Alan Hahn's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
It's August, when NBA free agency news slows to a crawl. Knicks are still mulling options, but keep this in mind:
Remember what GM Glen Grunwald said last month when he discussed how the team might fill the final spots on the roster, especially the third point guard position.
If you don't recall, Grunwald suggested one option would be to bring in a few veterans and have them compete. So when you read about interest in players such as Bobby Brown, Mo Williams, Delonte West, Sebastian Telfair and Jannero Pargo, among others, consider what Grunwald said.
Rather than commit to one player, the Knicks could invite a few vets in (non-guaranteed) and let them battle for a spot. If you ask why would a veteran want to do that, recall what players such as Shawne Williams, Chris Copeland, Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak were able to do for their finances when they came to play in New York.
Sometimes it can pay off to be a role player on the Knicks. Especially if the crowd falls in love with you.
Of course it's a risk for the Knicks to go this route, too. Veteran players want assurances and the right guy may take an offer elsewhere, which would leave the Knicks without an important piece.
