Lakers' first impressions of Ramon Sessions
The LA Daily News Blog reports:
Ramon Sessions scored seven points with four rebounds, five assists and three turnovers in his Lakers debut Friday night, a 97-92 wire-to-wire victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. He played 19 minutes, 26 seconds as Steve Blake's backup at point guard. Sessions said he looked forward to practicing with his new team Saturday and learning the plays. Assistant coach Quin Snyder sat next to him on the bench and talked him through some of the Lakers' sets early in Friday's game.
"We don't have any days to practice, so that was his first practice and his first game combined," Lakers coach Mike Brown said. "He can play, obviously. He's got a feel. He's been in the league long enough. The team I'm coaching is very intelligent, so they helped him out on the floor, how to space and play the game of basketball.
"You can see his quickness. He's got a second, third and probably even a fourth gear."
