“There are several people within the organization who, given the choice between Caris LeVert and Collin Sexton, would take Caris over Collin due to height, because of the length, because of the versatility he can bring on the defensive side of the floor,” Chris Fedor said on the Zach Lowe Podcast. “And they liked what they saw with Caris and Darius together. Obviously the numbers back that up.
What’s the buzz on Twitter?
Collin Sexton has become the forgotten man of free will. I think he’s definitely better than what the NBA looks like right now.
On the reasons for Sexton’s limited market, why I would be more willing to pay him and which team I think should and will.

More on this scenario
Hey, Chris: Is there a pull on a Caris LeVert extension? — Anthony, Stow Hey, Anthony: Not really. Much of Cleveland’s offseason has been intertwined. After finalizing Darius Garland’s massive contract extension, bringing in a pair of point guards (Ricky Rubio and Raul Neto) and adding a beefy backup center (Robin Lopez), the Cavs prioritized Collin Sexton negotiations. These remain stationary. -Going through Cleveland Plain Dealership / July 29, 2022
The next steps stem from what’s happening with Sexton. This includes all discussions of the LeVert extension. Both play the same position. They have similar skills. LeVert was acquired at the deadline as a short-term injury replacement, providing some play in Rubio’s absence and bringing that aggressive, aggressive score the team missed due to the meniscus tear of end of Sexton’s season. Still, due to LeVert’s age and contract situation, he was also thought to be long-term play if he looked like a quality fit alongside Cleveland’s nascent core. The Cavs haven’t really had a chance to be rated in their own right. -Going through Cleveland Plain Dealership / July 29, 2022 Another potential Pacers move is a sign and trade Ricky Rubio back to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Windhorst said. The Pacers traded Caris LeVert to the Cavs last season, and Rubio — who was out for the season with an injury — and his expiring contract came to the Pacers. Then came Turner’s speech. “He could be traded in a sign and trade in Phoenix, or, I’ve been told, he could go somewhere else,” Windhorst said.. -Going through Indianapolis Star / July 8, 2022 Collin Sexton is in the midst of the toughest free agency status – restricted free agency – but fourth-year guard and his representation, Klutch Sports CEO Rich Paul, has shown so far that they won’t settle negotiations. Talks could go into training camp, and potentially into the season when the league roster landscape changes. -Going through Athleticism / July 25, 2022
