NBA Rumors: Dallas Mavericks Pursuing Ramon Sessions

[blackbirdpie url=""]

NBA rumors are still the hot topic this month and this latest one involves former Los Angeles Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions.  After the trade for Steve Nash, the Lakers no longer need his service.  However, Sessions has a suitor in the Dallas Mavericks.

Basically, the Mavs need a point guard.  Sessions is not going to be too expensive and he is not half bad.  I think he just wilted under the pressure of being in LA last season.  Not every player can handle that atmosphere and Sessions proved to be one of those guys.  The Mavs are also going after Jason Kidd, so Sessions would be a nice complement to him.

I have always been a fan of Sessions’ game and he should add a little bit of youth to the Mavs.  That does not take a lot since they are so old, but Sessions should fit in well.  Getting to pass the ball to Dirk Nowitzki is going to help any point guard look good.  Sessions will certainly be out to prove everyone wrong.  His playoff meltdown has to inspire himself to prove himself wherever he ends up next.

The Mavs desperately need to get a decent signing this summer.  All of their main targets have spurned them and as long as they do not spend too much, Sessions is a good fit.  He won’t wow anyone but he is not going to kill them.  Then again, I thought LA picked up a steal when they traded for him.
