The Cleveland Cavaliers are not exactly a good team at the moment, but they have some intriguing players that could be a key part of their future. Collin Sexton is one of those players: this season, he is averaging 24.4 PPG, 3.1 RPG, and 4.1 APG. Those statistics are great for a third-year player, and when you compare his numbers to his last two seasons, it is clear that he has improved.

Collin Sexton is one of the key players for the Cleveland Cavaliers' future, and it seems pretty clear that he gets the highest usage rate out of all current Cavaliers players (29.2%). While Collin Sexton may deserve the usage rate due to his scoring output, Joe Vardon has reported that some Cavaliers players are frustrated with Collin Sexton dominating the ball and has even claimed that opponents taunt them by saying that "you know" that Sexton won't pass the ball.

Various Cavs players still grow frustrated by the way Sexton dominates the ball, and opponents taunt them by saying during games, “you know he’s not going to pass you the ball.”

While Sexton is clearly a capable scorer, playmaking is definitely a facet of his game that he could work on. No one wins by dominating the ball all the time, not even Michael Jordan. Everyone needs their teammates' help if they are to get better and affect winning. The Cleveland Cavaliers potentially have a bright future, and everything, including Sexton's passing, will hopefully come with more development time.
