Lakers Rumors: Lakers Unwilling to Part with Draft Pick for Ramon Sessions

It appears that yet another trade proposal has been shot down by the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times, the Lakers were close to acquiring up-and-coming point guard Ramon Sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers, but were unwilling to part with the first-round draft pick received from the Dallas Mavericks in the Lamar Odom trade earlier this season .

This is the second of two proposed deals that the Lakers have declined heading towards the March 15 NBA trade deadline. The first was the Minnesota Timberwolves offer to send small forward Michael Beasley to Los Angeles in exchange for two first-round draft picks.

This move continues to make Lakers fans in L.A. scratch their heads as adding Sessions to the extremely weak backcourt would’ve been a step in the right direction. Not only would the Lakers improve at the point guad position, but all they’d have to part with is one of the two first-round draft picks they already have.

At 25-years-old, Sessions is the ideal candidate to come in and bring some life to the point guard position alongside Kobe Bryant. Despite improving with every minute on the floor for the Cavs, Sessions is playing behind Rookie of the Year frontrunner Kyrie Irving this season and would probably love the opportunity to start for the Lakers if traded.

In 33 games played this season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Ramon Sessions is averaging 10.3 points, 5.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game.

    Lakers wanna go big or go home
     
    Ramon Sessions is just #NotGoodEnough

    Sessions adds another $4 million for not only this season but next season since it is a player option.  Can’t add more to the cap.  Also draft picks may be used in trades for the bigger prize (Howard, D-Will, Rajon, etc.).  Beasley is a bigger cap monster at $6 and $8 million.  He is not a championship caliber PF and he is too much of a gunner with a team that has Kobe, Pau and Bynum. I do hope there is a bigger prize down the road.

    Doesn’t bother me even though it would have been really cool to add him. Why does it not bother me as a Lakers fan……ever since Stern exploded our new player CHRIS PAUL I really havent cared too much anymore. That trade would have made it very likely Howard would have come and well there is no way we can even sniff what that team would have been like. I like Sessions but I dont care what the Lakers do anymore thanx to stupid stern.

    I want to believe that the Lakers are planning something bigger and are waiting to see if they can make a bigger deal, before they pull off these smaller one’s. But everything Lakers reporters say is that the Lakers aren’t likely to make a big move. But rather are expected to make just a small move by trading for a guy like session,  but if they refused even him?, what the hell are the Lakers going to do then!?!?!!!!!.

    Lakers are saving their draft picks for next year… And maybe they can catch good players than what they supposed to have in the names of beasley and sessions… Its about time that lakers get 2 1st round picks… 

    • Salmon4Coach

      So Lakers are out of the playoffs this year then

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/FOSBNR4N35WWOC2AC3MYYXVGHE Nico

    pau, bynum, bryant, metta, barnes, blake, beasely, sheed, arenas, fisher, murphy, (either g-lock or mcbob)

    that is the 12 man roster we legitimately have if we accepted the beasely trade and signed sheed and arenas already. I think the reason they denied this trade was because they are going to sign gilbert and dont wanna stack him with blake, fisher (and possibly gilbert). just my opinion but that 12 man roster i listed is a hell of a team 

  • Salmon4Coach

    I guess lakers are out of the playoffs then. Wow.. i swear if Mitch trades for Kirk/Pierce/another old ass player..Ima commit suicide. Unbelievable. WHY NOT DO THIS IT’S PERFECT! Omg I can do so much better as a GM right now then this scrub as fool we have. Any one can actually. FIRE MITCH! He like Tony Regains! FIRE MITCH!

  • Salmon4Coach

    Better trade for D-Will or Rondo then..2 draft picks for Rondo lets go!

  • Tristen Chance

    Trade:
    Cavaliers get: morris and 1st round pick

    Lakers get: Sessions and Howard

    Magic get: Bynum and walton

    its a work able trade and Lakers win 10 more games than projected
    well one can dream anyway…………….

    Beasley sounds like a knucklehead that’s why Miami, now Minnesota wants to dump him. The knock on him is that he doesn’t play team ball and is just a scorer. As  far as Sessions is concerned, I agree with the one of the previous comments that he is just average and is not the future. How much of an improvement is he over Blake? I understand that Sessions is not a good shooter. The Lakers need a all star guard like Derron Williams or Kyle Lowry. They should keep both Gasol and Bynum and just add a point guard.

      No way to get D-Will or Lowry without giving up Pau/Bynum
