UPDATE (9/4/09): Well, as I wrote below yesterday, there was a chance that a third team would come along and snatch up Ramon Sessions. Looks like it might be the T-Wolves, who are attempting to save face from the embarrassing and amateurish Ricky Rubio fiasco by sticking it to the Knicks once again after completely ruining their draft.
(Thanks to Auggie for the heads up.)
With all but the most deranged and disturbingly obsessed fanboys accepting that Ricky Rubio is staying in Spain for at least the next 2 years, the focus for the New York media and fans can shift back to Ramon Sessions, who has most likely been the Knicks’ target at point guard since Jason Kidd spurned them.
The news out of Los Angeles is that the Clippers have offered Carlos Arroyo a contract to shore up a point guard corps that includes Baron Davis, Sebastian Telfair, and Mardy Collins. The Clippers were the only other team aside from the Knicks rumored to be interested in the Bucks’ restricted free agent.
Unless some other team surprisingly offers Sessions a deal it looks like his options are limited to the Bucks qualifying offer (which would leave him a restricted free agent again next summer, since he has less than 4 years of service in the NBA), and whatever the Knicks want to offer him to be their starter and point guard of the future.
