"LeBron, let's do it. Let's do it," Sexton said on ESPN after being drafted. "I see you need a few pieces, that one extra piece this past season. Let's do it. Let's get back to the [NBA] Finals."
James has an opportunity to become a free agent this season if he declines his $35.6 million option for 2018-19.
He led the Cavs to the NBA Finals the last four years, winning one title, but the team could struggle mightily without him if he decides to leave.
While Sexton does like to shoot—he averaged 19.2 points per game during his lone season at Alabama—he would clearly prefer being on a contender alongside James.
