RUMOR: Collin Sexton’s major role in Caris LeVert’s extension with Cavs, revealed

Collin Sexton, Caris LeVert

There has been a lot of talk surrounding Collin Sexton and Caris LeVert of late as both players face an uncertain future with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs have been biding their time with regard to extension talks involving Sexton and LeVert, and it seems like the team doesn’t really have a considerable sense of urgency in this respect.

As it turns out, however, it appears that LeVert’s future in Cleveland hinges on Collin Sexton. According to Cavs insider Chris Fedor of cleveland.com, there hasn’t been much progress in contract extension talks with LeVert, and this has a lot to do with their current negotiations with Sexton:

Much of Cleveland’s offseason has been intertwined. After finalizing Darius Garland’s massive contract extension, bringing in a pair of point guards (Ricky Rubio and Raul Neto) and adding a burly backup center (Robin Lopez), the Cavs have prioritized the Collin Sexton negotiations. Those remain at a standstill.

The next steps flow from what happens with Sexton. That includes any LeVert extension discussions.

Sexton and LeVert have a lot of similarities in their games, which is why it makes sense that the Cavs are taking a wait-and-see approach here. If they are unable to reach a new deal with Sexton, then the Cavs could begin looking into LeVert’s extension.

It is worth noting, however, that Fedor also reports that certain members of the organization have put more value on LeVert as opposed to Sexton. This could also be the reason why they are in no rush to sign the latter to a new deal.

Be that as it may, it’s also not out of the question that both Sexton and LeVert end up hitting free agency next summer.
