"It's starting to look as though Milwaukee restricted free agent Ramon Sessions might have to settle for an offer that does not start at the full midlevel exception price of $5.9 million, with sources insisting that the Knicks are no longer chasing Sessions and that Oklahoma City is reluctant to use any of its salary-cap space to pursue the point guard.
The Clippers remain highly interested in Sessions. There are persistent rumblings that they prefer him to Allen Iverson in every category apart from box-office appeal. The Bucks, meanwhile, remain prepared to match offers on Sessions … to a point.
We should learn soon how far the Clips are willing to go with an offer sheet. If Sessions proves unable to land an offer that starts in midlevel territory, Milwaukee will be much more of a threat to match, and that would spare the Bucks from asking too much of Brandon Jennings in his rookie season.
The Clips tried to initiate sign-and-trade talks with Milwaukee to land Sessions, but the Bucks maintain that they're not interested in L.A.'s newly acquired Sebastian Telfair."
Ok Clippers you are right. But Who are you trading in a sign and trade for Sessions?
im guessing they will sign him to an offer sheet for 5 years at the MLE and hope it does not get matched because milwaukee does not want telfair in a S&T deal. however, maybe they can offer the TPE for sessions and bowen.
The Bucks dont want the TLE. They want players or picks back...make me a realistic deal...
they want to trade bowen, that would do it and give them a big trade exception to use in the future to improve their team. TPE's are very valuable when they are that big.
trade exceptions end after 1 year. They dont want a TPE....they would want players and or picks. They lost Charlie V and now there gonna give you Sessions? Come on now.
they have brandon jennings. o and doesn't a trade for chris duhon end after 1 year since he would be a free agent. same thing.
yea but if the Knicks make a deal to get Sessions, we have better pieces to deal then the Clippers.
Also, the Knicks are looking at Miller now, but all my people I know that are close to NY and NBA people are saying if Miller gets taken, The Knicks will up the deal to add Sessions
