There’s no secret that the Cavaliers got worse at the point guard position when the team traded Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics to get the Brooklyn pick.
George Hill has had some nice moments since joining the squad before the NBA trade deadline, but that doesn’t mean the organization should shy away from upgrading the position.
Sexton’s like Kyrie in that he can can he’s devastating off the dribble and excels at creating his own shot. Unlike Kyrie though, Sexton plays defense.
The 19-year-old was expected to carry the offense at Alabama, as he averaged 19.3 points per game while averaging 3.6 assists per contest.
That’s not necessarily a surprise at Alabama, because the football school usually doesn’t get a basketball talent with Sexton’s ability. He was the Tide’s best player, therefore Alabama needed him to score.
Sexton shot 44 percent from the field in college, and a lousy 34 percent from 3-point range, a number that must improve in the NBA.
Cavs fans just saw James single handily save the Cavaliers during the first round of the NBA playoffs against the Pacers. The serious was difficult to watch because besides James, the team had no other scoring threat it could count on for a basket.
Sexton would bring that element back to the Cavaliers.
