Lakers Continue To Express Interest In Sessions

4:11pm: According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, the Lakers and Cavs tried to bring the Rockets into the mix to facilitate a Sessions deal. In the proposed trade, the Lakers would have received Sessions from Cleveland and future considerations from Houston; the Rockets would have received a first-round pick from the Lakers; and the Cavs would have received Jonny Flynn from the Rockets. Those talks are dormant for now, says McMenamin.

12:29pm: The Lakers are stepping up their pursuit of Sessions, reports Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio. While L.A. initially balked at Cleveland's asking price of a first-round pick, a source tells Amico now that the Lakers have explored the trade market, they're "finding a deal for Sessions may be the best fit."

8:56am: With two days until the trade deadline, the Lakers continue to express interest in Ramon Sessions, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld (via Twitter). The Lakers have been linked to Sessions for weeks.

It seems to me that the Lakers are exploring all their trade options in hopes of making a bigger splash, viewing Sessions as a fallback option. Cleveland's asking price for its backup point guard reportedly isn't outlandish, and I think a late first-round pick would get a deal done. The Lakers figure to have two at their disposal, having acquired the Mavericks' first-rounder for Lamar Odom.

Sessions also fits nicely into the $8.9MM trade exception the Lakers received in exchange for Odom. Although acquiring any player would have tax ramifications for Los Angeles, Sessions' $4.26MM cap figure is more reasonable than the salaries of other players the Lakers have been linked to, such as Michael Beasley ($6.26MM), Raymond Felton ($7.56MM), and Kirk Hinrich ($8.1MM).

    If the Rox trade Flynn ( Believe me I will be the first to say goodbye) then they are without a back up PG until Lowry gets back.

      Don’t worry about that. We can give you D.Fisher as a back-up. Even at 36, he is better than Flynn. Then, when Lowry comes back, you can just waive Fisher, if you don’t like him.

    I hope this works out!

    We should go after Felton. Trade Blake and Ebanks straight up…

    Anything but Hinrick. Sessions would definitely put LA over the top.

    Extra $ 4.2 millions should not be a big deal for the Lakers owner, since he got $ 3.0 BILLIONS from the TV rights.If you are going to count your pennys with team as the Lakers, then simply don’t do this business.
    Ramon Sessions is the perfect fit for our team.
    Get rid of MWP and L.Walton and you save $ 12.4 millions. Why are they still on the roster?
