Things are getting worse and worse for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As if the start of the season 1: 8, the recent suspension of head coach Ty Lue or the prolonged absence of Kevin Love due to injury would not be enough, there is a new report by Joe Vardon of The athletic proposal The Cavs veterans believe that Collin Sexton, the team's award winning selection from the 2018 draft, "does not know how to play".

The Cavaliers selected Sexton with the eighth overall result in the 2018 draft, with the aim of making it a building block for the future of the franchise after Superstars striker LeBron James retired during the offseason.

In the season, Sexton scored an average of 11.1 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, with 41.3 percent were shot in 23.7 minutes out of the field.

From Vardon:

"In the record commentary, veterans like Tristan Thompson have made it abundantly clear that there is a gap between veterinarians of the Cavs of LeBron's glory years – like him, Smith, Frye, and Korver (Tristan did not mention Love, following a foot operation by the team gone) – and the most unnamed younger players of the team.

It is becoming increasingly clear that when you hear a Cavs veteran speak that younger players do not know their role, or know how to win or what to do on the court, they mean sexton. Throughout the organization, Sexton's line is that he does not know how to play. He does not know how to defend the pick and roll. He does not know how to set up teammates as point guards … They know he's 19 years old and only played college ball for one year. You still think he is a nice kid. But they see his shortcomings, they know that he will be on the pitch, and they are discouraged if he is not disturbed by them after these losses. "

Sexton is only 19 years old and there is still a long way to go before the verdict on him as an NBA player. However, it is clear that dysfunction is currently permeating throughout the Cavs organization, and such a situation will do nothing for its development in the league.
