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.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski and his sources, it looks like the Orlando Magic are going to stick it out with Dwight Howard this season.

Clippers GM Neil Olshey said last week that by the time a trade rumor has reached sites like Hoops Hype and I Am A GM or Twitter, it’s a dead end. So, people of the world, relax on the trade talk; the Lakers are getting rid of Pau Gasol, the Knicks are going after Steve Nash, Monta Ellis, etc. etc. More often than not, it’s one team leaking the information to get another team to up the ante.
Trade talk and obsessing over potential trades will only make you mental. Unless Adrian Wojnarowski says something is happening, then it’s probably going to happen.

You can’t find anyone in Nash’s circle who expects him to try to manufacture an exit anytime soon — even when there are fans out there who say they’d understand — given how secure he is with his place in the game and his deep bond with the likes of fellow thirtysomething (Grant) Hill.
The deal (or non-deal) on Steve Nash right now.
