NBA Rumor: Collin Sexton Extension?

14 rumors in this storyline

Cavs want long-term deal with Collin Sexton

The Cavaliers remain interested in a long-term deal with guard Collin Sexton next summer after failing to agree on a rookie extension prior to the season. Sources said Sexton sought a four-year deal in the $100 million range, but the Cavaliers wanted a fifth year on any agreement. Cleveland has revamped its roster, adding Evan Mobley, Ricky Rubio and Markkanen, and currently is in the midst of a strong 7-3 start in the Eastern Conference. Sexton’s role has changed with additional talent around him, and the lack of an extension provides both sides with the opportunity to evaluate the situation. Sexton is averaging 16 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists so far this season.

Terry Pluto: An NBA executive suggested the Cavs could consider that because it’s a salary cap crusher to pay Allen and Sexton both long-term contracts over $100 million. This guy likes Sexton as a player, but not on a maximum contract. As I wrote last weekend, Sexton may want something like the 5-year, $163 million deal Sacramento gave guard De’Aaron Fox in 2020. Their stats as similar. But is Sexton a maximum contract player simply because the Kings gave the money to Fox?
