Cleveland Cavaliers have changed the narrative around Collin Sexton, after his breakout season last year. The Cavs’ general Manager envisions Sexton as a part of the long-term plan of the franchise.

In a recent interview on SiriusXM NBA Radio, Koby Altman praised Sexton for his loyalty to the franchise and his ability to improve year after year.

Last season, before the trade deadline, several rumors suggested Cleveland could trade Sexton, as the franchise wouldn’t want to offer him a big rookie scale extension.

The narrative changed during last year, where Sexton became an efficient scoring dynamo, averaging a career-high 24.3 points on 47 percent shooting from the field. He also shot a respectable 37 percent from the three-point range.

Sexton could not be the franchise player for the Cavs; however, he has all the tools to become the best no.2 in a legit playoff team.

Sexton is eligible for a contract extension this offseason, and it remains unclear if Cleveland can keep him and build around him, Evan Mobley, and Darius Garland.
