Wizards get to the point with Sessions

Publish date:

With JohnWall sidelined, the Washington Wizards are doing just fine, thank you, their 110-103 victory in Cleveland on Wednesday night being just the latest evidence.

Washington (34-24), now only a half-game behind the Cavaliers (34-23) for third place in the Eastern Conference standings, is now 8-2 since Wall went down.

Still, though, coach ScottBrooks' squad could use some help in the backcourt while Wall recovers from knee surgery, so they are turning to a familiar face, according to a report.

Sessions, 31, played 31 games for the New York Knicks the season, averaging 3.7 points, 1.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 12.8 minutes per game. With two open roster spots, Washington will not need to make another move to add Sessions.

The 11-year NBA veteran is no stranger to the Wizards. He played 28 games for Washington in the 2014-15 season after beginning the campaign with Sacramento and played in all 82 games of the 2015-16 season for the Wizards.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound University of Nevada product carries career averages of 10.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 23.5 minutes per game.

Sessions is a career 43.5 percent shooter from the floor, 31.4 percent from 3 and 79.2 percent from the free-throw line.
