3. PG Collin Sexton, Utah Jazz

Sexton is a weird player to value properly. While his days in Cleveland showed that he could be a 24-point-per-game scorer, those numbers were inflated by a high volume of shots on a bad team. Since his injuries trade to Utah, Sexton's numbers have fallen off.

Sexton has played in just 76 games (26 starts) since 2021, averaging 14.0 points on 48/35/82 shooting splits. The Jazz appear to be ready to move off the former top draft pick, as a young backup plan in first-round pick Keyonte George is already getting more responsibility.

The Toronto Raptors may target Collin Sexton.

Even though the gaudy numbers from his Cleveland days aren't showing up, getting a player who can produce like Sexton off the bench would give the Raptors so much extra confidence. Sexton can run the bench units better than Flynn while remaining an ascending young player who will turn 25 in January.

Sexton is at a fork in the road in his proverbial career. He can become a role player for a team that wants to go deep into the playoffs or sign for an also-ran and become a high-volume, largely inconsequential scorer. Toronto might be able to help him achieve the former with enough aggressiveness by Ujiri.
