According to Yahoo!'s Mark Spears, the Charlotte Bobcats are in the process of finalizing a deal with free agent point guard Ramon Sessions. While Sessions is a decent player, the Bobcats would be smart to avoid adding him to the roster.
Yes, the Bobcats are rumored to be shopping D.J. Augustin and will need a backup point guard to second-year man Kemba Walker, but Sessions isn't worth the money he will get paid. With the Los Angeles Lakers last season, Sessions didn't improve the team's offense much. When you consider how much talent he had around him, it's shocking that he didn't put up better numbers in Los Angeles.
In 23 games with the Lakers, Sessions averaged 12.7 points, 6.2 assists and 2.6 turnovers in 30.5 minutes per game. In the playoffs he was incredible disappointing and essentially disappeared. There is a reason the Bobcats would be Sessions' fifth team in six NBA seasons.
I get that the Bobcats are just trying to add depth to their roster, but with guys like Aaron Brooks, Randy Foye and O.J. Mayo still out there, moving this quickly on Sessions is the wrong move.
Frankly, the Bobcats should just keep D.J. Augustin and focus on adding depth in other areas. I'm just not a big fan of what Sessions brings to the table and think the Bobcats have other areas of need to focus on before adding another point guard.
Charlotte's personnel moves have puzzled me for years, so this doesn't come as a surprise. I just don't think Sessions is the team's best option right now.
