The New York Knicks will likely dump Ramon Sessions in order to make room for Trey Burke.
I mentioned on Monday that there is a report out that the New York Knicks are in serious talks with G League star Trey Burke, in order to keep him from playing in this week’s showcase, that would enable any NBA team to snatch him up.
It would be ideal for the Knicks to trade a player on their current roster in order to open up a spot for Burke, but if that doesn’t happen, the Knicks will likely release point guard Ramon Sessions, according to Marc Berman of the NY Post.
The Knicks are expected to waive point guard Ramon Sessions, who lost his starting job after the season’s third game, if they can’t find a trade for the veteran. Yahoo first reported the Burke negotiations.
Burke is an intriguing player that has lit up the G League this season and could be ready to fulfill his NBA potential after the Minnesota Timberwolves used the ninth overall pick on him during the 2013 NBA Draft.
Burke played his college ball alongside Tim Hardaway Jr. at Michigan and they could form a nice one-two punch this season.
Damyean Dotson headed to showcase
Knicks’ rookie second round pick Damyean Dotson will have the chance to show what he can do at this week’s G League showcase.
Damyean Dotson has been assigned to the Westchester Knicks to participate in the NBA G League Showcase Jan. 10-13 in Mississauga, Ontario. He is scheduled to rejoin the NY Knicks following the Showcase.

Dotson has been solid this season for the Knicks, but he may not be ready to make a difference on an NBA roster as a rookie.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on the Knicks possibly dropping Sessions for Burke as well as Dotson heading to the showcase.
