there are a lot of things to think about here,' Hoops Wire's Sam Amico observed. '[Darius] Garland and Sexton are both represented by the same agent. Garland became the Cavs' public face. 

Caris LeVert, who plays the same position as Sexton, was acquired by the Cavs in a trade. And Sexton is generating a lot of buzz

with a few league sources telling me that even LeBron James' Lakers are interested (which isn't going to happen, but explaining why is another full day of Dribbles).'"

Due to a damaged meniscus in his left knee, Sexton, who is 23 years old, has missed the majority of this season. Last season, however, he averaged 24.3 points per game for the Cavs' young team.

Next month, he will be a free agent, and he is likely to fetch a sizable contract from someone.

If the Lakers were to get him, it would almost certainly have to be through a sign-and-trade involving Russell Westbrook. 

But why would the Cleveland Cavaliers, a defensive-minded team on the upswing, desire Westbrook?

Another issue is that, while Sexton is an excellent scorer, at 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds, he is a defensive liability and more of an off-guard, as he is not a gifted passer or floor general.
