The Cleveland Cavaliers are in for a busy NBA offseason as they try to pick up the pieces and get things together. One part of that has already been addressed with the hiring of now-former college coach John Beilein, something that quietly made sports headlines recently.

As mentioned in a previous post, team owner Dan Gilbert was pretty impressed with Beilein and he believes that the 65-year-old who used to coach the Michigan Wolverines is the right guy for the job, calling him a brilliant basketball mind that can resurrect the slumping Cavaliers. And while little has been said in the wires, Collin Sexton seems upbeat and ready to work with the new Cavs head coach.

Sexton is currently in the Philippines alongside WNBA Legend Ticha Penicheiro to join Jr. NBA Philippines 2019 in cooperation with Alaska. He was made available to local media on Wednesday where he was thrown different questions ranging from his rookie year performance to the recent NBA Draft Lottery 2019. 

Sexton was immediately asked on his thoughts of Beilein who was named head coach of the Cavaliers only yesterday. The 20-year-old guard said that he had already talked with Beilein and Sexton cannot wait to work with the new mentor as Cleveland tries to achieve its goals for the 2019-20 NBA season. 

"Before coming over to the Philippines, I got the first time to talk to him before the lottery. I got to have a conversation with him and he is a great guy and I can't wait for him to coach us and see what happens next year. We have some pretty high goals like making the playoffs so I can't wait," said Sexton. 

One thing worth remembering about Sexton was his late bloom in the 2018-19 NBA season. After starting out slow, the product out of the University of Alabama picked up the pace and showed what he is truly capable of. He attributes most of that to patience and perseverance. 

"The first part of the season, it was pretty tough. Our coach got fired, I was coming off the bench. I was adjusting. So I was trying to adjust, getting used to the NBA - coming in, it was pretty tough at first. But then once I picked it up, I was pretty good," said Sexton. 

Sexton stressed the importance of adjustment and patience when entering the NBA. With Beilein onboard, only time will tell if the Cavs can rebound from a woeful season. 

"Just take your time. Things don't happen right away so you just have to progress a bit each and every day," he concluded.
