Celtics Should Target Ramon Sessions
The Boston Celtics figure to be very active leading up to this week’s trading deadline and they are certain to be linked to many names as the week moves forward. One guy that would make a ton of sense for the organization is Charlotte Bobcats backup point guard Ramon Sessions. He is having a great season coming off the bench for first year head coach Mike Dunlap. Sessions is kind of a weird player because he is very talented, but has played on five teams before turning 27 years old. Drafted in the second round by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2007 NBA Draft, he is one of those rare second rounder’s who has found a niche in this league.
Sessions has been very productive as the backup to starting point guard Kemba Walker this season. Even though he is coming off the bench, he is still averaging 27 minutes per game and has nice averages of 15 points and four assists per game. He has proven in the past that he is more than capable of putting up some great performances. Signed to a two year contract at $5 million per, he is very affordable and offers great production at his current value.
Sessions would be a great fit in the Celtics locker room, especially since Rajon Rondo is out for the rest of the season. Avery Bradley and Courtney Lee are doing a nice job of filling in at the position, but Sessions is much more of a pure ball handler and leading man. A Brandon Bass for Sessions deal makes sense and is one the Celtics would love to do as Sessions has one less year on his contract.
Ramon Sessions would be an excellent fit for the Celtics organization and GM Danny Ainge figures to take a look at him leading up to the deadline.
