They say size can be problematic in the NBA and nobody knows that better than free agent point guard Ramon Sessions. Despite having a positive win-share every season during his seven-year NBA career, the former Nevada product remains unsigned.
At 6’3 (on his best day), Sessions is one of the smaller point’s in the NBA and has proven to be somewhat of a defensive liability given his small stature. That has understandably scared some teams away, but there are plenty of NBA franchises employing extremely poor defenders who are of more typical size so it’s rather odd to see the veteran without a team at this point in free agency.
Because of that, however, Chuck Myron of Hoops Rumors believes that Ramon Sessions could prove to be a bargain free agent addition.
He (Ramon Sessions) was something of a high profile trade deadline acquisition for the Lakers in 2012, and it’s not as if his production since then is all that different from what he had done to that point. He’ll probably end up signing for the minimum, and he’ll be a bargain when he does. He averaged better than 15 PPG for the Bucks down the stretch this year.
While not much of a defender, Sessions has never had a problem putting the ball in the basket and coming off the bench, that’s a very valuable asset.
In addition, he’s decently effective ( a career 44 percent) and can see the floor well given his near 2.5 to-1 assist to turnover ratio.
For a minimum contract (or anything close) it seems as if Ramon Sessions can be a steal. The Houston Rockets previously were linked to Sessions.
