The 30-year-old returned to Charlotte this summer on two-year, $12.3 million deal.
Per the Charlotte Observer:
“For me, giving back to the University of Nevada means a lot,” Sessions said in a statement released by Nevada. “This was always a second home for me, a place that gave me a chance when a lot of schools didn’t.
“I know the coaches are excited about (the new facility). And once this gets going, I know the (Reno) community will be excited about it.”
Nevada offered Sessions a scholarship late in the recruiting process after Sessions qualified academically to play as a freshman. He is entering his 10th NBA season, and will play behind starter Kemba Walker.
