The Knicks have found their veteran point guard in Ramon Sessions, who agreed to a one-year $2.33 million deal, his agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told ZAGSBLOG.
The news was first reported by The Vertical.
Sessions averaged 6.2 points and 2.6 assists last year in Charlotte. He has averaged 10.6 points and 4.1 assists across 10 NBA seasons.
Sessions will serve as a mentor to rookie Frank Ntilikina, the No. 8 pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
“I’m excited about young Frank but we’ll need some veteran guidance,” Knicks GM Scott Perry said July 17. “You definitely want to bolster that position. It’s important to have a veteran alongside of him. Whoever that will be, we’ll find out in the coming weeks.”
