UPDATE: Chris Sheridan at ESPN is reporting that Sessions has agreed to sing an offer from the Wolves for $16 million over 4 years.

Ramon Sessions could be approaching the end of his long and unpredictable free agency odyssey.
Sessions, a restricted free agent who wound being the Bucks' starting point guard last season after just two years in the NBA, could be on the verge of receiving an offer sheet.
According to some NBA officials, Sessions may wind up signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Timberwolves are in the market for a guard after their top choice in the 2009 draft -- Ricky Rubio -- recently decided to play for Regal FC Barcelona.
Neither Sessions nor Chubby Wells, Sessions' agent, could be reached for comment Thursday night. Ditto for Timberwolves president David Kahn.
If Sessions does sign an offer sheet with the Timberwolves, the Bucks would have seven days in which to match it. That is highly unlikely, though.[ed. trimmed]
Sessions would be quite affordable on a deal starting at what we have left of the MLE. $3.7 million? The timing is kind of weird given Kahn's words about preserving 2010 and getting playing time for our young guys, but I guess Sessions would still qualify as youth. It's not like we're stocked with great backcourt options. There should be minutes for both Sessions and Flynn.
