NBA Free Agency: Bobcats Sign Ramon Sessions, According To Report

The Charlotte Bobcats have come to terms with free agent point guard Ramon Sessions on a two-year deal, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The journeyman was traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Los Angeles Lakers at last season's trade deadline, as L.A. looked for an external solution to fill its void at the point. Initial reports indicated the Lakers were hoping to re-sign Sessions, but the eventual sign-and-trade that Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak was able to work out for Steve Nash obviously re-arranged the team's priorities.

With the Lakers moving forward, Spears reported on Thursday that the Bobcats and Sessions were closing in on a deal. The terms were reportedly finalized Thursday evening, with the result being a two-year agreement:

Sessions will join second-year point guard Kemba Walker as Charlotte's primary ballhandlers in Mike Dunlap's first year as the Bobcats' coach. As expected, Charlotte parted ways with point guard D.J. Augustin on Thursday, withdrawing their qualifying offer which allowed him to sign with the Pacers.
