Reggie Evans to sign with Knicks?
Free-agent power forward Reggie Evans stopped by the pre-draft camp in Orlando and said he would entertain an offer from the Knicks on July 1st.
The Knicks tried to complete a deal for Evans, but Seattle elected to trade him to Denver in a four-way deal.
"If they contacted me, my ears would be open," Evans said. "I was aware (of their interest). It's always good when a team wants you. I really appreciated it."

Reggie Evans would be great for us. He'd give us rebounding and toughness much like Oakley back in the day. So what if he grabbed Kaman's nuts haha. The only thing that I'm not fond of is our log at PF you have Frye, Lee, Rose and Taylor. Taylor is as good as gone. but sign Evans and its now Frye, Lee, Rose & Evans. Rose would sit the bench. and then you still have a clogged rotation. and if we are going to get any PF I kinda rather have a shotblocking one...
Isiah has some work to do. and with the draft approaching I rather just get a cheap rookie say a Josh Booner or Hilton Amstrong to be our PF dirty man.
Re: Reggie Evans to sign with Knicks?
I think the LAST thing we need is another udersized PF. Especially one who has the worst shot in NBA history!! I think K-mart is worth the risk. We take on so many bad contracts of players that don't do a damn thing for us; Malik, Taylor, and yes, Frances. He was the last player the Knicks needed! If he was brought aboard soley for trade purposes, then the Knicks didn't do their home work. He has a contract that no one wants. K-mart has a huge contract but at least he can defend. If he splits his time with Frye, that might help to keep him healthy longer. Jalen's contract is expiring but what will it bring us back in a trade if not used for Martin? Since Portland might be sold, I would see if we could get Miles as well.
