I think there are a number of teams who need guys who can create their own shot off the dribble and will be enticed by Sexton's PPG and overall efficiency. It won't be hard to talk themselves into the idea that they're buying low and the Cavs are a poorly run organization. But if I'm wrong, then there's absolutely no reason to extend him. If you can't get decent value for him on a rookie contract, then that should inform you as to what his market would be as a RFA.
I'm just not interesting in selling low on any of our young players. I'd rather see what they can become with a better constructed team, some continuity, and some more experience.
I'm not talking about trading him for a late first here. But, if the Cavs decide to hold onto him, then they better be prepared for it to get uncomfortable when they don't extend him early because his number is a ways off from theirs. They better be prepared for it to get uncomfortable if they conclude the team is better off with him coming off the bench. Collin has played three full years in the NBA, missed very few games and started in almost every game he's played. Along with a whole bunch of losing, in games that haven't been particularly close, he's been the constant. At some point, Sexton as a starter needs to become a variable.
Nope, I don't want him uncomfortable, I don't want to drastically overpay him, and I don't want to trade him for peanuts ... so if it comes down to it, I'd be willing to let him walk for nothing.
Which frankly is negotiating 101. If you're not willing to walk away from a bad deal ... you're doing something wrong.
