League executives think Collin Sexton doesn’t affect LeBron James’ decision

LeBron James lost in the NBA Finals this year against the Golden State Warriors

Following a break from the National Basketball Association which lasted less than two weeks, the league's focus turns to the teams that were the furthest away from capturing a title this past season.

The Cavs managed to get to the Finals for the fourth straight time, but they didn't have almost enough firepower to hang with the Golden State Warriors, who swept them and won their third title in four years.

Cleveland struggled to surround James with the right pieces as rumors of his departure mounted.

Sexton's arrival completes last summer's Kyrie Irving trade with Boston.

Cleveland has inquired about the availability of San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard, but the franchise does not believe it has the realistic assets to convince the Spurs to deal the former NBA Finals MVP, considering what other teams on the market can offer. "I think I've shown this year why I will still continue to be in championship mode". As a result, the Cavs have one of the oldest teams in the league. The pick could be used in a trade package, or could be used to draft somebody.

LeBron James wanting to play off the ball could also be a sign that he wants to save some gas to extend his career as long as possible. He succeeded in getting to his eighth straight Finals, but was then overmatched by the deeper Warriors.

According to Bleacher Report what the Cavs did during the draft wasn't done with James free agency decision in mind.

No Plans to Support VR on Xbox Consoles
Now, though, hopes that Xbox One owners may get to play around with VR, AR, or MR have been dashed. It would achieve that, the company hinted, by supporting virtual reality headsets on the Xbox .

The 6-foot-2, 183-pound guard has athleticism to burn.

Sexton has been on Cleveland's radar for some time.

Sexton had a solid floor game with 3.8 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.

Sexton worked out for the Cavs at their training facility and owner Dan Gilbert referred to the 19-year-old as "a very interesting draft prospect" on Twitter.

The trade does bring back shades of the Miami Heat when they drafted point guard Shabazz Napier back in the 2014 NBA Draft, but this one feels a bit different. If he opts out, he would become an unrestricted free agent.

He's been quiet, but there's no doubt he's watching.
