Ramon Sessions Traded To Lakers For Luke Walton, 2012 First Round Pick, According to Report

UPDATE: Luke Walton Sent To Cleveland As Part Of Sessions Deal

According to reports from ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarwoski the Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to send their 2012 first round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers for point guard Ramon Sessions, a move that helps them boost their talent at the point guard position; something the Lake Show has had their eye on for some time.

Sessions, the 4th year guard out of the University of Nevada is averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists per game in 2012 thus far, netting around 24.5 minutes on the floor.

The Lakers may soon be dealing Steve Blake back to the Portland Trailblazers as part of a three team deal, but even if they hang on to him Session will be a big help athleticlly when it comes to the PG position, especially on the defensive end as Derek Fisher has slowed considerably with age. Sessions now jumps from a 16-25 Cavs team to a Laker squad ripe for another playoff berth, not too shabby for him either.

Now let's see what other moves the Lake Show may have up their sleeves.
