Collin Sexton of the Cleveland Cavaliers has been in the NBA since 2018 but, for many people, he wasn’t a known name until the last couple of seasons.
Take the 2020-21 season, for example, when injuries didn’t sideline him for most of the year: Sexton put up 24.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 4.4 assists.
He was a breakout star on the Cavs and one of the better young guards in the league.
And yet, he has yet to earn an All-Star appearance.
Most career PPG by a player with zero all star selections:

20.0 — Collin Sexton
19.2 — CJ McCollum

In fact, he’s got some impressive stats for someone who has never made an All-Star Game.
Sexton has an average 20.0 points per game, the third-most by a player with zero All-Star appearances.
Ahead of him are John Williamson with 20.1 points per game and Anthony Edwards with 20.3 points per game.
CJ McCollum and De’Aaron Fox also brought in 19.2 and 19.1 points respectively while still missing the All-Star Game.
Is it just a matter of time before Sexton is an All-Star…or playing for another team?
Lately, there has been a lot of speculation about Sexton’s future with the Cavs.
While he was once a vital guard and a super important part of the team, the squad has moved on in some ways since his injury.
In his absence, they have found success and that makes some wonder if there is still a place for him.
If Sexton does end up leaving the Cavaliers, there are plenty of other teams who would be smart and eager to grab hold of this young guard.
With the injury behind him and his potential higher than ever, Sexton could break out even more elsewhere.
Still, Cleveland fans are really intent on holding onto Sexton – if the team finds a way to slot him back into the rotation, the Cavs could get even better.
