Bucks Decline To Match Sessions’ Offer Sheet

David Kahn got his man, after he tried to get his boy from Spain. The Bucks declined to match the Timberwolves $16 million offer sheet to point guard Ramon Sessions and despite, Post-Up Prince’s idea that Walsh should save the day by entering into a sign and trade with the Bucks for the guards services, Walsh revealed that he was never really in the Sessions Sweepstakes.

  1. Passing on Sessions will again place a heavy burden on Duhon. I believe the Knicks missed the boat on Sessions and predict that he will ultimately start over Johnny Flynn for the Timberwolves and have a career high season in both scoring and assists.

    Walsh and/or D’Antonio evidently do not think that Tony Douglas is quite ready to assume substantial minutes this season, which is why Walsh invited Gabe Pruit (the Celtic free agent) to training camp. Walsh also invited Warren Carter to training camp; he showed more fire and desire than Hill during the Las Vegas Summer League.

    I guess Walsh expects the 2010 bonanza of free agents will bring at least superstar to enable the Knicks to improve enough for him to retain his job, and move into 2011 with an eye on Deron Williams, Chris Paul or perhaps Ricky Rubio (?) to upgrade the point guard spot. Both Williams and Paul, however, may be unaffordable after Walsh spends most of his cap space savings on Lebron. Rubio’s ability to play at a high level in the NBA remains to be seen.

  2. Everyone knew he was never in the Game for PG Sessions. Overpaying for mediocore talent is just not logical. In these economic times he has no real marketing value and adds nothing to the bottom line.

    BTW Auggie, your desire to own the knicks and call the shots is not a pipedream’ it is just not possible in NYC. Public ownership of Professional Sports Teams is possible. The Greenbay Packers is just one example. Several francises in Canada are publicly owned as well.

    it is appealing in some markets because of Franchises propensity to move out of a local it they can’t stick up the community to build that new Stadium on the backs of taxpayers. Auggie, on the real, minor league baseball teams present the real best option for public ownership.
    Don’t know where yo reside Auggie, but The prospect of ownership may be closer than you realize.

    Lastly, Carter & Pruitt are the type of pieces that fit the KNICK’S fiscal objectives. You know some Rubies are often found on the cheap. Time will eventually tell the true story…

    One Love!

    Keep it CRACKIN!

    • Cooley Cool, my brudder, my brudder, is that you getting the beat down by the G-men. If it’s you, nice catch — followed by a GIANT interception.

      Dag, McNabb gets hurt AGAIN. Vick: “I hear them howling my name.”

      Ever body knew ‘cept for D’Antoni who, for a minute, thought he was gonna get a Sessions.

      “Overpaying for mediocore talent is just not logical.” It took Walsh 23 years and signing Duhon for the full MLE to figure that out?

      Where is Gallinari? LGK. No excuses.

  4. O & B, you know I got nothin but Love for you Baby, but are vying for the Sean Hannity AwardLOL. There is and was a qualifying statement tht directly followed. Also, we just paid N8 5 Mil for 1 year, which is a real good deal. N8’S immaturity is his handicap. He could give US more points and assists from the PG position if he played with some savy and control. Not to mention, depending on the match-ups he can slide to the two. Sessions was never the answer IMHO!

    • Mad love and respect right back at ya Bog Dawg Cooley!

      In a summer where a modest but strategic acquisition in a position where the [ ]’antoni system can both heighten and mas value for purposes of future asset alternatives, the failure to sign a young point on the come may as much be a sign of a fear to take a gamble as much is it is the much baleyhooed organizational spirit of patience and prudence.

      No doubt time will tell my esteemed brother from another mother. In the end I’ll cheer on each and every Knick who dones the colors of our beloved team, and hope for internal growth and improvement.

      But that aside the great thing about this brotherhood of bloggers is that we respect one another and value the high spirit of informed and provocative discourse and debate

      One love big dawg! One love!
