The Los Angeles Lakers are stepping up their efforts to trade for Cavaliers point guard Ramon Sessions, multiple Western Conference sources have told FOX Sports Ohio. According to one source, the Lakers’ interest in Sessions appeared to peak around All-Star weekend, but dwindled quickly when they learned the Cavs’ wouldn’t budge from receiving a first-round draft pick in return. But after exploring the market for a point guard, “the Lakers are finding a deal for Sessions may be the best fit,” a source said. FOXSportsOhio

The Cavs are also content keeping Sessions if they don’t get a deal they like. Teams have until Thursday afternoon to make a trade, or will be forced to wait until the season ends. Sessions, 25, is averaging 10.6 points and 5.1 assists in just less than 25 minutes per game as Kyrie Irving’s backup. “He’d be a big upgrade (for the Lakers) at point guard,” one source said.

The Los Angeles Lakers continue to express interest in Cleveland Cavaliers’ point guard Ramon Session. What’s the hold up? The Lakers want to use their $8.9 million traded-player exception to acquire Sessions. However, the Cavaliers have asked for a first-round pick to also be included in the deal. Like many trades around the NBA, the inclusion of a first-round pick is keeping this deal from going down. League sources believe one side will budge in the next day and Sessions will land in Los Angeles. HoopsWorld
