While Space City Scoop has praised the play of Isaiah Canaan pretty extensively this summer, there is still the issue of experience, something Canaan has precious little of.
Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders reported that Rockets GM is engaging in talks with the Milwaukee Bucks to obtain combo guard Ramon Sessions. Sessions would be a superb backup, as he is both a solid scorer and playmaker.
Sources say there is mutual interest between Ramon Sessions and the Rockets. There have been sign-and-trade talks, but nothing is imminent.

Last season he averaged 12 points and four assists per game. He’d also be a change of pace from starting 1-man Patrick Beverley. Sessions has had some big assist games in his career.
The Rockets second unit isn’t overwhelmingly loaded, to say the least, and having Sessions could only help Nick Johnson, Donatas Motiejunas, Troy Daniels, etc. The youth in the second unit would benefit from a vet like Sessions at the helm.
While Sessions isn’t the kind of signing that will turn heads around the Association, it is the small kind of tinkering that needs to be done in the wake of Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik departing. Eventually, Morey will need to address frontcourt depth, too.
