The New York Knicks have signed point guard Ramon Sessions to a one-year deal worth $2.3 million, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical:

Sessions, 31, may be the team’s starting point guard while no. 8 overall pick Frank Ntilikina recovers from a knee injury.

Sessions last played with the Charlotte Hornets, averaging6.2 points and 2.6 assists on 38 percent shooting in 50 games.

Sessions has been a true journeyman throughout his 10-year NBA career. Aside from the Hornets, he’s spent time with the Milwaukee Bucks, Minnesota Timberwolves, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and Washington Wizards. Now, the Knicks.

After Derrick Rose signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Knicks needed a point guard. Sessions… is one. He’s not going to make an All-Star team or anything, but Sessions is a fine point guard. He’s better suited to be a backup, which he’ll probably become in New York once Ntilikina is healthy.
