NBA Career

Although some felt Sessions should have returned for his senior year at Nevada, he put on a very strong performance at the NBA pre-draft camp in Orlando and decided to stay in the draft. Considered by scouts to be a very good ballhandler, passer, and decision-maker, although his athleticism and NBA-scoring ability were questioned.[2]

Sessions was the first NBA player to be assigned to the NBA Development League in the 2007-08 season, when he was sent by the Bucks to the Tulsa 66ers;[3] Sessions was named D-League Performer of the Week for the opening weekend of the season, November 26, 2007, averaging 30.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists.[3] Later in the season, for January 28, 2008, he was also named Performer of the Week, becoming the first two-time performer for the season.[4] He averaged 29.6 points, 8.0 rebounds and 12.3 assists in three wins for the 66ers.[4]

In January 2008, Sessions was first called up to the Bucks, but due to a wrist injury he wasn't able to make his NBA debut until March 9[5], in a 119-97 home loss against the Philadelphia 76ers, scoring 2 points.[6] Later on, due to injuries to starting point guard Maurice "Mo" Williams and reserve Charlie Bell, his playing time increased. Earlier, on April 2, he made a game-winning 19-foot baseline jumper, off a pass from Andrew Bogut, to give the Bucks a dramatic one-point road win against the Washington Wizards in a game where the Bucks never led by more than one point.[7]

On April 14, 2008, Sessions scored a then career-high 20 points, adding 8 rebounds and a Milwaukee Bucks franchise-record 24 assists against the Chicago Bulls in a 151-135 home loss.[8] His performance was also the first "20-20" (also known as a double double-double) with points and assists in Bucks history.[8] The following night he topped his career-high with 25 points, in a 110-101 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.[9] Sessions topped his career high again by almost doubling it. On February 7, 2009 in an overtime loss against the Detroit Pistons, he scored 44 points.[10] On April 1, 2009, Sessions recorded his first career triple-double against the Los Angeles Lakers scoring 16 points with 16 assists and 10 rebounds.[11]

On September 4, 2009, he signed an offer sheet from the Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly worth $16 million for 4 years.[12] The Bucks had seven days to match the offer but declined. Sessions will likely share backcourt duties with Timberwolves rookie guard Jonny Flynn.
