CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Charlotte Bobcats have signed free
agent point guard Ramon Sessions from the Los Angeles Lakers.
Sessions had agreed to a two-year contract after opting out of his contract with the Lakers, but made it official Friday.
He replaces D.J. Augustine, who signed with the Indianapolis Pacers shortly after the Bobcats rescinded their qualifying offer to him.
A five-year NBA veteran, the 6-foot-3 Sessions has played in 323
career games with the Bucks, Timberwolves, Cavaliers and Lakers,
averaging 11.1 points, 5.0 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 25.4 minutes.
Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says Sessions "is a quality point guard who can both distribute and score," and that the Bobcats are "excited to be adding a player of his caliber and ability."
Sessions played three years at the University of Nevada.
