Ramon Sessions Opts Out of Contract With Lakers to Become a Free Agent
Ramon Sessions freely admitted having a hard time handling the pressure of being a Laker.
So I can’t say I am surprised he is deciding to take his talents somewhere besides Hollywood.
Point guard Ramon Sessions will not exercise a player option to stay with the Lakers and will become a free agent, The Times has learned.
Sessions would have earned $4.55 million next season but chose to test the market. There’s still a chance that Sessions will return to the Lakers by signing a contract, but there’s no guarantee of it.
“Ramon has carefully considered this decision,” said Sessions’ agent, Jared Karnes. “He had to make a career decision and ultimately decided to do what was best in providing stability and longevity for him in the NBA, and this could only be achieved through a multi-year contract.”
I doubt he will be back, so the Lakers once again will be searching for point guard.
