There are a lot of questions to answer this offseason in Cleveland – including “Does anyone want to take Kevin Love off our hands?” – but near the top of the list is this:
How much do they like the Darius Garland and Collin Sexton backcourt? Or, more accurately, how much are they willing to pay to keep that backcourt together? Sexton is extension eligible this offseason.
An NBA executive suggested the Cavs could consider because it’s a salary cap crusher to pay Allen and Sexton both long-term contracts over $100 million. Around the league, Sexton is seen as a good scorer but not the franchise cornerstone kind of player Fox is for Sacramento.
This feels more like a situation that gets kicked down the road a season until Sexton is a restricted free agent and the market sets his value.
