The rumors on Ramon Sessions have been going on for a while, ever since Luke Ridnour’s name was linked to the Wolves. And now it seems that newly acquired big-man Kosta Koufos is also in the mix. Koufos joined the Wolves as part of the Al Jefferson deal.
The rumors seem to be pointing to Cleavland as the likely bidder. The report was by Chris Tomasson from FanHouse.com.
… sources confirmed a Cleveland Plain Dealer report that Minnesota is shopping guard Ramon Sessions (due $3.96 million next season) and forward Kosta Koufos (due $1.3 million), and the Cavaliers have interest in both. Sources said a deal with Cleveland could result in guard Delonte West going to the Timberwolves and then being waived since West’s $4.6 million contract has only $500,000 of it guaranteed if he’s waived by August 5.
If the Wolves have been shopping Session around, it would make the Ridnour make sense. Instead of having two younger guards on the roster in Session and Jonny Flynn, why not bring in a veteran how is comfortable with what he can do. This would seem less threatening to Ricky Rubio.
If West is the player that comes over, it sounds like he will not last long and probably resign with the Cavs – or another team. More cap space for next season I guess.
