NBA Trade Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers Trade For Ramon Sessions From Cleveland Cavaliers

The Los Angeles Lakers have been looking to upgrade their point guard rotation ever since the NBA rejected a proposed trade for Chris Paul back in December. On Thursday just before the NBA’s 3 p.m. trade deadline they did just that.

The Lakers swung a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers to acquire Ramon Sessions in exchange for their first-round pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. The Cavs will also have the right to swap Miami’s first-round pick in 2013 (which they own) for Los Angeles’ if they so choose.

LA Lakers Trade For Ramon Sessions

The Lakers will absorb Sessions using the $8.9 million trade exception they received from the Dallas Mavericks in the Lamar Odom trade in December.

The 25-year-old Sessions is averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists for the Cavs. He fills a real need for the Lakers who have been searching for a true point guard.

Sessions is making $4.2 million this season and holds a player option for $4.5 million next year. He became expendable in Cleveland because of how well rookie Kyrie Irving has played.

Depending on how he plays over the next few weeks, the Lakers will probably be interested in working out a long-term deal.

UPDATE: As a previously unreported part of the deal, the Lakers will also send Jason Kapono and Luke Walton to the Cavs and receive young wing Christian Eyenga.
