Lakers free agent point guard Ramon Sessions reportedly will sign a multi-year contract with the Charlotte Bobcats, according to multiple sources.
Sessions became a free agent after opting out of the final year of his contract with the Lakers in hopes of securing a long-term deal. Sessions fate with the Lakers was sealed once LA acquired veteran Steve Nash in a sign-and-trade deal with the Suns.
Sessions was traded to the Lakers by the Cavs along with Christian Eyenga for Luke Walton and a 2012 1st round draft pick and played well at times for L.A., averaging 12.7 ppg and 6.2 apg is 23 games with the Lakers. Sessions struggled in the playoffs though, as his totals dipped to 9.7 ppg and 3.6 apg while often being replaced in late game situations by reserve Steve Blake.
Sessions is a slashing point guard who is best attacking the basket and in pick & roll situations. Sessions will join a Bobcats back court that now includes Kemba Walker Ben Gordon and restricted free agent D.J. Augustin, who will most likely be traded soon.
For his career, Sessions has averaged 11.1 ppg, 5.0 apg and 3.1 rpg in five seasons with the Bucks, Timberwolves, Cavs and Lakers. The Bobcats will be Sessions 5th team since Milwaukee drafted him in the second round out of Nevada in 2007.
