However, opposing stars believe the University of Alabama product would be better suited in a bench role.
They need to put the ball in Garland’s hands, find a traditional shooting guard with size and bring Sexton off bench in a Lou Williams role. Every opposing star I’ve talked to agrees. https://t.co/eGedMQn2mL

Sexton, 22, has been a full-time starter for the last two years.
The three-year pro is having his best career campaign this season. He’s putting up a career-high 24.4 points, 4.1 assists and 1.1 steals per game this season.
Yet, it hasn’t been enough to propel the Cavs to playoff contention. The team holds an abysmal 21-43 record this year.
The Cavs take on the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
