According to Chris Broussard we are interested in Session, same guy we tried to sign two summers ago until he accepted a more lucrative deal from Minnesota. Now we are trying to get him again, I think this is a great move especially if we trade Felton and buy out Billups would save us about 4-5 million. Also if we get Chris Paul or Deron Williams he could serve as a good 15-20min pg he'ss a big guard at 6'4 and gets to the line 5 FTA.
What do you think?
His deal runs longer than Ray's. Would we have the available cap in the new CBA to sign a CP3 or DWill?
His deal is less expensive than Raymond's and would solve our back up pg problem for 2012 when Paul and Williams become free. We can trade Azzy's expiring contract and a 2nd rounder to Cleveland since they are looking to Shred salary. We would be basically saving an extra 4-5million we could use on a solid big like Perkins or Dalembert
That would be our 9 man rotation for the rest of the year could possibly net us a couple more wins for a 45 win season and maybe a ECF appearance or second round exit, The we load up in the off season get a big and a bench scorer(Crawford?) and boom legit ECF contenders and we get Paul or Williams and Bam hang some banners!
All we have to do now is get the Melo deal done and if we trade Felton get Sessions buyout Billups, If not Felton comes off the books 2012 we can make a play for Dwight,Paul,Williams and form a real Super 3 not a Bitch 3
Sessions averages 17.1 pts/7.5 asts/4 rbs per 36 minutes this season. 15/7/4 for his career. Imagine his dimes in this system? Hes a true PG
Couldn't agree more. I've always wanted Sessions, and was pissed when we missed out.
He is extremely limited w his range, but he is a solid true pg, with a lot of nice skills.
Melo, Sessions, and a backup big this offseason and we are mint.
I predicate our Felton-Billups swap in Walsh holding fast against DEN, and not trading Gallo. I keep hearing we may take back more $ too, which I guess makes sense.
No thank you. I prefer Toney Douglas as our backup PG. I know Toney struggles at creating plays, but he's my type of player. Good defender and big time hustler.
Felton won't get traded.
Just believe in Toney and he'll become better. No need to ruin his career for an average player.
Let's for once just develop our talent and be proud of our work in 2-3 years.
We're not Miami, we don't rent 12 players to win a ring.
I prefer the Oklahoma/Seattle way of building your own team based on home grown players. Gives you something to be proud of as a fan.
Damn we should have gotten Sessions as a back up he just straight beasted tonight
good point guard but he cant shoot,great at everything else but has no jumpa
You think we still pursue Sessions.
Cleveland with the #1 & #4 are guaranteed to be taking a point guard, either Irving or B. Knight.
Do you think we step in and try to swipe Sessions as our backup guard? Havn't seen this mentioned yet.
Knicks Eye Cavs Guard Ramon Sessions
Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have won the first pick in the NBA draft, point guard Ramon Sessions appears to be the odd man out. And the New York Knicks would be interested in him. Newsday reported that the Knicks would have interest in Sessions, who may not have a roster spot should the Cavaliers - as expected - select point guard Kyrie Irving with the first pick in the June draft. The Cavaliers also have veteran Baron Davis, who would be more difficult to move because of his prohibitive contract and could serve as a mentor to Irving, who is projected by most draft experts to be the No. 1 pick.
Sessions has two years left on a four-year, $16 million contract. The Knicks have veteran Chauncey Billups under contract for one more season and also have Toney Douglas, who often is used at shooting guard. Sessions averaged a career-high 13.3 points and 5.2 assists last season. He has played for three teams in four years.
