With no apparent sit downs planned, the Knicks may move on as Donnie Walsh isn't prepared to dig too far deep into the 2010 budget for Sessions. We should have seen this coming, I mean if he's not doing it for David Lee or Nate Robinson, why would he do it for another player who isn't a proven winner and who also has limitations?
But my question is why wouldn't Sessions agree to a significant payraise for this year and less for next? Why wouldn't he want a guaranteed starting spot with the Knicks, without blocking a path for a major free agent next year? I mean the guy was in the D League two years ago. To be fair, I guess I could say the same for Lee.
Whatever the case for Sessions, it appears clear that there are no trades on the horizon as it was reported that was a roadblock hindering a Sessions addition. Moreover, if Washington does still have a crush on Jared Jeffries, which we've heard so much about, without Sessions in the fold wouldn't it make sense for Walsh to pull the trigger on a Jeffries for Mike James deal?
Maybe that could go down during the year, which is an important point to remember. Walsh did make deals in November last year, completely out of nowhere. So Sessions may be out of the picture for now, but there's still plenty of time to make changes, the changes fans are craving.
