When the season tips off in November, Sessions will be playing on his fifth team in six NBA seasons. He was drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 56th pick (second round) in the 2007 NBA Draft and played his first two seasons there before moving to Minnesota in 2009-10. He was in Cleveland in 2010-11 and a portion of the 2011-12 season before being traded to the Lakers at the 2012 trade deadline.

“My NBA career has kind of been all over the place, but I think I found a home here in Charlotte,” said Sessions. “It’s going to be a great situation, and I’m looking forward to getting settled in.”

It’s hard to ignore a young point guard who has averaged 11.1 points, 5.0 assists and 3.1 rebounds in five seasons in the league, especially considering Sessions seems to be improving each season. However, how much Head Coach Mike Dunlap will use him and in what rotations could prove crucial to Sessions fantasy impact. I can’t image Sessions was brought on to get any less than 20-25 minutes per game, so he’ll be given the chance to improve on last season’s numbers. If he’s knocking down 3’s early in the season, you’ll probably be hoping you grabbed him later in your draft.

2012 Offseason Analysis - Ramon Sessions

Ramon Sessions

Cats Sign
Sessions' addition to the Bobcats is a return home for the Myrtle Beach, SC native who always wanted a chance to play in front of some hometown fans.

“It feels good,” Sessions told bobcats.com’s Eryn Gradwell back in July. “It put a smile on my face every time I was in Charlotte on the ride up here – knowing I’m close to home. That’s a good feeling. My friends and family can come and watch me play and I’m part of an organization headed down the right path.”

Sessions averaged 10.5 points, 5.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds while shooting 39.8 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from 3-point range in 41 games – including four starts – with Cleveland to start the season. When the Lakers acquired him in mid-March, Sessions excelled, starting 19 of 23 games and boosting those averages to 12.7 points, 6.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds and improving to 47.9 percent from the field and 48.6 percent from long range.

Still, Sessions best season scoring as a pro came with the Cavaliers in 2010-11 when he averaged 13.3 points in 26.3 minutes in Cleveland primarily as a reserve – starting 38 of 81 contests. His average of 12.2 points off the bench that season ranked him eighth best among all NBA reserves.

With Kemba Walker running the point and Sessions available as either a reserve or starter, that gives new Head Coach Mike Dunlap some options – options Sessions won’t be uncomfortable with. Having been in similar situations with Jonny Flynn and the Timberwolves in 2009-10 and Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers last season, Sessions is again ready to embrace his role of competitor and mentor.

“I’m looking forward to going out there and competing with a young guy (Walker) and teaching him what needs to be taught,” said Sessions. “We’ll just have fun playing the game.”

After connecting on a total of 13 treys in his first four seasons in the league, Sessions found his 3-point stroke in 2011-12. He hit 43 of his 97 attempts from long range with the Cavaliers and Lakers for an impressive 44.3 percent shooting clip behind the arc.

Not only can Sessions knock it down from long range; he also has the ability to drive the lane, take it to the rack and draw whistles. He’s gone to the line 1,299 times in his five seasons in the league, averaging 4.1 trips to the charity stripe each game and converting 78.7 percent of those freebies.
