NBA Trade Rumors: Lakers Interested In Ramon Sessions

For more on the Cleveland Cavaliers, go to Fear The Sword.

The Cleveland Cavaliers could be looking to trade away Ramon Sessions, or rather, an interested team could be looking to pry him away from them. Yahoo Sports! is reporting that the Los Angeles Lakers have showed interest in Sessions to boost their depleted backcourt. Nothing is imminent, but with the Lakers struggling to maintain the dominance they've held for so long, some knee-jerk moves could be made.

Sessions is a strong candidate, despite somewhat of a down season. He's struggling to get playing time behind rookie Kyrie Irving, and the Cavaliers are absolutely fine with that. He's shooting just 34 percent and averaging just 9.1 points per game. Most are of the strong opinion that Sessions needs a change of scenery, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a group of guys that are too much better than the Lakers for said change of scenery.

Los Angeles needs some help with Steve Blake injured, and the rookies Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris aren't able to handle the load they've been given. With Cleveland relying heavily on rookies that are performing much better, they're likely open to getting more draft picks to bolster an already young team.
