Currently without Steve Blake, the Lakers attempted to bolster their point guard spot prior to the season, but a potential agreement for Chris Paul was vetoed by commissioner David Stern. Los Angeles acquired an $8.9MM traded player exception when they dealt Lamar Odom to the Mavericks, and could put a portion of that trade exception toward Sessions, who will earn about $4.2MM this season.
Sessions, 25, has seen a reduction in his minutes in Cleveland this year, as he plays behind top pick Kyrie Irving. In about 22 minutes per game, the fifth-year guard has averaged 9.1 points and 4.3 assists, with a field goal percentage (.340) far below his career rate.
Wojnarowski adds that the Lakers also recently worked out free agent Morris Peterson.
