ramon sessions

Conventional wisdom suggests point guard Ramon Sessions will terminate his contract July 1, become a free agent and sign a bigger and better deal with the Lakers.

After all, he wasn’t acquired March 15 to be just a rent-a-player.

He would prefer to think about the present rather than the future, however, and concentrate on helping the Lakers advance past the Denver Nuggets in their Western Conference quarterfinal series.

Sessions, who made his playoff debut in Game 1 against the Nuggets after spending his first four seasons with non-qualifiers Milwaukee, Minnesota and Cleveland, is due to be paid $4.3 million for this season and $4.5 million in 2012-13.

“It’s definitely something that’s not in the back of my mind right now because I’m trying to focus on the playoffs,” Sessions said on the eve of Game 4.
