According to Fox Sports Ohio, the Cavaliers are shopping Ramon Sessions still, and he'll likely be dealt.
One source tells FOX Sports Ohio that “it’ll be a miracle” if Ramon Sessions is still with Cleveland after the trading deadline.
“I don’t know that they’re actively shopping him, but they’re certainly listening,” the source said. “It’s nothing personal. (Sessions and the Cavs) have a strong relationship. The Cavs really respect and admire him. They wouldn’t be against keeping him. But it‘s a tough situation. Kyrie (Irving) is the point guard of the future there, and Ramon could go somewhere else and start.”
Sessions has been linked to the L.A. Lakers, who were expected to step up their pursuit of him during All-Star weekend. “But I don’t know if that really ever happened,” one source said.
I've been kind of surprised how down some Lakers fans are on this particular deal. Sessions recently started for Kyrie Irving, who missed three games with a concussion. During his brief stint as a starter, Sessions averaged 18 points and 12 assists.
Seems to me that's a tad better than what Fisher is posting. Granted, Sessions is not a defensive stud, but if you can obtain him for the Dallas pick, why not? It's certainly an upgrade, and it immediately does three things: First, it brings scoring to the position. Second, it makes Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum better. Third, it takes some of the load off of Kobe Bryant.
That's getting a lot out of the Dallas pick. If Rondo doesn't work out, this makes a lot of sense.
