Ramon Sessions Trade Rumors: Lakers Interested In Cavs PG, But Reportedly Waiting For Dwight Howard Saga To End

The Cleveland Cavaliers are interested in getting better in the future, meaning they'll look to swap any spare parts that aren't in the plans for the long-term. It seems the first of the players ready to be auctioned off is going to be combo-guard Ramon Sessions.

Sessions has shown spurts of potential throughout his NBA career, but he isn't really needed with Kyrie Irving scheduled to be the point guard for the franchise's foreseeable future. It makes sense, then, that ESPN's Marc Stein reports the Los Angeles Lakers are moving closer to trading for him.

The Lakers are indeed on the long list of teams interested in Cavs point guard Ramon Sessions, but sources say that Cleveland would expect at least one first-round draft pick from L.A. in exchange. Although the Lakers have their own first-round pick and Dallas' first-rounder in 2012, it's believed that L.A. prefers to hold off on using either of those picks or its $8.9 million trade exception (created by the deal that sent Lamar Odom to the Mavs) until Dwight Howard's situation plays out in Orlando. Meaning that the Lakers don't want to burn one (or more) of their limited trade assets and then find out that Orlando is suddenly ready to deal Dwight before the March 15 trading deadline.

If the Cavs have to wait for the Dwight Howard saga to play out, in might be awhile until something happens with this situation.
