    Default Re: Potential destinations for Ramon Sessions

    Cavs could trade Sessions and Jamison to the Pacers for Granger and their 1st round pick: http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=6rrqm97

    This allows Paul George to move to the starting lineup and also gives them Jamison coming off the bench to help with scoring. Not to mention it gives the Pacers more depth at PG and provides them with a great deal of cap flexibility for next year.

    The Cavs get to give TT more minutes plus get a starting caliber SF for Kyrie to grow with. And of course we get an extra first round draft pick.

    Not sure Indiana would trade Granger though...

    Not sure if theyd be willing to give up Granger. Although he may be overpaid, hes their franchise player.

    This is the trade ive been preaching the whole time. We get back the Dallas and the Indy pick.

"But the likelihood is that this is the team that's going to finish into the playoffs. That's just the way it normally works, but we'll see."

    While Kobe Bryant has been critical of Kupchak in the past, he offered his support recently.

    "The good thing is he trusts the organization, and we'll do everything we can do to get better," Kupchak said. "We'll look to do something big, and we'll look to do something small, or maybe we'll do nothing at all. Sometimes a small deal is all a team needs to get over a hump, so I wouldn't categorize something that we're looking to do as big, small or medium."

    This has smokescreen written all over it.

    And Kupchak is the master of smokescreens.

    Not new, but part of a large Broussard article on Laker trade stuff:

    ----
    Of course, the Lakers need a point guard even more than a small forward. While they worked out Gilbert Arenas last week, they have not come to a decision on him. They want to see if they can get another point guard, such as Cleveland's Ramon Sessions, before making a play for Arenas. There's a good chance they can get Sessions for a first-round draft pick before the deadline, sources say. If they don't get Sessions or someone else, they may bring Arenas aboard.

    Still the most likely deal the Cavs make, and if the Lakers get dusted again in the playoffs like they did by the Mavs last year, it could end up being a slightly higher Laker 1st than we're accustomed to seeing most years.

    Not really. Unlike the NFL, the NBA draft order (after the lottery) is determined by regular season record, and the playoffs have no bearing on that order.

    This deal just needs to get done. Sessions for a first. They get better at no cost. We get another asset that can help position us to grab the guy we want.

    Lakers likely to "accelerate" their pursuit of Cavs PG Ramon Sessions over the All-Star break, says Western Conference source.

    I'd like to try and get both the first rounders they have, and maybe throw back NO's second. But if anything we better get whichever is the more favorable pick between theirs and Dallas

    Semi-related question. If, or when Sessions is traded who backs up the pg spot?

    Please dont say Manny Harris or Boobie. They are 2's.

    Does anyone feel like we could invite Ben Uzoh back for 10-15 minutes a night? Is there a deadline on signing players to 10 day contracts or for the rest of the season?

    What are some other options?

    According to Larry Coon on the old CBA: "A team may sign a player to two 10-day contracts in one season (they may or may not be consecutive). After the second 10-day contract, the team can only retain the player by signing him for the remainder of the season".

    We've already past the date after which teams can begin to offer ten-day contracts, and I don't think there's an end-date. Just depends if a team has roster spots or has chosen to extend one of these players.

    So, yes Uzoh could be signed for another 10-days, and then the Cavs would have to decide on whether to keep him for the whole season if they wanted him for longer.

    I could see the Lakers trying to hold onto one of their first round picks if they are also looking to make the deal for Michael Beasley. I think if you are trying to get both from LAL, I think you're gonna have to take 2 of the following 3 players back: Artest, Blake, and Walton. The Lakers are currently paying $17.5M in tax. Would they give up an additional first round pick if it mean shedding $5-6M (which really counts as $10-12M due to the tax)?

    I'd consider Sessions and the Cleveland 2nd round pick for Blake, Walton, and both the Dallas and Lakers first rounder. I'd even be okay with the Lakers lottery protecting it. Because the Cavs have the cap space they can do things like that. It is going to depend on what the Cavs are looking to do in free agency.

    Taking on 2 of those contracts (Blake, Walton) to add a mid 20s pick is reeeeaaaally expensive. Walton is making ~$9mil over the rest of this year and next season, and he's absolutely worthless. Blake is making $12 over 3 years and could be a passable backup, but that's a hefty price to pay for a very mediocre pick. Probably not worth it from a financial standpoint.
