While the Cleveland Cavaliers embark on their playoff push during the second half of this season, it is never too early to look at the potential improvements they can make this coming offseason. They do not have the glaring superstar hole they had last year, as they filled that with the blockbuster Donovan Mitchell trade. However, there are some areas on the Cavs roster that could use an upgrade.

Making a trade for another player is difficult, as they have their first-round picks tied up from the Caris LeVert and Mitchell trades. Even so, there are realistic targets that could be smart additions to the Cavaliers. Here are my top 3 players that the Cavs should trade for this offseason:

Cavaliers trade target No. 1: Reggie Bullock, Dallas Mavericks

The wings have been an issue for the Cavs all season, as Isaac Okoro, Cedi Osman, and Caris LeVert have all been wildly inconsistent this season. Neither one of them is shooting above 36% from 3 and they all have glaring weaknesses that have hurt the Cavs at times.

Enter Reggie Bullock. He has shot 38% from three this season for the Dallas Mavericks and he has shot 43.5% from three since January 1st. He is also a sound perimeter defender for the Mavs, as he is often tasked with guarding the opposing team’s top perimeter threat every night. He is a huge reason why the Mavs are ranked 11th in total defense this season. Bullock is also only making 10 million a season and next year is his contract year, so even if he does not pan out this is a very low-risk, high-reward move for the Cavs.

Trade Proposal:

Cavs receive: Reggie Bullock

Mavs receive: Cedi Osman and a 2023 second-round pick
