Knicks Seeking Point Guard

December 6, 2010

Raymond Felton isn’t enough in New York, but D’Antoni does have a point. The Knicks need to be a better team overall. My suggestion is to look in the D-League. Hungry ballers everywhere.

From Hoops World:

The New York Knicks have won nine of their last ten games, but they’re still not completely satisfied with their roster. According to league sources, the Knicks have been placing calls about a number of players and have been one of the most active teams in the league as far as trade talks go early in the season.

It’s only December, but the Knicks have already started working the phones. While the team has been linked to big names such as Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, and Steve Nash, their discussions thus far have mainly focused on role players rather than stars.

One piece that New York continues to shop is Bill Walker. Entering his third season, Walker had been seeking a contract extension from the Knicks, but as his minutes and role have decreased, he has become increasingly expendable.

The Knicks continue to weigh several trade scenarios, but it appears their priority is acquiring a short-term backup point guard. Around the league, several players match this description.

T.J. Ford, Earl Boykins, Ronnie Price, Earl Watson, and Jason Williams are among the reserve point guards whose contracts will expire after the season, just in time for the Knicks to be players in free agency next summer.

There are also several free agents available – including Acie Law, Juan Dixon, Javaris Crittenton, Anthony Johnson and Damon Jones – that would be willing to sign a one-year deal. Many of these veteran point guards are waiting for an injury to occur or a roster spot to open up so that they can make their NBA comeback.

The Knicks have played well and are starting to get everyone on the same page, but sources expect the team to make a trade before February’s deadline. For now, the team is busy doing their homework and working the phones to determine what’s available around the league.
