Alabama basketball fans remember the name Collin Sexton very well. The former Crimson Tide star started in nearly every game in his only year at the Capstone and averaged 19.2 PPG and shot 44% from the field.

Sexton helped lead the Tide to a 20-16 record during the 2017-2018 season and even helped Alabama enter the AP Poll during the season, reaching No. 24.

Word has gotten out that the Cleveland Cavaliers have failed to reach an agreement with Sexton, meaning that he will become a restricted free-agent following the conclusion of the 2021-2022 season.

Since being drafted by the Cavs at No. 8 in the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft, Sexton has averaged 20.2 PPG.

Sexton would make a fine addition to any roster in the NBA after his contract expires, but being a restricted free-agent means that the Cavs have the right to retain him by matching the terms of any offer sheet Sexton chooses to sign with another team.

If Cleveland declines to match the terms, Sexton is free to go wherever his heart desires.
