I like Sessions, could be a nice starter this year and a very good backup for Rondo next year.

Well, at least I do believe this more than whatever Blakely or Broussard reports.

I like Sessions. I think he would be a very good low priced replacement for Rondo for the rest of the season. I would happy to pursue him.

I think Sessions is probably too expensive to keep as a backup to Rondo long term because I don't think they'd be able to function alongside one another. Both are too limited as jump-shooters and need the ball in their hands to make use of their playmaking skills. So, if acquired, I think Danny would need to trade Sessions again in the summer to somebody else and find a cheaper alternative.

Band-aid fix, really.  I do not like it at all.

I'm okay with Band-aids as long as we only give up a tiny amount.

I'd think that if there's a move for Sessions it's because Ainge has a subsequent move planned where he can flip say Lee or Terry in another deal to land a bigger fish. Else, going after guys like Session make little sense to me.

I'd be OK with acquiring Sessions, as long as it's with additional assets and the return is Green. Cs can't trade Lee or Terry right now IMO, and can't trade Bass unless they get a big back a veteran big in return.

Something like:

We only have 2 SFs and we have 3 SGs.

Why do you think we can trade one of our SFs more than our SGs? Especially when Green ends up playing a lot of SG/PF anyways just to get him on the court.

Sessions is a really good player. I'd take him in a second. He needs somewhere to fit in...

What? Why would we trade Green for Session and other Bobcats terrible parts?

If we can get Sessions for like a second round pick im perfectly fine with that. But offer Green? Crazy talk.

Minutes and depth, basically. On the one hand, I don't see trading a backcourt player for another one, considering we only have 3 guards to begin with. Moving to SF, assuming we all believe this team will make the playoffs, Pierce is going to play 35-40 minutes a game -- Taylor (and Biyombo) could soak up the remaining 10. And my feeling on Green is if he's forced to play major minutes at PF in the 2013 playoffs (or ever, really), this team is 100% doomed.

Anyway, this is mainly just a vehicle / excuse to get Biyombo -- who I believe could be a sneaky good LeBron defender, at the very least in spurts. As I've said before, I think Charlotte is absolutely clueless on how to use the guy. He could really blossom in green.

I think Sessions is generally underrated, but it's hard to make sense of how the Cs would acquire him given their existing depth chart and contracts. Again, trading Lee or Terry for sessions straight up is pointless. I suppose you could send Lee with Melo for Sessions and Henderson, but that doesn't feel like a substantial upgrade.

1. We need a backup for PP, a better one than Taylor.

2. Jeff Green has shown solid ability to defend SGs lately

3. Miami and plenty of other teams go small frequently, we need an option to match that.

OK fair enough. But can we agree it does make sense to trade on of our existing guards for Sessions straight-up? It'd need to be a 2-for-1 with Henderson coming back for Lee, or the like.
