Cleveland Cavaliers’ President of Basketball Operations Koby Altman, spoke on Collin Sexton’s future with the team
The Cleveland Cavaliers‘ season ended with a play-in game loss to the Atlanta Hawks. But now that their season is over, the front office has some decisions to make, and one of those decisions has to do with the future of Collin Sexton. Sexton will be a restricted free agent and the Cavs can match any offer he receives.
President of Basketball Operations, Koby Altman, held an end-of-season press conference, and he stated Sexton deserved to stay in Cleveland.
“He in a lot of ways was the start of not only the rebuild, but the culture that we have in place now,” Altman said of Sexton. “We asked him to do a tall task. Four straight Finals, and now, we’re sort of starting anew. We wanted to have a place that thrived from great attitude, great work ethic, and somebody that really wanted to be in Cleveland, Ohio, and help us get back to those heights. He embodied every part of that, and he still does today.”
Collin Sexton wants to remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers
According to Cleveland.com, Sexton wants to continue his career in Cleveland.
“I want to be here in Cleveland,” Sexton reaffirmed. “I love the organization, love my teammates and whatever happens I know that Cleveland was really good to me. I know this is the place that helped me get to where I am today, and I know I want to continue to be a part of this winning culture. I feel like me just being able to be at the start of it helped us get to yesterday and where we are right now at the present. I love Cleveland. I want to be here.”
During the 2021-22 season, Sexton only played in 11 games due to a meniscus tear in his left knee, but Altman still credits him for being an important part of the team.
Both Sexton and the Cav’s front office seem to be on the same page, now fans will have to wait and see if a deal between the two gets done.
