Ramon Sessions Will Opt Out Of Contract And Become Free Agent, According To Report

The Los Angeles Lakers apparently learned what seemed to be the inevitable on Tuesday morning: Ramon Sessions might return to the team, but not under his current contract.

Sessions was acquired by the Lakers in a mid-season trade and looked quite solid in their run to the NBA Playoffs, but the team knew they'd likely only get the remainder of this season from him when they agreed to the trade. Sessions had a $4.5 million option for next season, but has apparently decided that he can make more money on the open market.

The Lakers are likely still interested in Sessions' services, but only at the right price. And, since the vagabond point guard decided to opt out of his contract, he's likely entering this offseason looking to get paid.
