Dallas Mavericks Reportedly Interested in Ramon Sessions

by July 06, 2012

With Jason Kidd on his way to New York, and Steve Nash LA-bound, the Dallas Mavericks have reportedly turned their attention on free agent point guard Ramon Sessions. From ESPN: “The Dallas Mavericks, in the aftermath of Thursday’s stunning departure of point guard Jason Kidd, have reached out for a second time to Ramon Sessions, this time with a starting job to pitch. A source close to the situation said the Mavs initially contacted Sessions’ representatives prior to Kidd opting to pass on a three-year, $9 million offer from Dallas and instead agreeing to a similar deal to join the New York Knicks. After Kidd reached his decision to move on, the Mavs again reached out to Sessions, the 26-year-old point guard that was traded from Cleveland to the Lakers at the trade deadline last season. Sessions, the source said, is seeking a starting job and security. The source said another round of talks with the Mavs are set for Friday. Sessions opted out of the final year of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent and was removed from the Lakers’ plan when they completed a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns for two-time MVP Steve Nash.”
