The Knicks officially announced the signing of Ramon Sessions on Tuesday.
Sessions could realistically open the 2017-18 season as New York's starting point guard, but he'll likely cede that starting spot to Frank Ntilikina towards the second half of the year when player development becomes a primary focus for the Knicks. Aug 8 - 6:33 PM

Ramon Sessions and the Knicks have agreed on a one-year, $2.3 million deal, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

There's a decent chance he starts for the Knicks. Frank Ntilikina is a serious project and the Knicks likely don't want to start Ron Baker despite his contract. Sessions has been very durable in his NBA career and his claim to fame is his 83-game season in 2013-14, so he could actually be a name to watch in fantasy.

The Knicks may consider signing Ramon Sessions.

New York desperately needs to add a point guard or will risk entering the 2017-18 season with Ron Baker as their starting PG. Sessions is coming off a disappointing season in which he averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 assists, while shooting just 38.0 percent from the floor, before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in February. The Knicks can only offer the veteran's minimum, but Sessions may not receive a better offer. He actually might have some fantasy value in deeper leagues if he landed a starting gig in New York.
Jul 13 - 10:22 AM

The Hornets will decline Ramon Sessions' $6.3M contract option for the 2017-18 season, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

Sessions will likely have to settle for something closer to the veteran's minimum in order to keep playing, and he's hitting free agency at the wrong time in a flooded point guard market. There is no fantasy relevance to be found here regardless of where Sessions makes his next home.
Jun 29 - 6:40 PM

The Hornets aren't expected to exercise Ramon Sessions' team option for 2017-18.

Thursday is the deadline, but Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer said the Hornets won't pick up his $6.3 million option "barring an extreme change in circumstance." Hornets GM Rich Cho has said many times that he wants to address the backup PG this spot this offseason, so this shouldn't be a surprise. If the Hornets aren't able to bring in a quality backup behind Kemba Walker, we could see Malik Monk play some PG during his rookie season -- the Hornets are going to experiment with him there during the Summer League.

Hornets GM Rich Cho said the team will likely address their backup PG spot this summer.

In short, don't expect the Hornets pick up Sessions' player option for $6.2 million next season. Sessions had a brutal year for the Hornets, averaging 6.2 points, 2.6 assists and 1.5 rebounds on 38.0 percent shooting. He just turned 31 years old and had knee surgery back in February, so the demand for Sessions as a free agent probably won't be too high.
Apr 13 - 11:33 AM

Ramon Sessions (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Sessions was cleared to play on March 24, but he never actually made his way back to the court. With both Sessions and Kemba Walker (knee) unavailable for the Hornet's regular-season finale, Brian Roberts and Briante Weber will split the point guard minutes in Charlotte.
Apr 11 - 6:23 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) has been cleared to play, but will not on Friday.

He is way past his original timeline and it's more about Briante Weber being ahead of him right now. Sessions could get minutes at some point, but he's not a fantasy option.
Mar 24 - 5:52 PM

Ramon Sessions underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair his torn left meniscus, and his timetable has been set at 4-6 weeks.

Sessions was only averaging 16.2 minutes per game as Kemba Walker's primary backup this season, and most those minutes will now fall to Brian Roberts with 10-day contract signee Ray McCallum picking up the scraps. There isn't an add here in most settings.
Feb 8 - 12:50 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) will undergo surgery on his torn left meniscus and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

He was hoping to avoid surgery, so this is a tough break for Sessions and the Hornets. Based on this timetable, we won't see him back on the court until March at the earliest. Sessions didn't have much fantasy value as the backup PG behind Kemba Walker with averages of 6.2 points and 2.6 assists in 16.2 minutes per game. Brian Roberts will pick up Sessions' minutes, but Ray McCallum could be involved as well. There are no fantasy pickups here.
Feb 6 - 6:29 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) described his injury as a "small tear."

"It’s not automatic surgery," Sessions said. "From what the doctor in Utah saw, it wasn’t the worst tear. It was a little tear. Surgery or not, we don’t know. But it already feels better than it did the first night." Sessions has never had surgery in his 10-year NBA career, but he will learn his fate when the Hornets re-evaluate him on Sunday afternoon. If he misses time, Brian Roberts will pick up the backup minutes behind Kemba Walker.
Feb 5 - 9:17 AM

Ramon Sessions (knee) said it isn't automatic he will need surgery on his torn meniscus.

In other words, there's only an outside chance he won't need surgery. If he does get the surgery, previous instances have timetables of about 6-8 weeks for a lateral meniscus. We will see Brain Roberts and Ray McCallum compete for the backup PG minutes.
Feb 4 - 5:52 PM

Ramon Sessions (left knee) has a lateral meniscus tear and has no timetable to return.

He will be re-evaluated in Charlotte and the Hornets will update him after that. The degree of the tear isn't known, but Sessions is almost certainly out through the All-Star break. The recently-signed Ray McCallum should back up Kemba Walker (illness), who is also questionable for Saturday against the Jazz.
Feb 3 - 7:09 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) is unlikely to play on Saturday against the Jazz.

He is dealing with some knee soreness right now, and the Hornets signing Ray McCallum to a 10-day deal doesn't bode well for Sessions. Kemba Walker (illness) is also questionable for this game, so McCallum could get big minutes.
Feb 3 - 4:55 PM

Ramon Sessions is dealing with a sore knee and is uncertain to play on Saturday in Utah.

The Hornets are in some trouble with Kemba Walker (illness) questionable to play. They did sign Ray McCallum to a 10-day, so that makes sense now with Sessions dealing with this injury. Sessions hasn't had a knee issue since 2014, so this is something new for him. Ray McCallum is only an add in super deep leagues.
