Collin Sexton has enjoyed putting up some monster offensive numbers for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but now, new rumors have circulated about his future Cleveland.
According to Cavaliers reporter Evan Dammarell, the Oklahoma City Thunder organization have said that the team is “intrigued” by the possibility of a backcourt featuring Sexton and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
Negotiations for an extension reportedly fell through with Sexton and the Cavs, but Sexton has shown to be an exciting young guard in the League.
In just three seasons, plus one game this year, Sexton has accumulated a career average of 20.2 points and 3.4 assists per game while knocking down 38.5 percent of his career three-pointers. Sexton picked up where he left off to start this season, dropping 17 points in the Cavs season-opening loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Pairing Sexton alongside Gilgeous-Alexander is an intriguing combo. Gilgeous-Alexander’s ability to attack the basket and create shots for his teammates could open up Sexton for more opportunities to do what he does best, shoot.
