Rumor: Kings looking to make minor deal, Ramon Sessions available
Ramon Sessions has long been a solid reserve point guard — aggressive coming off the pick-and-roll, he knows how to get to the line and is a solid floor general. However, this year in Sacramento he has taken a step back — he is shooting just 35.3 percent, he’s getting to the line less often, and his PER has dropped to 9.6 (the kind of number that suggests he should be in the D-League).
So the Kings are testing the trade market for Sessions.
That’s the word from Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee.
Kings looking to make a deal. No blockbuster but Ramon Sessions could be on the move. Jordan Farmar a possible target, per source— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) January 13, 2015
Sessions has missed the last nine games with a back issue (it will be 10 Tuesday night), he’s going to have to prove he is healthy and can still play before any team is going to express interest.
The Clippers have not been in love with the production of Jordan Farmar backing up Chris Paul. The question is would a change of setting be the answer to Session’s woes? Also, Sessions does not bring any defense to the Clippers bench. The Clippers are likely more focused on fixing their issues at the three.
As for the Kings, this kind of move is fine but they clearly have bigger questions to answer. Like who is the coach next season? And what kind of team are they trying to build, anyway?
