For months now, people have wondered about what is next for Sexton and the Cavs.
He missed most of last season due to injury and during his absence the team became very strong without him.
So many have speculated that he could be sent away in a hefty trade package.
Remaining NBA restricted free agents:
M. Bridges – CHA
N. De Colo – TOR
D. Duke Jr. (Two-Way) – BKN
M. Hill (Two-Way)- CHI
D. Johnson (Two-Way) – TOR
N. Mannion (Two-Way) – GSW
J. Nwora – MIL
C. Sexton – CLE
B. Thomas (Two-Way) – BOS
J. Wieskamp – SAS

Sure enough, Sexton is still one of the remaining NBA restricted free agents waiting to find out what’s happening to him next season.
Of all the restricted free agents still on the market, Sexton is easily the most valuable one.
But will all of this just lead to him remaining in Cleveland?
Sexton is easily the type of player that most teams would want to build around.
Cleveland knows they have someone special with this young star and that’s why they haven’t moved him.
They are trying to decide if they want to try to keep him for cheap (they’re a little strapped for cash) or send him away.
But they don’t want to let him go for nothing: the team wants something good for Sexton.
Since he is a restricted free agent, it means that the Cavaliers are in charge here and are able to match any offer that comes Sexton’s way.
So far, it doesn’t seem like many teams are knocking down Cleveland’s door.
That means that Sexton may very well return to the Cavaliers next year in hopes to prove to everyone just how much of a superstar he really is.
