The Sacramento Kings today acquired guard Andre Miller from the Washington Wizards in exchange for guard Ramon Sessions, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro. “Adding Andre bolsters our backcourt with one of the most prolific ball distributors in the game,” said D’Alessandro. “He’ll also provide veteran leadership to the lockeroom and a wealth of experience at the point guard position. We’re excited to have him join the team. We also want to thank Ramon and wish him the best moving forward.”
Sessions has been the subject of trade talk after starting the season slowly and then missing time because of a back injury. The speculation doesn’t bother Sessions, who signed a two-year contract before the season. The trade deadline is Feb. 19. “For me, it seems I’m always brought up around the deadline,” Sessions said. “I just look at it as one of those things where another team wants me. I’ve been around a little bit. It’s a business and you can’t control what happens around the trade deadline if something is going to happen or not. I just take it day by day.”

Kings looking to trade Ramon Sessions?

While nothing the magnitude of last season’s trade for Rudy Gay is imminent, the Kings are exploring trades, with backup point guard Ramon Sessions the most likely candidate to be dealt. According to a league source, the Kings discussed a deal that would have sent Sessions to the Los Angeles Clippers for guard Jordan Farmar. Sessions has missed the last 10 games because of a low back strain.

Gasol has stuck in his craw a failed 2009 trade — driven by former Griz coach Marc Iavaroni — that would have sent Conley to Milwaukee for Ramon Sessions and Joe Alexander. Conley hasn’t dwelled on it. He’s instead allowed his play to speak loudly as one of the main voices among the Grizzlies’ cry for relevancy as a Western Conference contender. Conley is coming off a season in which he averaged a career-best 17.2 points by attacking the rim at a rate that ranked 15th in the league. Conley’s 8.6 turnovers per 100 possessions ranked third among point guards behind Chris Paul and Jose Calderon. “Man,” forward Zach Randolph said, “I don’t know where we would be without Mike.”
Sessions has been somewhat evasive as to why, but he has been quoted as saying it was “definitely different” playing with Bryant. Internally, the Lakers were rattled by his departure and came to believe that Kobe was the key. It meant little as a transaction but everything as a sign of how players with options view this team. “Peek behind the banners,” says one longtime NBA agent, “and it’s rotten.” “Kobe is like the big rock in their front yard,” says an agent who has had a Lakers client in recent years. “You can’t mow over it, so you just have to mow around it.”
