Ramon Sessions Wants Lucrative Deal With Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are quite happy with their trade for Ramon Sessions as he adds speed and agility to their point guard position. Sessions is delighted to be a member of this historic franchise, but he is looking to add a couple more zeros to his paycheck.

Sessions told the Los Angeles Times that he would like to remain with the Lakers for the long-term, but he would like to be paid a little more.

“I want to be here. I don’t know what that means or how that’s going to happen. It ain’t no secret. I’ll tell anybody that. I tell [Lakers General Manager] Mitch Kupchak. I tell my agent. I want to be here. Period. For a long time.”

However, Sessions will likely opt-out of his contract this season so that the Lakers can offer him money in the off-season. This is a smart business move by Sessions but time will tell how much more he will make. The Lakers already pay big bucks to Kobe, Gasol and Bynum, so it will be interesting to see how his contract will look if the Lakers sign him.
