The newest member of the Cleveland Cavaliers is doing what he can to convince LeBron James to return to the team.

Collin Sexton was drafted No. 8 overall by Cleveland on Thursday. The former Alabama star was asked to make his pitch to LeBron, who is considering opting out of his deal to become a free agent and sign elsewhere.

Sexton said that he recognized LeBron needed some extra pieces and thinks he could help him return to the NBA Finals:

Sexton was an excellent pick by Cleveland. We’re big fans of his ability and think he could do a lot for the Cavs. Unfortunately it does not seem like James is going to return to the Cavs.
