Report: Rockets interested in acquiring guard Ramon Sessions

Monday August 25th, 2014

The Houston Rockets are interested in adding former Milwaukee Bucks point guard Ramon Sessions, possibly in a sign-and-trade, according to a report from Basketball Insiders' Alex Kennedy

Last season, Sessions averaged 12.3 points and 4.1 assists per game on 42.9 percent shooting. The Bucks acquired Sessions and forward Jeff Adrien in a February trade that sent guards Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour to the Charlotte Bobcats. Adrien signed with the Rockets as a free agent earlier this offseason.

Houston traded point guard Jeremy Lin to the Lakers earlier this offseason in a cap space-clearing move, leaving the team without an experienced backup to starter Patrick Beverley.

The Rockets have journeyman Ish Smith, rookie Nick Johnson, and D-League All-Star Isaiah Canaan on the roster as reserve point guards. 

Houston currently has 18 players on its roster, and can only carry 15 into the season.
