Bucks Assign Ramon Sessions To Tulsa 66ers

NEW YORK, November 8, 2007 – The Milwaukee Bucks have assigned rookie guard Ramon Sessions to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Tulsa 66ers. Sessions was drafted in the second round (56th overall) of the 2007 NBA Draft and signed with the Bucks on Sept. 11, 2007. He averaged 2.0 points and 1.3 rebounds in 7.3 minutes in three preseason games.

Sessions is the first NBA player assigned to a D-League team this season. Twenty-four NBA players were assigned to D-League affiliates during the 2006-07 season.

“This is an opportunity for Ramon to see regular minutes and further develop his skills,” said Bucks General Manager Larry Harris. “Coach Meyer and the Tulsa organization are receiving a talented, young player, and we look forward to watching Ramon’s progress as a member of the 66ers.”

Sessions was a finalist for the Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award during his junior season at the University of Nevada-Reno. During his junior year, the Myrtle Beach, S.C. native averaged 12.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists and earned Second Team All-WAC honors. For his career, he ranks second in Nevada-Reno history with 478 assists and ninth in steals with 113.

The 6-3, 190 pound guard is expected to be in Tulsa for the beginning of the 66ers’ training camp this weekend.
