Mike (Tampa): Recently, it’s been rumored that Ramon Sessions is available. Earlier this year, reports suggested Joe Dumars was looking for an upgrade in the frontcourt and at the point. Sessions should absolutely be on the Pistons’ radar – do you think he might be? Langlois: I don’t have any specific knowledge of their interest in Sessions, or in an "upgrade" at point guard, Mike. I know that was widely reported when the season ended and, as such, came to be accepted as fact. I don’t get the sense that adding a point guard (other than re-signing Will Bynum) is the priority of the off-season, though Joe D did say in our Q&A this week that signing a pure point guard to be the No. 3 is under consideration. Sessions, of course, is better than a No. 3 – and is paid like it. Adding a player of Sessions’ caliber, logically, would be part of a move (or after a move) that thins out their own backcourt. Between Hamilton, Gordon, Stuckey, Bynum (presumably) and White, the Pistons already will have a lot of roster spots and resources tied up in their backcourt. I do know that the Pistons thought well of Sessions heading into the 2007 draft, when he went 57th – one spot ahead of where the Pistons took Sammy Mejia. Of course, that was the draft where the Pistons took both Rodney Stuckey and Arron Afflalo, so they might not have gone for another guard at that spot, but they went into that draft with Sessions high on their list of second-round possibilities. He did have one magical night against the Pistons in the 2008-09 season while playing for Milwaukee. It was strange that Minnesota signed him to a fairly significant contract last summer and then didn’t seem to have much use for him last season. It’ll be interesting to see where he lands. A trade seems inevitable with Minnesota now having signed Luke Ridnour.
