3 possible reasons why the Jazz are willing to part with Collin Sexton

At just 25 years old and coming off arguably his greatest NBA season, Collin Sexton reportedly may become available on the trade market, but why?

Following how everything has transpired in their last two seasons, the Utah Jazz have to decide whether they should embrace the rebuild or become a legitimate playoff contender. Because one thing is for sure - things can't stay they way they've been.

A pressure-free environment where the Jazz have occasionally punched up for stretches has been fun to watch, but when no progress is made, it gets old fast. So, they must decide where to go from here. HoopsHype's Michael Scotto's June 15 mock draft may have revealed what direction the Jazz will take this offseason when he reported the following.

"There’s also a belief from rival executives who spoke with HoopsHype that guards Collin Sexton and Jordan Clarkson could become available on the trade market."

In Clarkson's case, it makes sense. He's 32 years old, his contract's almost up, and if a rebuild is on the horizon, he doesn't fit the timeline. Sexton is a different story. He's only 25 years old, and he's coming off an excellent season, further explained here by Chad Porto.

Sexton has proven how efficient he can be as a scorer and may very well have another level to his game. Yet it hasn't felt like he's been embraced by the Jazz as they've started this next chapter, but why haven't they?
