With all the Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Jeremy Lin, and Raymond Felton talk we've kinda limited our options. Yea, those are the most realistic options according to reports. If reports report actual realistic options that is. I don't see Nash coming here for less than what he would get in Toronto, or Phoenix. Jason Kidd is going to follow Deron Williams and back him up. Raymond Felton is going to cry while he's taken to a flashback of when the Knicks traded him in a deal for Carmelo Anthony. It's okay Felton, it's okay.
The only realistic option I see there is Jeremy Lin. Yet, reporters say the Knicks might make him walk. What?
So with that logic I guess we'll take a look at another point guard I have been interested in.
Meet Ramon, we haven't been linked to him in anyway other than through fanposts and comments on here. But there was interest shown back in February. Not sure why there hasn't been interest shown publicly this time around when it would cost no players of our own to get a deal done.
Anyway, Sessions played for the Cleveland Cavaliers before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers. In 64 games played, Sessions shot .428% from the field, but made a lot of nice passes. He had only 5.5 apg, but that was in 26.7 minutes played. If you look at his per 36 stats, Sessions apg increases to 7.5.
In his time on the court Sessions provided both offensive, and defensive help. Something that Woodson wants in a player is the ability to play defense. Ramon Sessions had a 0.8 DWS in 2012. Meaning that he would have definitely hit 1.0 DWS if the season was 82 games long. Barring injury of course.
Here are some highlights of Ramon doing unselfish things.

Overall, Sessions is a great distributor of the ball, who can score when he needs to, and can play some defense. He's a Mike Woodson player for sure. I'd like to pair him up with Jeremy Lin, creating a nice point guard duo for the Knicks.
