Apart from sure-fire lottery picks, earning playing time as a rookie isn’t an easy task for a player drafted so late. But for Jones, he had his spot on the starting roster all but guaranteed after just a few summer league practices.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are the first team to extend a formal contract offer to former University of Alabama star and current free agent Collin Sexton. Sexton has been listed by many analysts as the top remaining free agent available for teams to sign after the initial boom of free agency before NBA Summer League action began.
The 32-year old will replace Otto Porter and Gary Payton Jr. at a considerable discount, allowing the Warriors to keep its core of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green together for another championship run.
The NBA free agency period has been nothing short of entertaining this offseason as teams sign players to new deals with some of them being warranted and others unprecedented, but no free agent remains as unclear of his final destination than Collin Sexton.
