“2:30, 3 o’clock in the morning, I don’t know too many people got that bounce like that…not at 3 o’clock,” Sexton said at the end of the video.

Sexton clearly has a strong work ethic, and he’s looking to get himself back to the level that he was at with the Cleveland Cavaliers before he tore his meniscus last season.

Sexton was the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. His best season so far came in the 2020-21 campaign, as he averaged 24.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game while shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 37.1 percent from beyond the arc.

However, the knee injury cost him most of the 2021-22 campaign, and he was dealt to the Jazz in a trade for Donovan Mitchell this past offseason.

Now, the young guard is looking to make his mark in Utah for a Jazz team that has outperformed expectations so far this season.

Utah was expected to be one of the worst teams in the NBA, but the Jazz are currently the No. 10 seed in the Western Conference and have a .500 record at 27-27.

Sexton has played mainly a bench role for the Jazz, starting just 10 of the 41 games he’s appeared in this season.

A proven scorer, Sexton is averaging 14.2 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 23.7 minutes per game this season. He’s shooting 50.4 percent from the field and 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.

The efficiency has been great for Sexton, and even though he hasn’t been a top option for Utah this season, the Jazz seem to be committed to him for the long haul.

As part of the Mitchell trade, Sexton signed a four-year deal that will keep him in Utah through the 2025-26 season.

The Jazz may not be title contenders this season, but they have a lot of solid youngsters on their roster. Sexton’s work ethic will be key for Utah to get to the next level in the coming seasons.
