Cavaliers guard Collin Sexton made another step forward this past season, leading the team in scoring at 24.3 points and continuing to show promise for the future.
A change in coaches may have played a role, and Sexton and the Cavs hope to have some stability in that department now. In three seasons, Sexton has played for everyone from Tyronn Lue and Larry Drew, to John Beilein, and now, J.B. Bickerstaff.
In a wide-ranging interview with Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports, Sexton said the change from Beilein to Bickerstaff has been extremely noticeable.
“Coach Beilein wanted everything to be the fundamentals of the game, but Bickerstaff has pretty much has just allowed us to be who we are,” Sexton said. “They’re both pretty good, and J.B. is really good for us right now. Beilein was good for us when he was with us. So can’t complain.”
