NBA Trade Rumors: Could Ramon Sessions Return To Timberwolves?

There really aren't many NBA trade rumors left to be discussed for the Minnesota Timberwolves, in part because they've been involved in almost everything already and partially because Luke Ridnour is no longer expendable following the Ricky Rubio injury. Another name was brought up on Monday, though it isn't exactly a new name.

The Timberwolves were mentioned as a potential destination for Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Ramon Sessions in an article in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The name will be familiar to Wolves fans, of course, because Minnesota actually traded Sessions to the Cavs in 2010 as part of the trade that brought Sebastian Telfair and Delonte West to the Wolves.

The Los Angeles Lakers and Atlanta Hawks are two teams rumored to have interest in Sessions. The Minnesota Timberwolves, fighting for a Western Conference playoff spot, might also be calling the Cavaliers after the season-ending knee injury to point guard Ricky Rubio.

Sessions is averaging 10.6 points and 5.1 assists as rookie Kyrie Irving's backup in Cleveland while shooting better from beyond the arc than he has in his entire career. It wouldn't be a bad thing to add him to the backcourt considering his versatility, but his asking price would likely be more than what the Wolves should give up for a backup guard at this point in the season.
