The Houston Rockets aren’t exactly deep at the point guard position, especially after they decided to trade Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers earlier this month. Sure, they have Ish Smith and a collection of sub-par talent, but they need improvement if they’re to compete in the tough Western Conference.
One player who the Houston Rockets supposedly have interest in is veteran point Ramon Sessions.
Sessions, who most recently played for the Milwaukee Bucks is a bit of a career journeyman as he’s played for six organizations during his seven-year NBA career. That said, he’s produced at every stop which is why the Houston Rockets are showing interest according to Carolina Live.
“You wanna win, but the NBA is a business. You take the opportunity that is there and we’re looking at all options. I like being on the rebuilding teams also. It’s one of those things where those guys respect me and I can come in and show my leadership, because I’ve been around a little bit,” Sessions said.
Sources close to the former University of Nevada star say he’s had discussions with a few NBA teams, including the Houston Rockets.
Sessions has struggled with his shot in recent years, though is known for his ability to see the floor as evidenced by his career totals of 4.7 assists to just 1.4 turnovers.
Of course, at just 6’3 and 190 pounds, Sessions isn’t much on the defensive end. His lack of size combined with his inability to stay in front of his man has caused problems in the past, though with Patrick Beverly on the roster and Dwight Howard clogging the lane it’s possible that Sessions defensive insufficiency could be masked rather well.
