Will he stay or will he go to another team?
Well, the offseason has been moving along for a few weeks now and we still haven’t heard anything definitive about Sexton’s future.
Hard to find a logical S&T for #Cavs Collin Sexton involving the Mavericks, Jazz, Heat or other “interested” teams. Especially with the base year compensation complications, plus Cavs roster crunch, salary cap situation & desire to avoid tax while keeping space for next summer

Chris Fedor doesn’t see a whole lot of options for Sexton.
He mentioned that there isn’t a logical sign-and-trade deal for Sexton with the Dallas Mavericks, Utah Jazz, Miami Heat, or other “interested” teams.
This is due to a number of factors, including base year compensation and the salary cap but the bottom line is this: the market isn’t really suitable for Sexton right now.
So does that mean he will remain in Cleveland?
If so, what does that mean for him and the team?
Sexton missed most of last year because of injury and rehabilitation that took months.
During that time, the Cavaliers essentially moved on without him.
They did quite well with Sexton on the sidelines and that makes his future with the team questionable, to say the least.
It remains to be seen if the team can find space for Sexton in the upcoming season.
They might not have a choice because the open market isn’t really providing what the Cavaliers want in return.
He’s a talented player (20 points, 3 rebounds, and 3.3 career average) so he shouldn’t be traded away for nothing.
In almost any other situation, the Cavs would make sure to hold onto the young guard.
But since their roster has adjusted to life without him, it makes sense to trade Sexton.
It just doesn’t seem like that’s in the cards right now.
