Several league sources said Wednesday that they believed the New York Knicks had abandoned their pursuit of Bucks restricted free agent guard Ramon Sessions, leaving the Clippers as the prime candidate for the 23-year-old. The Oklahoma City Thunder has a tangential interest, according to sources, but is not believed to be seriously pursuing Sessions.
With the Knicks still trying to keep as much cap room as possible for 2010, tying up funds in Sessions apparently is not a priority for New York, which is also in the midst of discussions with unrestricted free agent Andre Miller. However, the same limitations apply for Miller, who is looking for more than the one year offered by both New York and Philadelphia.
i doubt he becomes a top 10 point.the main suitor for him is LAC and he wont start there unless they somehow find someone to trade B-Diddy with.if Baron didnt get paid so much,i wudnt mind having him here.
He is a decent backup point. I wouldn't have him as starting point guard.
Here was a summary from a post I had awhile ago........

It's both a shame and a travesty that this should be the case. Telfair has passing skills rivalled by few of his peers, and arrived in the league to great fanfare for this reason. He had a cover shoot for Slam Magazine, and was hyped as the next big thing. Sadly, it all went **** up when it became apparent that being able to make really fancy passes is not the same thing as being able to run an NBA offense. And at this, Sebastian struggles. Mightily.
He is best when looking for his own shot, but his own shot is not very good. He is an inefficient scorer, who can finish well at the rim, but who doesn't get there very well. His jumpshot is extremely inconsistent and, frankly, rather poor. And yet Sebastian continues to put them up. Worse yet is his defense, which is rather poor. Disadvantaged by a lack of size and strength, Telfair doesn't help himself by not putting forward much effort on defense; even when he can stay in front of you, he'll often switch off and won't.
Now in the interests of fairness, I should intersperse this with a few positives, in a bid to be Tel-fair to Sebastian. (That joke is now retired.) He can pass the ball, has a fine handle, and runs an offense to a reasonable standard for a backup NBA point guard. But it's hard to go further than that with the good times. Not much has gone right for Sebastian at the NBA level, not on the court nor off it.
Ramon is looking for a 5 year deal worth 35 and the Knicks aint doing that which is smart... I like Ramon and would LOVE to have him but I think we learned our lesson with Jerome James... I think 3 years is good not even sure I would do 4, especially when Ramon doesnt have a market really.... Dont bid against yourself Walsh 1st good think you've done so far!
