Sessions played 55 games last season with the Hornets, before being shipped to the Milwaukee Bucks in February as a part of the deal that sent Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour to Charlotte.
The 28-year-old guard averaged averaged 12.3 points (43 percent shooting from the field and 28 percent from beyond the arc) , 4.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds last season. More importantly, he finished the season on a high note. He averaged 15.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds in his 22 appearances with Milwaukee.
As evidenced by his poor three-point percentage, Sessions isn’t much of a shooter. However, he does a nice job of attacking the basket and is a decent distributor.
He’s certainly not a game-changing player, but the Bulls and Hornets could do wore than having Sessions as a point guard coming off of the bench.
Returning to the Bucks also figures to be an option for Sessions. The guard told the Journal Sentinel before free agency that he would be open to coming back to Milwaukee, who drafted him in 2007..
“It was like home,” Sessions said. “It was my first home and a team that gave me a chance when nobody else did. I want to stay loyal to them like they did to me.
“A lot of people wondered how I would react (to the trade). It’s a blessing to be in the NBA. You really didn’t know what the playing time would be coming in. But the sky is the limit for me. I played the most minutes I probably played in my whole career. It was good; it was fun.”
Sessions has played for five teams throughout his seven-year career.
