Veteran minimum!

The Knicks may have just found their veteran mentor/caddy for Frank Ntilikina. Per Shams Charania, 31-year-old free agent Ramon Sessions will sign with New York on a veteran minimum deal.

Sessions has averaged 10.6 points, 4.1 assists and 23.7 minutes per game over his 10-year NBA career. The Knicks will become his ninth NBA franchise, assuming you separate his stints with the Charlotte Bobcats (2012-2014) and Hornets (last season).

Sessions is an extremely solid pickup—a player who has generally remained solid despite a nomadic career. He also passes the ball, which is a big step up from the Knicks’ usual point guard:

On the down side, Sessions missed the last 32 games of the 2016-17 season with a torn meniscus. Those injures aren’t as severe as the Achilles tear which felled Brandon Jennings a few years back, but it remains a concern.

Still...one-year minimum, baby! If healthy, Sessions will get Kristaps Porzingis the ball, and Frank will learn from a veteran who actually displays an interest in getting Kristaps the ball. That sure as hell sounds like fun.

Ramon Sessions is a Knick...better late than never, am I right, Marc Berman?
