Cavs select Bama's Sexton to help convince LeBron to stay

Cleveland Cavaliers Interested In Trading For Kemba Walker

In 33 appearances with the Crimson Tide last season, the former SEC Freshman of the Year turned in averages of 19.2 points on 44.7 percent shooting from the field (33.6 percent from beyond the arc), 3.8 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in 29.9 minutes per. He's confident, a proven scorer and he addresses a major need for the Cavs, who traded All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to Boston previous year and spent all season trying to replace him.

The pick comes two years and two days after Irving hit the biggest shot in franchise history with a go-ahead 3-pointer in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals, assuring the Cavs their first championship.

Altman entered the National Basketball Association draft Thursday without knowledge of James' intentions in free agency.

LeBron James may have one foot out of the door, but Cleveland Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton is not about to let the man go. The last Alabama player to be selected in the draft was forward Richard Hendrix, who was picked No. 49 overall by the Golden State Warriors 10 years ago. If the Cavs trade their pick in a swap for a superstar, like Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs, it may point to what may be going on behind closed doors.

The Cavs' front office led by Altman entered the draft in the dark on James' plans.

Uruguay , meanwhile, had not conceded a goal in 2018 - an impressive run of six games, three of them at Russian Federation 2018. In the 22nd minute, Suarez almost added his name to the scoresheet when he was brought down by Jose Fonte from around 25-yards.

But recent murmurs have suggested that James could stay with his home state team after all, Cavs general manager Koby Altman indicating that they have had positive talks with representatives of the four-time MVP.

Cleveland Cavaliers fans will get a glimpse of Collins Sexton in action this July when the NBA Summer League kicks off.

"I've been told that the only thing that'll keep LeBron James in Cleveland is if his lovely wife, Savannah, and those three attractive children of his say, 'Daddy ..." Perhaps this player offers new options on the trade market, or perhaps this player is actually good enough to contribute, even though Ty Lue doesn't like playing rookies.

"That's probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don't take him for granted". Bleacher Report's Ken Berger spoke with executives around the league and asked if the Sexton selection would matter to King James. Will that player's rights be traded on Draft night? I think Kentucky guys, you kind of want to see them away from that setting at times. Teammate Marvin Bagley III will likely go inside of the top-three picks tonight, but Carter could have an immediate impact on whoever drafts him as well.

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.
