Sexton scored 27 points (9-22 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-10 FT) while adding three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes during Monday's 112-109 double overtime loss to the Lakers in the summer league semi-final. The eighth overall pick in this year's draft was an offensive machine in Vegas, showing a consistent ability to get to the free-throw line. With the Cavs now facing a rebuild following LeBron James' departure, expect Sexton to get all the court time he can handle in his first NBA campaign.
Sexton pitched in 18 points (6-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds across 27 minutes during the Cavaliers' 82-68 win over the Raptors in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday. The first-round pick was instrumental in the Cavaliers advancing, putting together yet another strong all-around performance. Sexton's scoring total checked in second only to John Holland's on the team, and he figures to play a pivotal role once again in Monday's semifinal-round matchup against the Lakers.

The 2018 first-round pick has provided plenty of reason for optimism in the desert, averaging 18.4 points (on 43.0 percent shooting), 3.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists across 28.2 minutes over five games. The robust run and usage he's seen is a harbinger of what he can likely expect in the regular season, when he's slated to play a prominent role from the opening game.
Sexton recorded 25 points (9-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and one steal across 25 minutes during Wednesday's 96-84 summer league victory over the Kings. After some early struggles, Sexton has strung together two good games in a row, totaling 46 points and 11 assists. The eighth overall pick in this year's draft, Sexton will presumably play a significant role within the team's offense, especially if a rebuilding effort is on the way.

Sexton posted a summer league-high scoring total while also enjoying his best game as a facilitator, making it a memorable performance overall. The 2018 first-round pick could see significant opportunity as the coming season unfolds, considering the Cavaliers are likely to give their young players plenty of run in what is expected to be a non-contending campaign.
