If Sessions ever wants to be a starting point guard, however, it probably won’t be in Cleveland. Irving, 19, could be a fixture for years to come.
Sessions has the ability to opt out of his contract at the end of the season. The Lakers, for instance, could trade for him and encourage him to opt out to reduce their luxury tax bill.
Either way, he’ll likely opt out. His contract is worth $4.6 million for 2012-13. He might sacrifice some money next season for the security of a multiyear contract.
Sessions is a luxury the Cavs might not be able to afford right now. They have so many other holes to fill.
