Friday July 6th, 2012

With Jason Kidd surprising the Dallas Mavericks by deciding to join the New York Knicks on a deal similar to the one Dallas offered, the Mavericks have turned their attention to free agent Ramon Sessions, late of the Los Angeles Lakers.

A source tells Jeff Caplan of ESPNDallas.com that team officials reached out to Sessions a second time following Kidd's decision, this time with a starting job to pitch. The source said that Sessions is searching for a starting job and long-term security. The two sides are scheduled to talk on Friday.
