Alan Hahn's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
As we get closer to training camp, remaining free agents get more urgency. Knicks have options at backup PF:
Kenyon Martin is the player so many continue to link to the Knicks, but K-Mart has remained steadfast in not wanting to accept a veteran's minimum. A few teams have Martin on their radar, including the Celtics. While K-Mart provides more toughness and size to the team, the Knicks might not want to get locked in with a volatile player. Not with other younger candidates still out there, such as Lou Amundson, who is contemplating offers overseas against opportunities in the NBA. Amundson could take a one-year in New York and, if he does well behind Amar'e Stoudemire, turn it into a better deal next summer.
Another name to keep an eye on his Shawne Williams, who had success with the Knicks in 2010-11 under Mike D'Antoni but then went to the Nets for more money last summer, only to suffer an injury-depleted season.
The Hawks released Jordan Williams, a former second-round pick of the Nets, and he could get some consideration.
As far as veterans go, Chris Andersen has pushed the idea of playing for the Knicks, but the sentiment isn't mutual . . . Tracy McGrady did get a much-heralded tryout last week with the Knicks, but there doesn't appear to be great interest there. T-Mac also worked out for the Bobcats and Spurs.
