As expected, a bunch of teams showing interest in UFA Ramon Sessions, the Bulls being one of them.

Sessions, along with Jeff Adrien, came to Milwaukee from Charlotte at the trade deadline in exchange for Luke Ridnour and Gary Neal. The 28-year-old was impressive in 28 games (12 starts), averaging 15.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds while shooting over 46 percent from the field.
An unrestricted free agent, Sessions can sign with any team without the Bucks having a chance to match. In all likelihood, Milwaukee would like to bring Sessions back on a new deal, but it will be difficult to do so with suitors like Chicago – a team on the cusp of contending for a title – bidding for his services. Sessions has reached the postseason only once in seven NBA seasons, starting 12 playoff games for the 2011-12 Lakers.
Coming off of a two-year, $10 million contract, Sessions will likely seek an annual salary in the $5-8 million range. As a point of reference, Jodie Meeks, a player of comparable value, signed a three-year, $19 million deal with the Pistons on Tuesday.
