Another day, another Lakers rumor of sorts.
Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Los Angeles Lakers have expressed an interest in trading for Cleveland Cavaliers back up point guard Ramon Sessions.
As we all know by now, the Lakers’ point guard options look fairly glum right now. Derek Fisher, while he may hit the occasional big shot, isn’t going to turn back the clock, Steve Blake is still on the injured list and rookies Darius Morris & Andrew Goudelock have been sporadically effective when given time off the bench. It only makes sense to find a temporary solution to keep up with the glut of speedy point guards in the Western Conference.
A deal for Sessions makes sense for the Lakers and could be affective use of the Lamar Odom trade exception, but you never quite know with this current Lakers regime. With Orlando’s current landslide and the Nets playing like, well, the Nets, maybe Mitch Kupchak could pull off a mega deal landing Dwight Howard and Deron Williams.
