Waiting For Next Year:
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms to exchange point guard Ramon Sessions for a 2012 first-round draft selection. Also included in the deal are Cleveland’s Christian Eyenga and Los Angeles’ Luke Walton, both players being forwards. The pick obtained by the Cavaliers will be protected within the top-14 selections.
Sessions had averaged 10.5 points and 5.2 assists for the Cavs this season. Eyenga had averaged 1.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in six games. Walton averaged 1.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in nine games this season and is slated to make $6.1 million in 2012-13.
As things currently stand, the Cavs will enter the 2012 draft with four selections, two first-rounders (including the Lakers’ pick) as well as their second-rounder and one obtained from the New Orleans Hornets, via Miami, included in the trade for LeBron James. In 2013, the Lakers obtain the right to swap with the Cavaliers’ first-round selection obtained from Miami in the same deal.
This deal is first reported by ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.
