The Cavaliers have acquired 24-year old point guard Ramon Sessions, 25-year old center Ryan Hollins and a 2nd round pick in 2013 for 27-year old shooting guard Delonte West and 25-year old point guard Sebastian Telfair. Sessions was the key to the deal for the Cavs as he is a physical, pass-first point guard. He played in 82 games (1 start) for the T-Wolves last season and he averaged 21.1 minutes, 8.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. Sessions has now played in 178 games (47 starts) in his three years in the NBA and he is averaging 24.5 minutes, 10.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game. Ryan Hollins is a big guy at 7’0″, 230 pounds but he has a lot to learn yet in the NBA. He played in 73 games (27 starts) for the T-Wolves last season and he averaged 16.8 minutes, 6.1 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game. Hollins has now played in 205 games (31 starts) in his four years in the NBA and he has averaged 11.6 minutes, 3.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game.
Delonte West is now more famous for having fun with Prince James’ momma than his basketball ability. West played in 60 games (3 starts) for the Cavs last season and he averaged 25.0 minutes, 8.8 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. He played in 150 games (93 starts) in his three years with the Cavs and he averaged 29.7 minutes, 10.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Sebastian Telfair played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Cavs last season and he averaged 19.3 minutes, 9.8 points, 1.0 rebound and 3.0 assists per game.
I like this deal for the Cavaliers but I think it might foreshadow a trade of Mo Williams with the idea of Sessions replacing him in the starting lineup rather than backing him up at the point.
