Ramon Sessions acknowledged the contributions of Derek Fisher with the Lakers during his arrival to the franchise.

"[Derek] Fisher was a great guy for this organization. I'm not here to replace Fisher," Sessions said Friday. "I'm just here to do whatever they need me to do and try to win games..."

Sessions averaged 10.5 points and 5.2 assists per game in backing up Kyrie Irving. He will now be more of a facilitator to Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.

"I don't need 30 shots a night," he said. "If it's a night where they need me to score, I'll score. If it's a night they need me to get guys the ball, that's what I'll do.

"That definitely helps any time you have those two big trees out there," he said, referencing Bynum and Gasol. "It's going to make my job easier. I could throw a bad pass and they're going to make it look good. And you're not even mentioning Kobe [Bryant] on the wing."
