Timberwolves looking to trade Sessions
After signing Ramon Sessions to a four-year, $16 million contract a year ago, Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn is trying to unload the guard to teams able to absorb his salary, league executives told Yahoo! Sports.
"They’re basically looking for a salary dump," said an executive with a team who spoke to Minnesota. "That won’t be easy."
Kahn’s plan this time?
Trying to sign point guard Luke Ridnour to an identical four-year, $16 million contract, league sources said.
Still, Ridenour has shown little interest with the T’wolves, sources said, and seems willing to wait for a more compelling offer. What’s unclear is how this would affect Minnesota with Jonny Flynn as the starting point guard and the rights to Spain’s Ricky Rubio, who could come to the NBA after the 2010-11 season.
Minnesota has also shown serious interest with free-agent point guard Shaun Livingston, sources said.
Everyone has been clamoring over Sessions for months (including myself). He's now available, it seems. Can we put together a deal that would get Minnesota what they want and us Sessions? Maybe involve a third team with cap space to take on Stuckey with a draft pick going to the T'Wolves? Get creative, people!
