The point guard position has been the bane of the Los Angeles Lakers' existence for some time now. Other point guards relish the opportunity to go up against the combination of Steve Blake and Derek Fisher. So the Lakers have looked for an upgrade and may have found one if they are willing to pull the trigger.
This is what Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD had to say.
"The Lakers have been linked to Ramon Sessions for weeks and they continue to express significant interest in the Cleveland Cavaliers' point guard. While other teams have called about Sessions, the Lakers are believed to be the frontrunner to acquire his services, if they decide to pull the trigger on a deal."
Sessions is a good pick-and-roll point guard and a definite upgrade over the Blake-Fisher combination. Fisher is a tailor-made backup point guard at this point in his career so the deal would benefit all parties.
The Portland Trail Blazers' Raymond Felton and the Houston Rockets' Kyle Lowry have also been linked to the Lakers.
