Report: Cavaliers' Collin Sexton Finished in Cleveland

Earlier this week we brought you the reports the Cleveland Cavaliers were interested in moving the #3 draft pick and it turns out that's likely not the case at all. According to multiple reports, the Cavaliers plan on trading Collin Sexton this summer as the team has become frustrated with the ball-hungry guard.

There were multiple run-ins last season in Cleveland as Sexton had a tremendous amount of conflict with his teammates. With the guards available at the #3 spot of the draft, the Cavs will be happy to build their back court around the draft pick, Darius Garland and Isaac Okoro. Sexton is eligible for an extension this summer and the team isn't ready to hand over the bag.

Last season Sexton averaged 24.3 ppg and 4.4 apg, while shooting 37% from deep. Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated had this to say about Sexton's future with the team:

According to league sources, the Cavaliers have begun to explore trade options involving leading scorer Collin Sexton… There’s belief around the league that Cleveland prefers to move on from Sexton, rather than sign him to a deal that would greatly inhibit their flexibility moving forward. The Cavs hold the No. 3 pick in the draft, and could end up selecting another guard, which could further expedite the process of a trade

The Cavaliers have some big decisions to make as they also need to pay center Jarrett Allen this summer. With a top pick coming and the return of a Sexton trade, the Cavs may get back into the playoff picture in the eastern conference, sooner than later. It helps when everybody gets along.
