As the hours tick away before Thursday’s NBA Trade Deadline, Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Ramon Sessions might be the hottest name on the market.
Several teams are looking for help at the point and the 24-year-old Sessions has stepped up his play of late. Despite starting just 21 games this season for the atrocious Cavs this season, he has averaged 19.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 8.9 assists in his last 10 games. Sessions has also hit 58.6 percent of his shots from the field, and is nailing 88.5 percent of his free throws in that stretch.
It appears as if Sessions has finally figured out this whole NBA thing, despite being on his third team in his four years in the league. He opened his career with two years in Milwaukee, spent last year with the Minnesota Timberwolves, then landed with the Cavs this year.
As of now, the New York Knicks, Atlanta Hawks and Portland Trail Blazers are expressing interest in the Nevada product.
The Blazers would like to get Sessions and Manny Harris but don’t seem willing to give up any pieces the Cavs are actually interested in.
The Hawks, however, are currently considering sending Jeff Teague and Maurice Evans for Sessions and Harris. We’re going to go ahead assume there will also be picks exchanged in that deal.
As for the Knicks, they would like a younger point guard now that they have shipped Raymond Felton to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony deal. The problem is, they exhausted all of their attractive resources to get the Anthony deal done. The Knicks just don’t seem to have the kind of rebuilding pieces the Cavs would be looking for.
Right now, if he does move, it appears that Sessions is most likely headed to the Hawks, who have been desperately searching for help a the point. The Hawks have also been named as possible destinations for Felton and Indiana’s T.J. Ford.
