Not too surprising except for the fact that Timofey unlike the other players who have already signed is not waiting around for the lockout to end before joining his new club, and unlike Deron Williams and others he is not for sure returning to Denver once the Lockout is over.
His deal is a guaranteed which means he does not have to return to Denver and he probably is more happy playing there then with Denver and he would have to negotiate a buyout from this club again.
Hmmm....including him in the deal could have been a blessing in disguise, I mean being that his playing time was so up and down he couldve opted to do the same if he was a Knick still.
By the way....did you know he got married in a Vegas Drive through chapel!!!
