The wait to see who the Hornets backup point guard will be next year is over. Charlotte has come to terms on a two-year 12 million dollar deal with a former Bobcat, Ramon Sessions. Sessions last played for Charlotte in 2014. Since then, he has played for the Bucks, Kings, and Wizards.
This signing makes sense for Charlotte, as Sessions is a proven backup who worked well with Kemba Walker during his first stint with the franchise. Sessions won't overwhelm you with his shooting, but he's a good pick and roll player who gets to the foul line frequently.
When you look at career numbers, it's clear that Jeremy Lin is a better option than Sessions, but it's pretty close. For what it's worth, Sessions has been a more efficient player from the field.
The Hornets' roster is shaping up nicely, with the one remaining hole being a rim protector. I'm sure Charlotte has interest in renounced Golden State center Festus Ezeli, but he is now likely out of their price range.
