NBA Free Agency 2012: Mavericks Linked With Ramon Sessions

After losing out on Deron Williams, Jason Kidd and Steve Nash, the Dallas Mavericks have to move to plan D at the point guard position. That apparently includes Los Angeles Lakers free agent Ramon Sessions, who was last seen going 4-25 from beyond the three-point line in the post-season.

According to a report from Jeff Caplan of ESPN Dallas, the Mavericks have reached out to Sessions, who is seeking stability and job security after playing for 4 teams in 5 seasons.

However, there's a reason the 26-year old has bounced so much around the NBA. He's not athletic enough to be a defensive contributor and he's an abysmal outside shooter, which means he's only effective with the ball in his hands. In LA, once he entered the ball into the post, teams felt free to double off of him, nor was he a dynamic playmaker that you would want him to have the ball in his hands over the primary offensive option of any NBA team.

He's an ideal change of pace PG off the bench, but he wants to be the starter. If Dallas is willing to give Sessions a long-term contract, they might as well keep Delonte West, a better shooter, defender and scorer.

For all the latest news and notes on the Mavericks free agency plans, stay tuned to the SB Nation Dallas story-stream as well as Mavs Moneyball.
