Cleveland Cavaliers extend qualifying offer to Collin Sexton
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - In a move that was no surprise, the Cavs extended a qualifying offer to guard Collin Sexton Tuesday worth $7.2 million.
The move keeps Sexton’s rights for Cleveland, otherwise he could have become an unrestricted free agent.
Sexton now is a Restricted Free Agent, meaning the Cavs can match any offer he gets.
Sexton, the No. 8 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft from Alabama, was limited to 11 games due to a knee injury during the 2021-22 season.
Sexton averaged 20 points, 3.3 assists, and 3 rebounds while shooting 45.8 percent during his first four years in Cleveland.
He averaged a career-high 24.3 points per game in 2020-21 but then lost his point guard job to Darius Garland.
