Report: Lakers free agent Ramon Sessions to sign with Charlotte Bobcats
Los Angeles Lakers free agent Ramon Sessions will reportedly sign with Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats, according to a tweet Thursday afternoon from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
Sessions spent last season with the Lakers, playing only 23 games because of injury. But he averaged 12.6 points and 6.2 assists in 30 minutes per game for the team last year and shot 48-percent from the field and 49-percent from three.
He has shown flashes of brilliance at times; as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks, Sessions recorded a team record 24 assists to go with 20 points and eight rebounds in a 2008 game against the Chicago Bulls. That same year, he scored 44 points against the Detroit Pistons.
Sessions made $4.2 million in his one year with the Lakers. Terms of his new contract have not yet been disclosed.
