"We're very, very fortunate to have him here, and what he gave to this franchise was nothing short of remarkable".

In fairness, no one available at No. 8 would've dazzled James and sent him scrambling to commit long term in Cleveland.

Per WKYC's Ben Axelrod, Cavs general manager Koby Altman outlined the team's new philosophy toward roster building.

The Cavs drafting Sexton on Thursday won't likely have much impact on James' free agency. The Cavaliers have talked to San Antonio about a possible trade just recently.

Speculation persists as to where James will land next, with a week remaining until the legendary forward must inform the Cavs of his decision to either stay in Cleveland or opt out of the final year of his deal, becoming a free agent.

After Kyrie Irving was sent to the Boston Celtics last summer, Love's role offensively increased drastically. After the Cavs won the championship in 2016, James signed a two-year contract with an option for this season.

He made the most of his opportunity.

The Cavs can offer him a five-year, $209 million deal this time. He did all that while nursing a broken bone in his left hand that he suffered at the end of January. He played in all of the Cavs' 104 games, regular season and post, and averaged 34 points in the playoffs.

Sexton is a dynamic guard who averaged 19.3 points per game in college and has a bright future in the National Basketball Association.

"When you have LeBron, you don't have time for the draft. But, just go out there and lose yourself in it and everything will fall where it needs to". "LeBron is actively searching and recruiting players to Cleveland, even more so than he did after he came back with Kevin Love".

Rumors of LeBron heading to LA have been on the front burner for the past year, however, they're by no means a lock to land the four-time MVP. But I like to be here.

"I do [think he is a starter]", Altman said. "Always wanted to win here". Mostly, he looked like a 19-year-old whose life has been moving extremely fast over the past few weeks. The pick could be used in a trade package, or could be used to draft somebody. Will said player ever actually suit up in the wine and gold?

Cleveland Cavaliers fans and the rest of the sports world are now waiting to find out what the Cavs can pull off in the offseason, and what the draft will bring on Thursday.

Unless, they can get other superstars to join the squad. The Rockets may also be right there if they keep Paul.
