NBA Rumors: The Market For Cavaliers' RFA Collin Sexton

Cleveland Cavaliers' 4th-year combo guard Collin Sexton missed all but 11 games this past season due to a torn meniscus. But after averaging 20 points a game in his first three-plus seasons, teams are very aware that the restricted free agent can fill it up. 

According to HoopsHype's Michael Scotto and Cavaliers beat writer Chris Fedor, Sexton will be looking for a contract north of $20M per year this offseason, while the Cavs "are more comfortable in the range of $15-18 million (annually)... I do think there’s a gap they need to close this offseason," said Fedor. 

Scotto sees the Washington Wizards and New York Knicks as teams that could take a swing at offering Sexton a contract, as both are in need of a lead guard. The Detroit Pistons are another team that the Cavs are "wondering about", as they're looking for a backcourt scorer to take some load off Cade Cunningham.

Fedor's sources, however, tell him that "the Cavs do not believe there is a team out there that is going to give Collin a contract north of $20 million annually." That could mean the Cavs re-sign him, only to flip him in a trade later.
