Cavaliers: a small offer for Collin Sexton?

Three weeks after the start of free agency, Collin Sexton still hasn’t signed a contract extension with Cleveland, and no team has offered him a ” offer sheet“. Like Deandre Ayton before him, Sexton is being forced to wait, but according to Plain Dealer’s Chris Fedor, the Cavaliers have already made him an offer. It would be very low: around 40 million over three years. We understand why Sexton did not accept it, and why his camp prefers to wait.

After a shortened season (11 matches) due to a tear in the meniscus of the left knee, Collin Sexton saw his rating drop sharply, both because of this injury, but also because Darius Garland burst the screen. The Cavaliers have their hands on his future since he is a protected free agent, but the club does not make it a priority since JB Bickerstaff’s men have just won 44 matches without him. They have already found a replacement for him: Caris LeVert, who arrived from the Pacers in February.

There’s nothing stopping Sexton from staying at the Cavaliers since management protected him with a ” qualifying offer at $7.3 million. If he accepts it, he will be an unprotected free agent in a year.

Offer sheet : a free agent protected by his franchise has the option of accepting an outside proposal. This is called an “offer sheet”. His franchise then has 48 hours to align, and thus keep it. This season, Deandre Ayton had signed an “offer sheet” from the Pacers and Phoenix lined up to keep him.

Qualifying offer : proposal made by a franchise to one of its players during his last year of rookie contract. Based on his former salary, this offer allows him to become a “protected free agent” and to match any offer made to the player by another franchise. If the player then signs this qualifying offer, he is automatically free next season, and his team will no longer be able to match an offer to keep him.
