The Washington Wizards will be signing guard Ramon Sessions to a 2nd 10-day contract, according to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.

The team has been impressed with Sessions during his stint and head coach Scott Brooks spoke about the impression he has left on the organization and staff.

He’s a worker. He hasn’t gotten any opportunities. That might change [Sunday] night,” head coach Scott Brooks said Friday of Sessions.

“Man, listen. Growing up where I grew up [Myrtle Beach, S.C.], just always wanting to be in the NBA was a dream for me,” Sessions said Friday. “I’ve been in the league for 11 years, and it’s still one of those things when I wake up, I still look back and [say], ‘Man, I’m in the NBA!’ Each day is a blessing to me, and it’s still a dream come true to be here. Being drafted in ’07 and still be playing in the NBA.

“Ten-day or one-day, that name on the back of the jersey means a lot to me and my family.”

“I’m in a great situation,” Rozier said, according to NBC Sports Boston. “My team felt it wasn’t good for me to sign an extension right now. It opens my options a little bit, but I’m focused on what’s happening right now.”

The New York Knicks are not expected to give Kristaps Porzingis a contract extension before the end of Monday’s deadline, which will make the budding franchise player a restricted free agent next summer, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.
