NBA Rumors: Thunder Still Eyeing Collin Sexton?

Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton drives to the basket vs. the Hornets.

There were rumblings of the Thunder’s interest in Collin Sexton over the summer and those have resurfaced in the wake of the guard not coming to an extension with Cavaliers.

According to Cavs’ reporter Evan Dammarell, OKC sees potential in a Sexton-SGA pairing.

There aren’t many teams out there who have the salary cap space that makes sense for Sexton other than the Detroit Pistons, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the New Orleans Pelicans that could outbid Cleveland in free agency. Of those aforementioned teams, the Thunder could be a legitimate threat since, according to sources, Oklahoma City is intrigued by the pairing of Sexton alongside budding superstar Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and their bevy of youngsters.

Details on Sexton’s Negotiations With Cleveland

Sexton was reportedly hoping to net a three-year deal, worth north of $100 million that would match up with his production early on in his career.

Multiple structures were discussed (including different lengths, incentives, unique clauses, and bonuses), however, Sexton and the Cavs couldn’t come to terms on an agreement.

Sexton has improved his averages all across the board ever since entering the league and the Cavaliers have continuously referred to him as a core piece of their future.
