Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have added the game’s best player, forward LeBron James, and another star in power forward Kevin Love, they need to add a few more pieces. They are trying to convince veteran guard Ray Allen to return for another season and are also very interested in adding a big man.
According to Terry Pluto of The Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Cavaliers would like to add a point guard, but won’t if they wind up signing Allen.
Griffin mentioned adding a point guard before training camp. If Ray Allen decides to sign, that won’t be the case. But if Allen doesn’t sign they may be interested. It is not viewed as a major need.
The point guard market has mostly dried out but there is former Cavalier who can still play – veteran Ramon Sessions. Sessions has recently been tied to the Houston Rockets but a deal seems unlikely.
Sessions averaged 12.3 points, 4.1 assists and 2.4 rebounds per game while shooting 42.9% from the field, 28.2% from beyond the arc and 80.7% from the free throw line for both the Milwaukee Bucks and Charlotte Hornets last season. Sessions, who has also played for the Lakers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers, has put up 11.7 points, 4.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds while shooting 43.9% from the field, 31.1% from three and 80.0% from the charity stripe in his seven-year career.
Of course, this is all speculation and the Cavaliers have not been tied to Sessions – yet.
