Lakers Rumors: L.A. Hopes To Bring Back Ramon Sessions, Also Looking At Veteran Point Guards

The Los Angeles Lakers are hoping to bring unrestricted free agent Ramon Sessions back to the team, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPN L.A., but will also contact veteran free agents in an effort to have a point guard in hand should Sessions go elsewhere. The veteran free agents that the Lakers may pursue include Chauncey Billups, Jameer Nelson and Kirk Hinrich.

Sessions' agent told McMenamin that several other teams reached out to the point guard, but that no meetings are currently scheduled. The Lakers traded for Sessions in March, sending a first-round pick and Luke Walton to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Sessions trade also led to Lakers legend Derek Fisher being traded and winding up with the Oklahoma City Thunder, who knocked L.A. out of the playoffs.

Sessions will be looking for more than $4.5 million in free agency. He opted out of a contract that would have paid him that much next season.
