Darius Garland gets brutally honest on Collin Sexton’s future with Cavs
The Cleveland Cavaliers have an important decision to make this NBA offseason after a successful season that saw them finish above .500 for the first time since the 2017-18 season. With an impressive young core of players that includes Darius Garland, Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen, the Cavs have a chance to build a contender for years to come. One of their young stars, Collin Sexton, missed a large chunk of the 2021-22 campaign after suffering a torn meniscus. Sexton, up for a contract extension this offseason after the team failed to extend him last year, is reportedly a priority of the organization’s. In an interview with GQ Sports, Garland spoke about his teammate’s future in Cleveland.
I hope Collin stays around. I really like playing with him. He’s super cool off the court and we have a lot of similarities: we both like shoes and clothes and we love the game of basketball. He was like my big brother coming into the league. So, hopefully, Collin sticks around. Hopefully we get more some more years to play with each other and make some playoff appearances.
