Pels/Cavs discuss Collin Sexton trade
LINK

quote:

Pelicans, Cavs discussed a deal that would send Collin Sexton to New Orleans, per league source

Talks have been preliminary thus far, but that's likely to change as we get closer to the 2021 NBA Draft.


Don't know who Landon Buford is, but

Thread title should be “Guy with 5000 Twitter followers says Pels/Cavs discuss Collin Sexton trade.”

Collin Sexton is a trash player who hogs the ball. Kevin Love hates that guy.

He’s claimed Pels related inside info before. He said Beal had the Pels on his list of teams before the Wizards turned the season around.

He also said Willie Green is the leading candidate and Lee isn’t.

Not sure what his connection would be.

Sexton traded, would mean Love stays away from here.

Lewis + Bledsoe
2021: 10th overall, 2 2nd rounds
2022: Lakers or Pelicans pick (top 4 protected)

re: Pels/Cavs discuss Collin Sexton trade
I hope the Pels can pull this one off. Would solve a lot of problems and raise our ceiling significantly. Sexton is a hell of a player and he’s only 22. Kira might have a 2% chance of ever having a season as good as Sexton just had at age 22.

Core of Sexton, NAW, Ingram, Zion, Hayes would be nasty and unguardable. Mix in some role players that defend and hit spot up 3’s and that’s a potential championship team.

Kevin Love fricking sucks. Who cares what he thinks of the guy? Also, do your homework, I know the play you are thinking of. He was pissed at the 80 year old college coach calling a set play instead of letting Love attack the mismatch against a guard in the post.

I’m convinced half our fanbase just wants us to suck forever.

Kira, 10, 2 future firsts for Sexton and Prince or Nance

Still leaves us with 8 firsts over the next 6 years and we would have the best young big 3 in the entire league.

Do whatever it takes Griff. Please don’t get hung up over an extra first in a deal like this for a player of this caliber.

You have to overpay for elite talent in this league. Yall seem to want to offer some bull shite trade package for Sexton, but if you do that, technically even a team like the Lakers could match it. Kira and 1 first ain’t getting this done.

Looks like the guy does a lot of freelance work for a variety of places like Forbes and SI but he has 5000 followers. Doubt he has legit high level sources. At best he is hearing chatter that others around the league are hearing, unsourced.

Anyway, I’d give Sexton a chance but the problem is he had a ball hog perception and he’s going to need to get paid after 1 year basically.

I wouldn’t give up any young player for him like Kira, NAW, or Hayes. Maybe a Hart or Lonzo S&T somewhere else, some of those assets received plus 10 and Bledsoe for salary.

Darius Garland hogs more the ball than Sexton at this point...

At least Sexton is a two-way player, is easily a top 5 SG and a very good mentality...

Kevin Love wanted to play to Portland, hates Sexton for no valid reason (at Basketball) and doesn't play defense.

re: Pels/Cavs discuss Collin Sexton trade
I don’t even have a twitter and I used to get Hornets/Pels info from Dell Demps at AAU basketball games. He was a very nice guy that just loved to talk basketball and potential trade scenarios. So I know first hand that people with not a lot of twitter followers and/or no obvious link to the franchise do sometimes get some intel.

Remember, we had 2 random arse posters break big Zion injury news before it was made public.

Can quality rumors come from unexpected sources with no credible past history of breaking news? Sure.

Should we be assuming that will be the case every time and treat it with credibility when the vast, vast, overwhelming majority of random Twitter “insiders” turn out wrong? imo no.

re: Pels/Cavs discuss Collin Sexton trade
Sexton couldn’t stop a traffic cone from scoring on him.

At least Love is still a beast on the boards when he wants to be.

Better argument would be that Curry and Young sort of prove that you can be a net negative defender as a guard as long as you put in just enough effort and have the right complimentary pieces.

Biggest issue with someone like Sexton here is that we would be a turnstile on defense with Sexton/Zion/Ingram. That and he’s gaining a bad reputation as a ball hog and not a team player. Difficult to square that if your best offense will mean Zion and BI have the ball in their hands 50% or more of the time.
