In the second year of a four-year, $72 million contract, Sexton’s trade price needs to be on the rise. The 6-foot-3 guard helped lead Utah to a 9-4 record in January, averaging 21.4 points on 52.7 percent from the field and 45.3 percent from the three-point line. He was also an effective decision-maker, averaging 5.5 assists. Sexton could double as a sixth man but also play with Brunson in the backcourt.
Sexton has thrived in a starting role and with the great value of his contract, Utah would be looking for a haul for the guard. For both Sexton and Clarkson, Utah is in an interesting position. The Jazz are competing for a playoff spot at 10th in the West, but have a young core that includes 20-year-old point guard Keyonte George and 2022 lottery pick Ochai Agbaji. Regardless, both players would likely require Grimes and draft compensation.
