Bobcats reach deal with point guard Ramon Sessions

The lowly Bobcats just got better.

The Bobcats have come to terms on a deal for point guard Ramon Sessions, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports and the Charlotte Observer.

This is a good move, it gives the Bobcats a more known, steady entity to pair with Kemba Walker at the point. Sessions is a good pick-and-roll point guard who attacks and gets points for himself and sets others up. With the Lakers at the end of last season he averaged 12.7 points while shooing 47.9 percent (48 percent from three) and he averaged 6.2 assists per game. Sessions struggled for the Lakers in his first playoffs ever. The Lakers still talked about brining him back, but after signing Steve Nash there was no need.

Sessions is an upgrade at the point for the Bobcats. Good signing. And he won’t have to worry about his playoff performance this year.

      But he’s not in the same league as the great Joel Anthony, right 72?

    Dare I say it… championship?

    There’s an part of me that wishes the Lakers would’ve resigned him and let him play the year with the unit. He could at least keep up with Westbrook.

    Best cure for the playoff yips I’ve ever seen.

      I hope the money upgrade is worth having 3 times as many losses.

    whoa whoa whoa there… I wonder if they offered him the most money?? Maybe they sold him on being the starting pg on the team no matter what, which could appeal after being bounced from 2 different teams. Surprising that he chose them over a lot of other teams

      I’m not shocked… he has been on losing teams for most of his career…. that seems to be his comfort zone. Bucks,T-Wolves,Cavs…then he got a little taste of winning with the Lakers…now it’s back to losing with the Bobcats. I guess it’s nice to see someone choose a small market team but Sessions has a really odd career arc. Don’t worry Kings fans you will get your turn.

    so long dj augustin, enjoy greener pastures.

    well…RS proved he is not a starting PG in this league (had his shot with the Lakers but disappearing in the playoffs destroyed his stock/value) but is an excellent back up. great signing by the bobcats. he will get decent playing time there and provide good depth. i wish him the best.

    He is from the classiest place in the lower 48 states, MYRTLE BEACH

  12. danfrommv - Jul 12, 2012 at 4:46 PM

    I didn’t see any mention of the money in the contract. I wonder if he made as much as he would have before opting out of his last contract.

  13. teambringitstrong - Jul 12, 2012 at 4:48 PM

    RS, man I don’t know what you were thinking when you decided to opt out and become a FA. You could have stayed in L.A, abeit as a backup to Nash and been solid and not have to worry about nutting up down the stretch in playoff games.
    Well at least in Salad, you won’t have that worry either.

  14. cantonbound13 - Jul 12, 2012 at 5:18 PM

    They should have kept Felton. That tyros Thomas trade was a mess, they also lost their 1st round pick to the Bulls next year for him, ouch!

  15. C. White - Jul 12, 2012 at 6:00 PM

    it is top 12 protected next year, so likely not going to chicago
