In one season in Tuscaloosa, Sexton averaged 19.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.8 assists for the Crimson Tide, whom he led to an appearance in this year's NCAA Tournament. After his Lakers workout, the team signified it had no interest in drafting LiAngelo or signing the 19-year-old to play for their G League team, the South Bay Lakers, according to a report from USA Today Sports. The confident 6-foot-3, 190-pounder is a proven scorer and he addresses a major need for the Cavs, who traded All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to Boston past year.
Cleveland notably drafted Alabama's Collin Sexton in the first round of Thursday's National Basketball Association draft, and Jordan Zirm of ESPN Cleveland noted Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com said James' "people" are fans of the former Crimson Tide guard.
The thing is James doesn't necessarily have to opt out of his deal, as he has a player option for next season with the Cavaliers that would pay him $35.6 million.
With an eye toward rebuilding - and maybe persuading James to re-sign this summer - the Cavs selected Sexton, the lightning-quick Alabama point guard, on Thursday night with the No. 8 overall pick. With the 24th pick of the 2014 draft, they took Napier. If the Cavs trade their pick in a swap for a superstar, like Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs, it may point to what may be going on behind closed doors. 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.

European champions Portugal , however, finished second in their section to set up a clash with Uruguay in the last 16. Tabarez has led Uruguay for 12 years, restoring the small South American nation as a footballing power once again.
LeBron James might be as good as gone.
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. "And what was really encouraging about the workout is he actually shot it a lot better".
All the arrows point to him bolting, but I know for a fact LeBron is trying to figure out if other stars around the league wanna come play with him, but come play with him in Cleveland, first. Carter is better defensively than his Blue Devil partner and could be one of the best defensive players in this entire draft class.
He went on to be named the SEC's top newcomer and a first-team all-conference selection. "The unknown is something that you try to just put out of your hands for a certain amount of time". L.A. was also fined $50,000 in February for Johnson's public comments praising the play of Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. Paul, a long-time friend of James, has reportedly said that James doesn't want to be in Houston and would rather end up in Los Angeles.
