The Ramon Session trade which has long been prevalent in NBA trade rumors may be about to go down. It is still unclear which team the Cleveland Cavaliers will trade Sessions to, but it could end up becoming the LA Lakers.
According to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal, "Cavs keeping quiet, but I've been told Ramon Sessions will be moved today. Not sure yet if they'll get the 1st rd pick they've been seeking." Lloyd later noted that, "Sessions is a secondary deal right now for a team like the Lakers, who are more concerned with completing Beasley."
That Michael Beasley trade that Lloyd referenced was covered on Gather earlier and is part of a larger three-team deal. It doesn't solve the issue of the Lakers needing a point guard, which is likely why he is getting brought up in correlation to getting sent out to the Western Conference.
It's no surprise that Sessions is getting talked about in NBA trade rumors again, especially because he may not keep his spot on the depth chart in Cleveland. With Kyrie Irving the point guard of the future for the Cavaliers, there is no point to keeping Sessions on the roster. Thus a trade makes a lot of sense, especially if they can bring in a pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. While it is clear that Sessions will get traded soon, it is very murky about where he will be playing basketball next.
Is a Ramon Sessions trade by the Cleveland Cavaliers the right decision? Should the LA Lakers be calling to find out what they can do to bring in Sessions?
