Has a 12' vertical leap reach and can easily play 1-5 defensively. Does he fix the spacing issue? obviously his lack of shooting says otherwise, but I imagine his polarity as a driver and playmaker easily puts DG and Sexton in position for open shots playing off this beast. Banres for me as to be above Green despite Green being so appealing as a guy who can shoot like some of the best shooters in the NBA can. It really comes down to if Sexton is willing to take a lesser role for the Cavs if in fact they are wanting Green as their first option. If Sexton is into it cool, but as some assume he could expect to get a big offer sheet in RFA and the only way Cavs match after drafting another guard is if he is still in the sl. So trading him is the rumor.
I think they draft Barnes or Mobley and keep Sexland ultimately paying Sexton less than a max and if anything bring Okoro off the bench putting the ball in his hands like at the end of the season...
Sexton and his agent can think they are going to get whatever they want BUT I have a suspicion that there are not many teams, if any at all, lined up clamoring to pay Collin Sexton big long-term money
I really do feel like the Cavs like Sexton more than the rest of the the league likes Sexton and you would find his value surprisingly low if he hit the open market.
Sexton to me seems like he might have a Reggie Jackson type of career where he's bouncing around because nobody will pay him long-term money.
Detroit paid Jackson ... but I'm not sure either team would say they won the deal.February 19, 2015: As part of a 3-team trade, Reggie Jackson traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Detroit Pistons; the Detroit Pistons traded D.J. Augustin, Kyle Singler and a 2019 2nd round draft pick (Isaiah Roby was later selected) to the Oklahoma City Thunder; the Detroit Pistons traded a 2017 2nd round draft pick (Thomas Bryant was later selected) to the Utah Jazz; the Oklahoma City Thunder traded Grant Jerrett, Kendrick Perkins, Tibor Pleiß and a 2018 1st round draft pick (Josh Okogie was later selected) to the Utah Jazz; and the Utah Jazz traded Enes Kanter and Steve Novak to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Jackson also wasn't nearly as good as Sexton is now.
