Ramon Sessions to the Knicks?

Sessions has a year left on his contract and the Cavaliers are looking to clear cap space. The Knicks are starting to realize the iffy proposition that is Baron Davis, who has been too sore to practice with contact this week and whose debut is up in the air, with the Knicks coaching staffing saying it won’t be until next week at the earliest.
Asked directly about Sessions, D’Antoni said, “Glen (Grunwald), I’m sure he’s sitting there going what could we do if Plan A doesn’t work. Plan B, Plan C. He’s looking into every possibility. Whether there’s a possibility or not, I don’t think so. I’m sure it would be thoroughly discussed and looked at. Whatever will make our team better we’ll do it.’’
The Knicks would have to cut a player to make room for either, and probably at this stage could axe erratic and injury-prone Mike Bibby rather than prospect Jeremy Lin, whose contract is not guaranteed.
“Those are things you monitor,’’ D’Antoni said. “Things you keep your eye on. We have the $2.5 million (salary cap) exception left and we’ll look at it. … If it makes sense we’ll do it in a heartbeat. If it doesn’t make sense we won’t. Most of the time it’s agents saying they’re looking at my guy but I’m sure we’ll do our due diligence.’’
