The Knicks have signed PG Ramon Sessions to a one-year deal worth $2.3 million, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical.
Sessions, 31, averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 assists in 50 games last season for the Hornets.
He has averaged 10.6 points and 4.1 assists per game during his 10-year career with the Bucks, Timberwolves, Cavaliers, Kings, Wizards, and Hornets.
Sessions made $6 million last season with the Hornets.

Ramon Sessions is a nice addition for the minimum for a Knicks team with a young backcourt. At 31, 10 seasons under his belt, with all of them as a bench player, he knows what his role will be.
Sessions will be able to mentor Frank Ntilikina and Ron Baker at point guard, along with some of the other young guys on the roster.
This isn't a flashy move, but it's a solid signing by Scott Perry and Steve Mills. The question is whether this will have an effect on the Knicks trading for Kyrie Irving. I don't think it has an impact. If they do trade for Irving, they can now include Ntilikina because they would have Sessions and Baker.
The Knicks aren't exactly star-studded at the point guard position, but now have three of them on the roster they can mix and match with. Expect Sessions to play somewhere around 20 minutes a game and help grow the 19-year-old French guard.
