Sessions had a solid run as John Wall’s backup from 2015 to 2016. He averaged 9.2 assists and 3.0 assists per game during his time in Washington. Unfortunately, his production has fallen off considerably since he left Washington.
He signed a two-year deal with the Hornets in 2016, but the team declined the option on the second year of his deal after posting career-low numbers across the board. He signed with the Knicks last summer, but he only appeared in 13 games and was released in January.
As of now, it’s unclear whether or not Sessions will factor into the team’s plans beyond this 10-day contract. With Tim Frazier cleared to play, the only immediate need he addresses is getting the Wizards back up to the roster limit.
When the Wizards traded Sheldon Mac to Atlanta at the trade deadline two weeks ago, that left them with only 13 players on the roster. The team needed to sign a player on Thursday to comply with the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement. which dictates teams are only allowed to play with 13 players for up to two weeks at a time.
The Wizards now have 14 players on their roster, as well as Devin Robinson, who is on a two-way contract. Washington still has one open roster spot they can use sign an additional player, whether it be through someone getting bought out, or if they choose to sign an additional free agent to fill another position of need.
