Charlotte Hornets interested in Ramon Sessions

The Hornets suffered a big blow to their playoff hopes recently as it was announced that Kemba Walker had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee and is expected to miss six weeks.  Charlotte is currently 19-26 and occupying the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference race.

So where do the Kings fit into all this?  Well apparently Kings backup guard Ramon Sessions is one of the players that Charlotte is targeting to help at the PG position while Walker is out, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.  Sessions is well known to the Hornets front office as he played there during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons before being traded to Milwaukee.

Sessions has been having a terrible year in Sacramento, and given that he's under contract for 2015-16 as well, I wouldn't be surprised if the Kings were willing to ship him to Charlotte for the mere price of expiring contracts.  They could also combine Sessions with someone like Reggie Evans to get a player like Gary Neal that could potentially help out with some of Sacramento's weaknesses while also adding another roster spot.

Whatever the case, if Sessions is attracting interest on the free agent market, I expect that Sacramento will be actively looking at those options given how poorly he has fit in with the Kings.  Whether anything gets done or not, who knows, but the trade deadline (Feb. 19th) will be here sooner than you think.
