Tulsa's Ramon Sessions, on assignment from the Milwaukee Bucks, is the first D-League Performer of the Week for the 2007-08 season.
The first NBA player to be assigned to the D-League in 2007-08, Sessions led the Tulsa 66ers to a 2-0 start over the opening weekend of the season. Sessions scored 27 points with nine rebounds and four assists, all team-highs, in Tulsa's 94-86 victory over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Friday night. He returned on Saturday with a 34-point, six rebound, six assist performance in Tulsa's 117-109 win over the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He is currently second in the league with a 30.5 point scoring average and also ranks among the league leaders with 7.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists.
Sessions was the 56th overall selection in the 2007 NBA Draft out of Nevada. He earned second-team All-WAC honors during his junior season with the Wolf Pack. He joins the Pistons' Amir Johnson and the Mavericks' Jose Barea as NBA assigned players to win Performer of the Week during their time in the D-League.
