Sessions signed a two-year, $12.5 million contract with the Hornets on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Sessions spent the majority of the 2015-16 season backing up John Wall, restricting his minutes to around 20 per game. With the Hornets, he should see a slight boost in playing time, but he'll still be playing behind Kemba Walker, which could still hold back his overall numbers as a whole. The Hornets lost both Jeremy Lin and Courtney Lee in free agency, so Sessions was a much-needed boost to the backcourt depth chart.
Sessions finished the 2015-16 season strong with three double-doubles over his last five games. Sessions spent the 2015-16 season coming off of the bench in relief for John Wall, but when Washington shut Wall down for the final five games with knee issues, Sessions took full advantage. He averaged 17.6 points and 9.6 assists playing 32.1 minutes per game over that stretch. Sessions provided consistency for the Wizards as the only player to play in all 82 games, but is set to hit free agency this summer and has already announced his desire to sign somewhere else as a starting point guard.
Sessions compiled 22 points (9-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, four rebounds, and one steal across 34 minutes during the Wizards' 109-98 win against the Hawks on Wednesday. Sessions committed five turnovers and five fouls, but helped lead the Wizards to a win to close the season. Sessions finished the year in style, averaging 17.6 points (55.0 FG, 46.2 3Pt, 84.2 FT), 9.6 assists to 2.8 turnovers, 3.2 rebounds, and one steal in 32 minutes over the last five games. However, it was an injury to John Wall (knee) combined with Washington's failed campaign that made this possible.
Sessions recorded a double-double with 21 points (7-10 FG, 7-7 FT, 0-1 3Pt) and 12 assists to go along with three rebounds and a pair of steals in 29 minutes during Monday's win over the Nets. Sessions made another start and continued his exceptional play, notching his third double-double in the last four games. John Wall (knee) could sit out Wednesday's regular season finale versus Atlanta since the Wizards have already been eliminated from the playoff race, putting Sessions in line to finish out the year with another start.
Sessions delivered a double-double with 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 FT, 1-3 3Pt) and 11 rebounds while adding five rebounds and a steal in a team-high 36 minutes during Sunday's win over the Hornets. The veteran made another start with John Wall (knee) sidelined, and he delivered his second double-dip in the last three games. Sessions is averaging 15 points and 10 assists during that time, and he is poised to remain a productive fantasy option for as long as Wall continues to sit.
