The Wizards announced on Monday afternoon they’ve signed Ramon Sessions to a second 10-day contract, following the 10-day deal he completed on Sunday evening.
The move comes as a bit of a surprise, considering Sessions didn’t play at all during his first stint with the team, and Washington needs help on the wings. Bradley Beal has averaged 38.1 minutes per game since the All-Star break, the sixth-highest average in the league since the All-Star break, and Kelly Oubre missed Sunday’s loss to the Pacers with a sore foot.
Hopefully Sessions’ return means Oubre’s foot issue isn’t serious (he practiced with the team on Monday), but it still doesn’t explain why the team feels a third point guard who doesn’t see the floor is a higher priority than extra help on the wings.
According to NBA rules, teams are only allowed to sign players to two 10-day contracts in a season. So once this second contract is up, the Wizards have to either sign him to a deal for the rest of the season or let him go. If Washington releases him, they’ll need to find a new player to get Washington back to the 14-player roster minimum moving forward.
