Cleveland Cavaliers Koby Altman not planning major roster changes

INDEPENDENCE — Cavaliers President of Basketball Operations Koby Altman faces some difficult offseason decisions, but there may be a sense of loyalty involved, at least when it comes to guard Collin Sexton’s future in Cleveland.

The eighth overall pick in 2018, Sexton played only 11 games in 2021-22 before tearing the meniscus in his left knee on Nov. 7 and undergoing surgery. The Cavs (44-38) posted 37 victories without him, adding to the uncertainty as Sexton enters restricted free agency.

But Altman said in his season-ending press conference that when he arrived at Cleveland Clinic Courts Tuesday, the first person he saw Sexton was working out, four days after the season ended.

The Cavs will have the right to match any offer Sexton receives. Altman is willing to give Sexton credit for being the first draft choice in the post-LeBron James rebuild and suffering through seasons of 19, 19 and 22 victories.
