Buy-low target No. 2: Delon Wright, Washington Wizards

Another point guard would be a buy-low target for the Cavaliers, and it’s something of a take-your-pick situation for the Washington Wizards. They have been point guard peddlers over the past two weeks, passing Chris Paul through town and adding Tyus Jones, Ryan Rollins and Jordan Poole to a group that already included Monte Morris and Delon Wright.

Jones and Morris look like prime trade targets for teams that need point guards, but the Cavaliers are shopping in the bargain barrel and have an All-Star starter already in place. The player they can target from that group is Delon Wright.

The journeyman guard is a capable backup point guard, providing immediate insurance against Ricky Rubio coming into training camp and just not having the same burst despite an offseason of rehab. At 6’5″ Wright has enough size to play the 2, giving the Cavs lineup versatility while exponentially increasing the ball-handling and playmaking.

Wright isn’t a knockdown shooter (35.3 percent for his career) but he is an excellent defender and steal-generator who could give the Cavs a very different look in the backcourt. If he is available for a second-round pick and matching salary he could be a smart addition for the Cavaliers.
