Thunder an option for Collin Sexton in free agency?

- by

First off, Cleveland could also risk possibly losing him to another team in free agency as well. There aren’t many teams out there who have the salary cap space that makes sense for Sexton other than the Detroit Pistons, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the New Orleans Pelicans that could outbid Cleveland in free agency. Of those aforementioned teams, the Thunder could be a legitimate threat since, according to sources, Oklahoma City is intrigued by the pairing of Sexton alongside budding superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and their bevy of youngsters.

At some point, Morey’s gonna have to quit it with these outrageous expectations. You’re not gonna get the tier-1 star, nor will you get the tier-2 one with a billion picks.
I’d start looking at guys like McCollum, Sexton, Brogdon, Haliburton, D. Murray + couple picks/young guys – 5:01 PM

Collin Sexton put up 24.3 PPG on 47/37/81 shooting splits.
Yet, he’s treated like he’s a wild gunner who scores only because of volume. If it was 24 PPG on 41/31/81, fine. But it’s not. I don’t get the slander at all. – 7:21 PM

#Cavs Collin Sexton after practice today putting up shots.
J.B. Bickerstaff said Sexton was the same at practice after there was no agreement on a contract extension.
“He was doing all the things that we asked him to do, that he’s always done […] He’s going to be him.” PM
