Sessions Will Decline Option; Become UFA?
(Ramon) Sessions is expected to decline a player option for $4.6 million next season and become an unrestricted free agent.
He said he didn’t want to move again, not with so much clarity in his basketball career. A return to the Lakers would seem logical if the sides worked out a multiyear deal.
“These fans really believe in me in this place and they really know basketball. They’ve seen the greatest of greats come through here,” he said. “It’s unreal. In my whole career, it’s never been like this, being noticed. You’re on ESPN every night or TNT. You’re with Kobe Bryant out there in the backcourt.
“I want to be here. I don’t know what that means or how that’s going to happen. It ain’t no secret. I’ll tell anybody that. I tell [Lakers General Manager] Mitch Kupchak. I tell my agent. I want to be here. Period. For a long time.”
