Sessions, Andre Miller and Other Updates

In a story that is taking more turns than a Nascar race, it appears the Knicks are back on Sessions.  At this point I just wish something would actually get done.  Gery Woeflel is tweeting

Knicks still leaning toward offer sheet 4 Ramon Sessions. S&T with D. Lee isn’t in cards

The fact the Knicks are back in the Sessions fold mostly can be attributed to Andre Miller getting an an offer from Portland.  From ESPN:

Free-agent point guard Andre Miller has signed with the Portland Trail Blazers, the team announced on Friday.

Miller’s contract is a three-year deal worth $21 million, with $14 million guaranteed and $7 million included as a third-year team option, sources close to the process said.

With Miller out of the mix, the Knicks will likely re-focus on Sessions to fill their PG need, so it looks like we will have stay tuned to Sessions and the Knicks.

In other news, Hakim Warrick is being let go by the Grizzlies.  From Celtics Blog:

“That power forward is Hakim Warrick, who was taken by surprise Thursday night when the Grizzlies rescinded their $3 million qualifying offer to him to give themselves more flexibility on the free-agent market.”

I always found Warrick an interesting prospect coming out of Syracuse.  Yes, Carmelo Anthony was the main force behind the National title, but it was Warricks length that seemed to cause so much havoc in Jim Boeheim 2-3 zone.  If I remember correctly, it was Warrick who blocked the final 3point attempt in the win over Kansas in the National title game.

He doesn’t play nearly good enough defense for Scott Skiles, so I would imagine the Bucks have no interest, but Warrick does have a respectable Player Efficiency Rating(PER) at 16.91 last year.  Below are his stats per 40 minutes, may not be a horrible option for the Bucks to add another athlete to run the floor with Jennings at an affordable price.  Another positive note, he played all 82 games last year.
