The NBA trade deadline is at 3:00 pm on Thursday, and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been a hot trading partner for many teams looking to add a piece, in particular, a point guard. The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly in hot pursuit of Cavs point guard Ramon Sessions. The Cavaliers have been holding the line, requesting a first-round pick in return for sessions. But the Akron Beacon Journal's Jason Lloyd reports that Sessions will be dealt today, perhaps even if the first rounder is not a part of the package.
#Cavs keeping quiet, but I've been told Ramon Sessions will be moved today. Not sure yet if they'll get the 1st rd pick they've been seeking— Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) March 15, 2012
More from Lloyd on a potential Sessions deal:
Sessions is a secondary deal right now for a team like the Lakers, who are more concerned with completing Beasley deal first. Once that's done, and all indications are it will get done, they'll see what assets are left for Sessions. Whether it's the Lakers or elsewhere, I've been told the #Cavs plan on moving Sessions by the deadline.
If Lloyd's sources are correct, it looks like the Sessions has played his last game for the Cavaliers this season.
