I actually think Garlands presence and ability to also handle the ball and hopefully create Collin quality looks while taking pressure off of him could end up being huge positives for Collin. Offensively at least.I honestly expected Sexton to have a huge 2nd year, but with Garland it becomes quite dicey.
To me, Sexton's 2nd year is of much greater importance than Garland's rookie season. For that reason, I believe we need to put the ball in Sexton's hands even if the end goal is to have it in Garland's hands more. I don't believe it is wise to take Sexton's freedom this season if we want to maximize his 2nd year growth. Although there are downsides to it if it's not in our future plan to have him as a lead guard.
I believe in Garland's talent, but no matter how you slice it, its going to be difficult and we need to be extra careful to not damage their growth and Sexton's in particular.
