Does Collin Sexton fit the Detroit Pistons?
On paper I am not sure Sexton is a great fit when you consider that his skills somewhat overlap with Jaden Ivey’s.
But if you look at the Pistons’ depth chart, two-guard is not that deep behind Ivey, especially when you consider Burks will probably play some at the small forward.
Sexton could definitely be a weapon off the bench for the Pistons that they currently lack and would fit right into the second unit as a two-guard off the ball or even occasionally as the lead guard creating the offense.
He doesn’t have the size the Pistons are looking for, but he does offer high-volume 3-point shooting and could be a part of crunch-time lineups when the Pistons need a bucket.
Sexton is likely going to have to play more off the ball whether he stays in Cleveland or not, as they already have Darius Garland, so the idea of being a sixth man who is given the green light to shoot away might be appealing to Sexton.
He’s definitely not a perfect fit, but he would give the Pistons something they need and would fit their recent strategy of taking small risks on high-ceiling guys who could end up being bargain contributors.
Detroit has been quiet this offseason after a flurry of early moves but the Sexton situation will be one to monitor.
