The Lakers have acquired a point guard to help them in their playoff push, trading for Cleveland's Ramon Sessions, according to an NBA official.
The Lakers sent forward Luke Walton, forward Jason Kapono and their 2012 first-round draft choice to the Cavaliers for Sessions and forward Christian Eyenga.
Sessions became expendable in Cleveland after the Cavaliers made rookie Kyrie Irving their starting point guard. Sessions, who turns 26 next month, was averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists for the Cavaliers.
Unless the Lakers also complete a trade involving point guards Derek Fisher or Steve Blake, the addition of Sessions would create a logjam at the position. Sessions has one more year remaining on his contract for $4.55 million, though he can opt out.
