Cavs GM has had "good dialogue" with LeBron

Cavs GM has had

In his only season at Alabama, Sexton led the Crimson Tide back to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2012. It's also worth noting that Hill is slated to make $19 million next year.

The Cavs need a point guard with energy, and the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder will deliver just that.

Cleveland have faced the Golden State Warriors in three of the last four Finals series, yet they have won just one of those match-ups.

Entering the 2018 NBA Draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers must operate without knowing the status of LeBron James, who can opt out of his contract before the end of the month.

It's hard to know what impact - if any - the drafting of Sexton will have on LeBron James as the Cavs star decides where he'll play next season.

Cleveland went into the draft without knowing what their superstar meant to do but pressed ahead and drafted the player they wanted. Almost two weeks before James announced that he would take his talents to South Beach during "The Decision" in 2010, Smith reported that he would team up with Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade on the Miami Heat.

Cavs general manager Koby Altman said the Cavs expected to keep Sexton, rather than include him in a trade this summer, and believed he would be a starting-caliber player from day one.

According to Israeli website Ynet, Mr Elki described it as "regrettable" Britain had chosen to politicise the royal visit. Prince William is now on a royal tour of the Middle East without his wife Kate Middleton , who's on maternity leave.

Cleveland Cavaliers fans will get a glimpse of Collins Sexton in action this July when the NBA Summer League kicks off.

"LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does", Altman said. Perhaps this player offers new options on the trade market, or perhaps this player is actually good enough to contribute, even though Ty Lue doesn't like playing rookies.

"You take Philly out, you take Houston out if they have cap problems; Daryl Morey - we all assume he can swing it, but let's say he can't - and the Lakers out, all of a sudden LeBron looks around and says, 'I might as well stay put'". "I don't ever want to grant somebody that".

"You always want to take young players and mold them to be who you want them to be and take on your personality, and I think he fits it flawless".

The Cavs evidently felt the loss of Kyrie Irving last August and their point guard play was inconsistent all season long.

-Atlanta Hawks general manager Travis Schlenk admitted that his National Basketball Association draft strategy one night earlier was altered by a leaked media report during trade talks, leading to him backing out of a proposed trade with the Milwaukee Bucks. He set the Alabama single-season scoring record for a freshman and was named the SEC Newcomer of the Year and the Co-Freshman of the Year with Kentucky's Kevin Knox.
