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.
We're so thin that we need additional bodies one way or the other. A 2 for 1 would be ideal yes but given that we're going to be picking up someone no matter what I don't view it as a necessity. Sesssions is good enough to take a big role from any of our guards as the point.

I do think that we shouldn't move Lee unless we get another rotation caliber guard with some size. (Lee isn't big but he's the biggest we've got at the moment)

I like Sessions a lot really.  I think he is a good fit.  He is not great at any one thing, but he can do everything well.  And he is a bigger PG, which makes him fit well next to guys like Terry and Bradley.

I actually think Sessions for Lee would be an intriguing swap.  I think they are pretty equal value, but bring different things to the table.  And with Charlotte not interested in paying Henderson next year, they have a need for a SG, moreso than the C's who have Bradley and Terry.

Right. I think the 2 for 1.5 could make some sense -- Lee and Melo for Sessions and Henderson.

I still want my binkie Biyombo but will have to get over it.

Sessions is (perhaps) a better player than Lee though (or at least even), and Henderson is much better than Melo.
 
I think we would be lucky to get Sessions for Lee straight up.

Henderson is a FA this summer, which brings his value down a bit. And Charlotte could sure use some young bigs.

Charlotte has two young bigs who are much better prospects than Melo.  Biyombo and Mullens.  At this point, they would be looking for veteran bigs to help those guys grow, not more projects to add to them.

Meh.  Sessions doesn't do enough to make us significantly more competitive this season, and he's not an asset for the future.  He's a league journeyman.  Ideal backup PG, but that's about it.


I would be irritated to see the team give up any real assets for a player like that.

Fair point.....I dont think sessions is as good as Lee, but he could be a better fit, doubt it though considering our defense would be considerably worse.

I stand by the opinion he stinks and belongs on the Bobcats - not the celtics. Did you see how he performed with the Lakers? lol

He would be a good back up PG behind Rondo (Once he returns), but he is way overpaid as he got signed to a 2-year 10 million deal. No Thanks.

That's not overpaid for a quality backup.  That's what it costs.

Just for the record, we're offering Melo for Sessions.  We're also offering Melo for Jordan Crawford:

Perhaps as bidding fever tramps up for Melo, we can also get some first round picks for him...3:01PM EST can't come quick enough.

We need a big man before we need a 4th guard. If we're going to make a win-now move, I want a big man.
Pick 2 Team: Rockets (McHale)
PG M. Chalmers ($4 mil) SG J. Harden ($5.8 mil) SF W. Chandler ($5.9) PF Nene ($13) C S. Hawes ($6.5) 6th man: Ginobli ($14.1) 7th man: Marv Williams ($8.3) Enforcers: F. Ezeli ($1), C. Hayes ($5.5) Bench Marksman: A. Morrow ($4) Young Gun: R. Jackson ($1.2) Greybeard: P. Prigioni ($.5) Towel-Waver: Mike Scott ($.5)

I'm pro Delonte too, but it seems that he must be so far gone that nobody seemingly wants him on their team.  Too bad, because he played well enough on the court to be a borderline starter/solid rotation player and we could certainly use him.
