Now that Ramon Sessions has signed an offer sheet with the Minnesota Timberwolves, how do the New York Knicks shore up their point guard position?

And does this mean their plans to clear cap space for the magical free agent summer of 2010 are on track?

What Sessions' signing does, Alan Hahn blogged Friday on Newsday, is leave the Knicks' roster virtually unchanged from the 32-win edition from 2008-09.

With a reported one-year deal in place for David Lee, the Knicks will more than likely offer a contract of similar length to guard Nate Robinson.

Signing Lee and Robinson for one-year stints would allow the Knicks to keep their roster focused on the next offseason.

Still, New York must be disappointed they couldn't get Sessions in the fold.

"There's no denying that Mike D'Antoni and his staff were in love with the idea of adding Sessions to the mix of young players,"

Hahn wrote.

"His athleticism fits into the up-tempo system and he's also a smart player who knows how to get to find the open man and the basket on the pick-and-roll."
