Lakers ship Walton to Cavs, source says
First Published Mar 15 2012 01:02 pm • Last Updated Mar 15 2012 04:23 pm

A person familiar with the trade says the Cleveland Cavaliers have sent backup point guard Ramon Sessions and forward Christian Eyenga to the Los Angeles Lakers.

In return, the Cavs are getting forward Luke Walton and a first-round draft pick, says the person who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the deal must be approved by the NBA’s office in New York. The trading deadline was 1 p.m. MDT.

The Cavs want to build around rookie guard Kyrie Irving, and they’ve acquired another pick to help the 19-year-old. While the trade may help Cleveland’s future it may jeopardize its chances of making the playoffs this season.

Sessions, who is averaging 10.5 points and 5.2 assists in a reserved role, will fill a hole for the Lakers. The 25-year-old was expected to opt out of his contract following the season.
