Ramon Sessions played just 11 minutes off the bench against the Grizzlies on Thursday with five points, two rebounds, and one turnover.
He scored 18 points in his start against the Mavericks on Tuesday, but took a backseat tonight. Sessions obviously has very little value while Darren Collison is healthy. Nov 14 - 12:17 AM

Ramon Sessions performed admirably in a fill-in start for Darren Collison (shoulder) on Tuesday, scoring 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting with two 3-pointers and three rebounds.

Sessions logged 36 minutes and this was easily his best game of the young season, but he's only useful as a plug-and-play option. Collison is day-to-day and warmed up prior to Tuesday's game, so there's a good chance he'll be back in the lineup on Thursday. Owners in deep leagues should note that rookie Ray McCallum only had three points in 12 minutes despite Collison's absence.

Ramon Sessions will draw the start for Tuesday's game with Darren Collison (shoulder) listed as out.

Collison is just dealing with some shoulder stiffness, so this is just a temporary move. While Sessions makes for a decent plug-and-play option, owners in standard leagues should probably look the other way. Collison should be considered day-to-day for now. We also may get an extended look at Ray McCallum off of the bench on Tuesday.

Ramon Sessions hit just 1-of-6 shots but 10-of-10 from the foul line to finish with 13 points in 21 minutes off the bench on Monday.

The Nuggets kept putting him on the foul line in a game with unending whistles, but otherwise it was another lackluster night. Perhaps there isn't enough spacing on the floor for his penetrating style, but he needs to do better or Ray McCallum is going to get a hard look at backup PG.

Ramon Sessions went scoreless in nine minutes off the Kings' bench on Sunday, missing two shot attempts without any rebounds, assists or steals.

The Kings experimented with three-guard lineups for much of the preseason, but coach Mike Malone has abandoned that idea during the regular season. Sessions is now averaging 1.7 points in 9.7 minutes per game as Darren Collison's backup, and there's no reason to own him in any leagues.

Ramon Sessions kept his strong preseason going on Saturday with 11 points, two rebounds, six assists, one steal and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

He shot 4-of-6 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. Sessions has kept his turnovers down and has been able to attack the rim for the Kings so far. Darren Collison played well with 12 points and three dimes tonight and should be favored to start, but Sessions could have value off the bench.
Oct 19 - 2:00 AM

Ramon Sessions hit 7-of-12 shots, and three 3-pointers, on his way to 18 points, three rebounds, four assists, two turnovers, and one steal.

Sessions looked great in this one, and the 3-point shooting was nice. He lead the Kings in scoring and minutes, but that's not a trend that's likely to continue into the regular season, as DeMarcus Cousins played just 14 minutes in this one. Sessions may challenge Darren Collison for the starting point guard spot, but he'll enter the season as a reserve off the bench. Sessions upside is pretty minimal, and he doesn't look like someone that should be targeted in standard leagues.

Kings veteran Ramon Sessions isn't worried about whether he starts at PG or comes off the bench this season.

Mike Malone is still tinkering with the starting PG, SG and PF jobs, and Sessions has a chance to overtake Darren Collison as the Kings' lead guard. Just keep in mind that Sessions' lack of 3-point shooting takes a chunk out of his fantasy value, and he's never returned top-100 fantasy value in his seven NBA seasons.
Oct 7 - 4:48 PM

The Kings have agreed to terms with Ramon Sessions on a two-year, $4.2 million deal.

He should have signed long ago and the Kings were somehow able to sign him and didn't spend too much with their bi-annual exception. He'll likely compete in a backup role with Ray McCallum, who didn't shoot the ball well despite his heavy dose of minutes late in the season. It also wouldn't be a shock to see Sessions unseat Darren Collison at some point. He's still not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to a lower upside and a lower usage rate next to Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. McCallum can be removed from your standard-league draft board while Collison has some added risk in the later rounds.

Several teams are interested in Ramon Sessions and he could be closing in on a deal, according to Basketball Insiders.

The Rockets had previously shown interest in the 28-year-old, but seem to have moved on by acquiring Jason Terry via trade. Sessions averaged 12.3 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 4.1 assists with the Bucks and Bobcats (now Hornets) during the 2013-14 season, but is more of a deep league fantasy option unless he can somehow find himself a starting job.

The Rockets are not interested in Bucks' guard Ramon Sessions.

Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen called the chances Sessions ends up in Houston "unlikely." News that the Rockets were trying to swing a sign-and-trade emerged Monday, but now it appears a chance of a swap is off the table. Sessions is a nice backup point guard, but should not be on fantasy radars until he has defined role on a team.

The Rockets are trying to acquire Ramon Sessions in a sign-and-trade with the Bucks.

It would be a terrific fit for the Rockets. Sessions is among the league leaders in drives per 48 minutes and the Rockets really need a backup point guard. He would likely come off the bench behind Pat Beverley while Sessions would hurt the chances of guys like Isaiah Canaan, Troy Daniels and Nick Johnson. This move would hurt Beverley's upside.

The Bulls are one of "a bunch of teams" who have reached out to unrestricted free agent Ramon Sessions.

Sessions is a 31.1 percent 3-point shooter for his career, but he has an uncanny ability to get in the paint and draw shooting fouls -- last season he averaged 6.6 free throw attempts per 36 minutes, converting 80.7 percent of those opportunities. The 28-year-old is best suited to a backup role and it makes sense that the Bulls would target him as an affordable backstop behind Derrick Rose.

Free agent Ramon Sessions said he'd welcome a return to Milwaukee.

Sessions is one of the few players in the league who actually embraces the dysfunction in Milwaukee. He was drafted there at No. 56 overall in 2007. "I want to stay loyal to them like they did to me," he said. We're not sure if the Bucks want Sessions back, but we do know he's still a fantasy asset whenever he's getting significant minutes. In 28 games for the Bucks this season, Sessions averaged 15.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds.
Apr 18 - 11:26 AM

Ramon Sessions hit 6-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 20 points and eight dimes in Saturday's loss.

He started at point guard for Brandon Knight (hip) and did what he's generally been doing even when Knight is healthy.
