With rumors aplenty swirling around the Los Angeles Lakers following their untimely exit in the second round of the NBA playoffs, there are more questions than answers surrounding the team’s roster heading into the off-season.
One of these questions is point guard Ramon Sessions, who was acquired by the Lakers on the trade deadline for Luke Walton, Jason Kapono and the Lakers’ draft pick. Sessions, who has the option to opt out of his current contract and test the free agent waters.
Sessions has mentioned his desire to return to the Lakers next season, and the organization is reportedly interested in bringing him back, too. But now, according to HoopsWorld’s Larry Coon, the team might not be focusing on Sessions in the off-season.
Sessions has an option. Latest I’m hearing is that they’d be fine if he opted-out, and likely wouldn’t break a sweat trying to keep him.
If Los Angeles doesn’t bring Sessions back, they will certainly have to bring someone else in to help Steve Blake handle the point guard duties.
Sessions can officially opt out of his contract on July 1.
