And Last But Not Least, Collin Sexton

Finally, we get to talk about the man who gets placed against Trae Young the most. As of now, it’s probably clear that Young will go before Sexton. Needless to say, Sexton could still have an amazing NBA career.

Sexton didn’t necessarily finish the season the way he would have hoped. The Alabama Crimson Tide Men’s Basketball team finished the year with a 20-16 record, and Bama would eventually get bounced in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

In light of the team’s fairly average season, Sexton managed to end the year with 19.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. The 6-foot-3 guard possesses the ability to create for himself on offense, make the tough shot and force defenses to commit.

Often times, Sexton overdribbles and forces bad shots. Out of the other three players, Sexton aligns with the Hawks’ ethos the least, but who knows what system Pierce will put in place. Currently, the Hawks have DS17 on the books, and the two players have a similar game.
