Collin Sexton staying put in Utah?

- by

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said on The Hoop Collective podcast that while there was some speculation Utah would flip Sexton in another deal, he was told the 23-year-old won’t be going anywhere. “I checked in, because I wondered could they reroute Collin Sexton? Maybe to the Lakers, for example, you know,” Windhorst said at the 18:56 mark. “But I was told no, that Sexton’s gonna be in Utah, at least that’s the plan.”

Ryan McDonald @ryanwmcdonald
New Jazzmen Collin Sexton and Stanley Johnson might have to fight over who wears No. 2. Johnson has claimed it. I also feel like someone new has already claimed Lauri Markkanen’s 24, but I can’t think who if so. Ochai Agbaji’s college 30 should be open – 8:14 PM

Donovan Mitchell is better than an uninjured Collin Sexton. I guess you just have to decide if he’s Lauri Markkanen, Ochai Ogbaji, three unprotected first-rounders, two pick swaps and $63 million more in salary better than an uninjured Collin Sexton. – 5:33 PM

Eric Pincus @EricPincus
Teams are hard-capped when they use their NTMLE, BAE or acquire a player via sign-and-trade — so Utah is now hard-capped via Sexton (or will be once it’s executed officially) – 4:09 PM
Brad Townsend @townbrad
Thought Sexton would have been a fine Maverick, big clearly Cleveland had much bigger plans in mind. – 4:09 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
There’s a very reasonable argument to be made that Sexton, Markkanen, Agbaji plus three unprotected firsts (and two swaps) is superior to the rumored Grimes/Toppin/Quickley/McBride packages.
Sexton, 23, is by far the best player from the group. Agbaji was the 14th pick in June. – 4:09 PM
Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST
During the 2020-21 season, Collin Sexton ranked 12th in the #NBA in pick and roll scoring and shot an eFG% of 71% in unguarded catch and shoot situations. – 4:08 PM
Kevin O’Connor @KevinOConnorNBA
It’ll be a glorious tank for the Utah Jazz. This roster is so weak:
Conley / Clarkson / Butler
Sexton / Beasley / Agbaji
Bogdanovic / THT
Vanderbilt / Markkanen
Kessler / Gay
A ton of firsts plus swaps, more vets to deal, and a frontrunner in the Victor Wembanyama sweepstakes. – 4:01 PM
Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
as of the time of this tweet, heres what Utah got for Donovan Mitchell + Gobert:
• Malik Beasley

Also, the @Utah Jazz started targeting Collin Sexton very early in this process.
His name was floated around even before the the NBA Draft and the Rudy Gobert trade.
So Sexton may not be Barrett, but he’s been a target for months. – 3:50 PM

I wrote this in my MIP story today: Collin Sexton at +8000 is great value if you had any hope that he’d end up on a different team. Now he is. I will be betting Sexton now. – 3:43 PM
