RUMOR: Cavs’ true feelings on Collin Sexton’s contract extension, revealed
One of the biggest decisions the Cavs need to make this offseason involves the contract of Collin Sexton. The 23-year-old is entering free agency this summer and unless Cleveland is able to secure him to a new deal, Sexton could very well walk away and leave the team with nothing to show for.
