During 2023–24, Sexton shot 48.7% from the field, 39.4% from outside the arc, and 85.9% from the free-throw line, averaging 18.7 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 4.9 assists. Next season, he will earn $18.4 million.

Buckley noted, “But Sexton could steal some glances in South Beach, where the Heat could use more downhill force and perimeter punch.” “His relentlessly intense drive would be a perfect fit for our #culture, and he could give the second team the offensive boost it lost when Tyler Herro moved up to the starting lineup.”

NBA expert Michael Scotto of HoopsHype claims that the Jazz may deal Jordan Clarkson and Sexton in the offseason. In 2023–24, Utah finished 31–51, missing the playoffs for the second straight year.

“Moreover, opposing executives who spoke with HoopsHype expressed the opinion that guards Jordan Clarkson and Collin Sexton might become available via trade,” Scotto stated.

With the Cleveland Cavaliers and Jazz, Sexton has averaged 18.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 3.6 assists throughout his career.

In five games, the Heat was defeated by the Boston Celtics in the 2024 postseason’s opening round. Due to a knee ailment, All-Star Jimmy Butler was out for the whole series.

This offseason, Butler becomes eligible for an extension; NBA reporter Anthony Chiang of The Miami Herald reports that Butler is anticipated to pursue a two-year agreement valued at approximately $113 million.

Next season, Butler will earn $48.8 million. For the 2025–2026 campaign, he has a $52.4 million player option.

A six-time All-Star, Butler shot 49.9% from the field, 41.4% from beyond the arc, and 85.8% from the free-throw line in 2023–24 while averaging 20.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.3 steals, and 0.3 blocks.
