Unfortunately for him, it doesn’t look like the team is looking for a reunion. According to Jared Zwerling, Shawne Williams “wants to return to the Knicks but the team isn’t interested.” Williams played for the ‘Bockers two years ago, after Donnie Walsh gave him a shot, then last year, after his one-year contract expired, he… More
Just when it seemed like the Knicks were going to have a quiet off-season where they would keep most of the team together, the team goes out and acquires former Knick, Raymond Felton, in a sign and trade with the Portland TrailBlazers. With the team acquiring another point guard to go along with Jason Kidd… More
I’ve gotten a bunch of questions about Jeremy Lin and his contract, so thought I’d just quickly give you all a rundown of what’s going on. Last week, we learned that the Houston Rockets came to terms on an offer-sheet with Jeremy Lin. The reported value of the deal was four-years (with the fourth being… More
Pablo Prigioni, a 35-year-old Argentianean point guard who has been playing in Spain, has decided to accept the New York Knicks’ offer and come to the United States, according to Marc Berman. He’s set to become the oldest rookie in the NBA. Ever, I believe.

James “Flight” White and the New York Knicks have come to terms on a one-year, guaranteed minimum deal. White has spent the last two season in Italy, where he was the top scorer in 2010-2011 with 20.1 points a game, and averaged 17.1 points this past year.
Someone should tell the Knicks that point guards are not the only players available during free agency, but they’re set on improving their depth. Steve Nash and Jeremy Lin have stolen the spotlight, but 35-year old Pablo Prigioni has struck up some interest from Knicks personnel.
The New York Knicks have three very talented finishers in Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler. In order to make them their best, a point guard is needed, in order to facilitate the offense. Yes, Jeremy Lin will be re-signing with the team, but he can’t play 48 minutes a game.
