Cavaliers talks with Colin Sexton at a stalemate

Colin Sexton Received a multi-year contract offer from CavaliersBut Cleveland.com’s Chris Fedor said on The Wine & Gold Talk Podcast, but the two sides are still in limbo that doesn’t seem likely to be resolved soon.

Cleveland’s bid is close to $40 million over three seasons, according to Fedor. While Sexton hoped for more—and reportedly sought to “start custodian money” when the free agency started—the process didn’t go his way. Fedor said potential suitors targeted by Sexton’s representatives “disappeared quickly, especially during the NBA draft.”

Spurs and Pacers are the only two teams that currently have enough room to make Sexton the kind of show he wants without signing and trading, and neither team has shown an inclination to go after him. Fedor states that Sexton needs “something happening around the NBA to change the status quo,” such as a trade involving Kevin DurantAnd the Keri Irving or Donovan Mitchell. Fedor suggests that any of these deals could have a “domino effect” that would cause other teams to become more interested in Sexton.

Fedor adds that the Sexton camp is content to see if the market will change, but the Cavaliers “are not going to bid against themselves” while they wait to see how it goes. The team would like to bring it back but does not want to go to the luxury tax district. Cleveland is currently less than the expected tax line by about $15 million.

If Sexton doesn’t want to commit to a long-term deal that he believes is below its market value, he can accept Cavs’ eligible offer of $7,228,448 and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. He would have been eligible for an $8,559,357 QO, but he didn’t meet the starting criteria because a torn meniscus made him limited to 11 games last season. Sexton has an October 1 deadline to decide on a qualifying bid, although he and the team can agree to submit it at a later date, Fedor Tweets.

Fedor also notes that the uncertainty surrounding Sexton is affecting the Cavaliers’ potential extension talks Karis Levertwho is entering the last season of his current contract. LeVert, which was acquired from the Pacers in a deal in February, becomes more expendable if Sexton is signed to a long-term deal.
