I think Sessions would be a mistake. I wouldn't mind putting in an amnesty claim on Haywood.

What about one or two years for Sessions?

One year would be fine. Two years, depends on what they are paying per year.

I would definitely take that. Not sure if Sessions would agree to a deal like that.

The Charlotte Bobcats have an agreement in principle to sign veteran point guard Ramon Sessions, an informed source told the Observer Thursday.

A contract signing is expected soon, as Sessions was traveling Thursday and unavailable to finish paperwork. The Observer first reported the Bobcats’ interest in signing Sessions Wednesday night.

Sessions, a native of Myrtle Beach, will be playing for his fifth NBA team. The 6-foot-3 point guard has averaged 11.1 points and five assists over his NBA career, shooting 45 percent from the field.

He finished out last season with the Los Angeles Lakers following a trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was originally drafted by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round in 2007. He’s also played for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Sessions has had the occasional spectacular game: He holds the Bucks record for assists in a game with 24 (along with 20 points and eight rebounds) in a 2008 game against the Chicago Bulls. He also scored 44 points in a 2008 game against the Detroit Pistons.

Sessions, who played college ball at Nevada, is known primarily for his driving ability; his jump shot is weaker by comparison. He figures to be a backup to second-year point guard Kemba Walker, offering a slightly taller alternative at the position.

The Bobcats have yet to resolve what to do with point guard D.J. Augustin, a restricted free agent. There’s been talk of a possible sign-and-trade involving Augustin going to the Indiana Pacers. But it’s also possible the Bobcats could rescind their $4 million qualifying offer to Augustin, making him an unrestricted free agent.

He'll be a good backup and it's good to have a local guy.

Breaking @bobcats News: The team has withdrawn its qualifying offer to D.J. Augustin. He is now an unrestricted free agent.

That sucks. I don't know why you wouldn't work out a trade. Even if you get a future second or something, it's better than nothing.

That is so stupid. I bet we could have gotten Hansbrough :(

I do as well, depending on chemistry and play calling, he should put up around 15/3/8. He plus a healthy Henderson driving and with Mullens popping out to the top of the key should be amazing and Bismack down low, we can finally run a pick and roll with a point guard that can see over his defender lol.

I like the fact that we're getting a bigger PG. I want to know the details of the contract though.

nice pick up with sessions, but letting dj walk i rather have atleast a 2nd round pick for him in a trade.
session will give us defensive presence on big guards. hope this will work.
bye dj....

I think he benefited a lot playing with the Lakers.
Definitely proved he's capable of being a starting guard in this league, nice pickup.
I wonder what effect this takes on Kemba's minute total being that Henderson should be the starting guard and Gordon was brought in to help boost the bench.

Kemba will be the starter and Sessions will come off of the bench.
