Almost one week before LeBron James must inform the Cleveland Cavaliers whether he intends to pick up the option on his contract with the Cavs for next season, Cleveland general manager Koby Altman said he and James' camp have already established a "good dialogue".
Sexton, 19, averaged 19.2 points and 3.6 assists as a freshman for the Crimson Tide. The 19-year-old also carried them to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2012.
The Cavs need a point guard with energy, and the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder will deliver just that.
James has until June 29 to exercise the $35.6 million player option on his contract for next season.
On Thursday, the Cavs had the 8th overall draft pick, choosing Collin Sexton, one of the most dynamic guards in the country. When guys start playing pick-up games, they'll be in that mix, if they continue on the path they're on, but there's no indication they wouldn't.

The game has limped on after such a rapid start, but neither of these sides have done enough to hit the front just yet. It wouldn't have done if not for Kasper Schmeichel .

Russia's Oleg Slanko holds the record for most individual goals in a single match, netting five goals against Cameroon in 1994. North America will host the six-team playoff tournament in November 2025 to decide the last two places in the 48-team lineup.
The Cavs had sent strong signals ahead of the draft they wanted to upgrade the roster with veterans, and they still can with some trade chips and their salary cap exception (which Altman said Friday he intends to use). It is clear that LeBron James has expressed his interest to move out of OH for the second time in eight years, but can the Cavs do enough on draft night to convince the 15-year veteran to stay?
Cavs general manager Koby Altman continues to make the roster younger.
Although Shaquille O'Neal has publicly said that LeBron doesn't need more championships to prove his status as the best in the world, it still comes to "King" James and his decision as he has made it plenty clear that he's chasing Michael Jordan's record of winning the National Basketball Association championship 6 times. As a result, the Cavs have one of the oldest teams in the league. But if I was him, I wouldn't be trying to get four, five and six because it ain't going to matter.
The good news is Sexton is a 78 percent shooter from the foul line, meaning he has decent form and release on his shot.
Some say we should draft a point guard for Lebron to groom if he stays. This report comes a week after the Akron Beacon Journal's Marla Ridenour told ESPN that she heard James say earlier this past season that he "does not like Houston as a city". I think Kentucky guys, you kind of want to see them away from that setting at times.
And no other major player appears to have come close to shifting sales in recent years, as TickPick also analyzed year-to-year increases or drop-offs for teams that added or lost the following players: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Dwyane Wade and Gordon Hayward.
