The Cleveland Cavaliers (4-15) are hoping to get some more young players, and appear to be zeroing in on Philadelphia 76ers G Markelle Fultz to get started.

According to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, the Cavs have "dangled" veteran Kyle Korver as well as a protected draft pick for Fultz.

Kyler noted that Fultz has been having a rough time in his second year in the NBA. He is reportedly dealing with shoulder and wrist injuries, and is struggling on the court as well.

Through 19 games this season, Fultz is averaging 8.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game.

Korver is 37 and having an equally frustrating season in Cleveland. He has yet to start in a game and is averaging 6.8 points/game, 1.8 rebounds/game, and 1.1 assists/game.

Kyler also noted in his report that other teams have reached out to the 76ers in an attempt to bring the 20-year-old Fultz into the fold.

Fultz was the No. 1 overall pick out of Washington in the 2017 NBA Draft.
