HoopsHype Ramon Sessions rumors

March 14, 2014 Updates

One of the last deals to be announced, at the deadline, was the Charlotte Bobcats’ decision to send guard Ramon Sessions and forward Jeff Adrien to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for guards Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour. For Sessions, who had a prominent role in Bobcats’ nightly rotation, news of the deal completely blindsided the veteran who fully believed he was safe in Charlotte. “To be honest the trade was kind of last minute,” Sessions told Basketball Insiders on being dealt to Milwaukee. “I didn’t really hear too much coming up to the trade deadline but as we got closer I started getting calls from my agent and hearing certain things were happening behind the scenes. But it’s one of those things in the league that when it happens, you got to pack up and be ready to move on to another team.” Basketball Insiders

If Sessions hadn't declined his option, he might still be the Lakers' point guard (he was seeking a deal similar to what Charlotte gave him) and there might not have been a rabid pursuit of Nash, who cost them two first-round draft picks and two second-round picks. "I think about it at times," Sessions said Saturday before his current team lost to the Lakers, 88-85. "It's one of those things that when I opted out, I wasn't expecting to leave. I was expecting to work something out. But you know how the NBA business is. "A few weeks later, they end up signing Steve Nash. He was a great player, a Hall of Fame player. That's what they wanted." Los Angeles Times

In a recent Journal Times’ survey of 35 NBA players and advance scouts, Bryant was their overwhelming choice as the “NBA’s Most Competitive’’ player. Among those casting votes for Bryant were two players who have witnessed his almost-demonic determination up close and personal: former teammate and current Charlotte guard Ramon Sessions and current teammate Steve Blake. “Just having played with Kobe, I have seen how extremely competitive he is,’’ Sessions said. “I think he’s in his 17th season now and he’s still got a will to win like nobody else. He’s all about winning. He’ll do everything in his power to win.’’ Racine Journal-Times

Henry Thomas, the agent for Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, told the Sun Sentinel that he plans to appeal Wade's one-game NBA suspension for Wade's kick to the groin of Charlotte Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions. While Wade was forced to sit out Friday's loss to the Detroit Pistons, with that part of the sanction not subject to appeal, Thomas told the Sun Sentinel that Wade would appeal the lost wages, which are in excess of $150,000 for the missed game. "We are doing it on the basis that I don't think the suspension was warranted," Thomas said. South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Sessions returned to Staples Center when the Lakers hosted the Bobcats on Tuesday, maintaining zero regrets on how he handled free agency.

Every game should be won, especially when you’re at home," Davis said, before getting a little more serious. "We’ll see if he can back it up. We’ll see. Sulia
