Getting Over LeBron: Cavaliers get Sessions from T-Wolves for West
The Cleveland Cavaliers completed their first post- LeBron James personnel move on Monday night, trading troubled guard Delonte West and point guard Sebastian Telfair to the Minnesota Timberwolves for point guard Ramon Sessions, 7-footer Ryan Hollins and a future second-round pick.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The wait is over.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have finally completed their first transaction in the post LeBron James era, sending Sebastian Telfair and Delonte West to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Ryan Hollins, Ramon Sessions, and a future second round draft pick.
After losing James on national television, the Cavaliers came close, but failed to sign Matt Barnes and Kyle Lowry.
They got their man in Sessions, a young combo guard who will fit Coach Byron Scott’s up-tempo system next to fellow combo guard Mo Williams.
Sessions, the Timberwolves’ big free agent signing last summer, became the odd man out when the club signed signed Luke Ridnour to a four year pact last week.
He’ll have something to prove with the Cavaliers. He’ll play well.
Hollins is a long, athletic big man. As a former track star, he can rebound, defend, and block shots; however, he’s raw offensively.
Meanwhile, the Timberwolves have already announced they’ll waive West and pocket the salary cap savings. Telfair will serve as Ridnour’s back-up while starter Jonny Flynn recovers from hip surgery.
