End of an era: Fisher no longer a Laker

As the NBA trade deadline passed, the LA Lakers were surprisingly the most active trader. The Lakers were able to unload some contracts but also get younger for a playoff push this year. The Lakers will say goodbye to longtime point guard Derek Fisher and bench mainstay Luke Walton.

Trade 1: Jason Kapono (2.0 ppg, .382 FG%), Luke Walton (1.3 ppg, 1.6 rpg) and Laker’s 2012 first round pick for Cleveland Cavaliers’ Ramon Sessions (10.5 ppg, 5.2 apg) and Christian Eyenga (1.5 ppg, 2.0 rpg).

Trade 2: Derek Fisher and Maverick’s 2012 first round pick (from the Lamar Odom deal) for Houston Rockets center Jordan Hill (5.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg).

The big catch Lakers is Sessions who will probably get the starting role eventually for Lakers. Sessions is on a contract year and he is averaging more than 5 assists per game despite being the back up of 2011 No.1 pick Kyrie Irving.
