This article states how good sexton was with delly playing alongside him. Surely they keep giving him minutes alongside sexton next season.
Great find on that column. Now I'm excited to see what Sexton can do playing next to an improved Darius Garland, who is also a pass-first point guard. They're also considering using Porter as the initiator.

Sexton was getting really easy buckets just running off screens away from the ball. His first season he was a ball dominant point guard. Last year he transitioned to shooting guard, playing there 77% of the time according to the column. This year it should be 100% and he'll just build on what he was doing the last five games of the season where he averaged 30.0 shooting 58.3% playing off the ball.

The problem with playing Garland and Sexton together is not on the offensive end.

Delly is big enough to guard opposing SG's, which leaves Sexton to guard PG's. That doesn't apply when you play Garland and Sexton together, though.

Delly was crushing right before the shutdown. He also finally got healthy. I still hope Sexton looks that good with Garland at point guard, but I completely agree Sexton's future is at two guard. He played a lot of one on five when he tried being a point guard, which eventually leads to everyone else just standing around watching.

Q-Tip is right that the defense is the problem with Sexland, but Sexton at point isn't going to work either.

Delly makes young guards better. Like what I see from Garland so far this year.

He got knocked down in preseason and hit his head on the floor

Concussions get worse once you have previously had concussions. The one he got in 2019 when the Cavs had just required him from the Bucks was a serious one.
