Collin Sexton hoped for a $100 million contract extension with Cavs



Chris Fedor: Multiple sources tell @clevelanddotcom that #Cavs Collin Sexton’s side initially hoped for a contract in the $100M range. But they were never stuck on that number. They were open & willing to finalize a lesser deal. Now it’s time to move forward. Together

#Cavs Collin Sexton after practice today putting up shots.
J.B. Bickerstaff said Sexton was the same at practice after there was no agreement on a contract extension.
“He was doing all the things that we asked him to do, that he’s always done […] He’s going to be him.” PM

I get the sense that #Cavs and Collin Sexton were definitely apart in their contract talks, but not with the annual numbers that many seem to be speculating about. Will have more on tomorrow’s Wine and Gold Talk Podcast! – 12:07 AM

Rick Noland @RickNoland
Totally OK with not signing Sexton to an extension, especially with Garland coming up next year and Mobley two years after that. Want him with the team, but not at $25-27M per year – 12:00 AM
