    better check that out because I have been studying rumors like it is my job and I have not seen one reporter talk about Balkman at all. I don't think they can use his contract because he was cut....Douglas, Harrelson, Gadzuric and Jordan were all signed for next year or had partial contracts...

    I believe once you are cut you cant be used in a trade.

    LAS VEGAS -- The Knicks met with Marcus Camby Sunday in Houston and hoped to return to New York with an agreement with the veteran center.
    A league source said the Knicks and Nets have been the most aggressive teams chasing Camby. According to one report, those two teams are considered the frontrunners to land the 38-year-old in a sign-and-trade with Houston. But the Nets also were trying to land a younger big man, Dwight Howard, and that likely would use up many of the assets needed for Camby.
    Neither the Knicks nor Nets have much to offer him without a sign-and-trade. The Knicks are expected to use the $3.09-million taxpayer midlevel on Jason Kidd and the Nets will give theirs to European forward Mirza Teletovic.
    The Heat also was in the mix for Camby. But after giving the mini-midlevel to Ray Allen, Miami would need to do a sign-and-trade for him. The Spurs and Mavericks also have expressed interest.
    The Knicks have four players with deals that expire after the upcoming season: Toney Douglas, Dan Gadzuric, Josh Harrellson and Jerome Jordan. They also have Renaldo Balkman's expiring contract on their payroll and up to $3 million they can include in trades. But they wouldn't part with all of that for Camby. The Knicks would like to use those assets to make multiple deals for veterans (perhaps Randy Foye) through sign-and-trades and then fill out their roster by inking players to minimum contracts.
    Camby would provide rebounding, shot-blocking and a defensive presence off the bench. He played with the Knicks from 1999-2002 and helped them reach the 1999 NBA Finals. He has career averages of 9.7 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.4 blocks. He spent six seasons playing with Carmelo Anthony in Denver, and Anthony said he planned to call Camby to recruit him.

    I'm loving the free agency.

    It's good that we have essentially the same team with some upgrades.

    Is it out of the question that we match Toronto for Fields? We only have the BAE and vet min exceptions left to sign players so keeping Landry would be a cap buster but we wouldn't be looking for another wing player if we kept him.

    NBA journeyman Mike James could be on the Knicks' radar as a 3rd-string point guard.
    James has a long history of injuries in his nine-season NBA career, and he spent most of last season on the Knicks' D-League affiliate in Erie, where he averaged 21.1 points, 2.1 threes, 3.7 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.1 steals.

    Chris Tomasson is reporting on Twitter that his sources say free agent forward Rashard Lewis is likely to join the Miami Heat for the veteran's minimum of $1.35 million.
    Adding both Lewis and Ray Allen should give the Heat plenty of 3-point shooting power, and while Lewis was a disaster after signing a massive contract in Orlando, he should be a perfect fit in Miami.

    Default now official

    Rashard Lewis has agreed to a two-year contract to join the Heat.
    This basically makes official our report from an hour ago that the two sides were nearing a deal. Lewis will get the veteran's minimum and should be a perfect fit for the Heat, joining Ray Allen and Norris Cole as immediate help off the bench once LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers are ready for a break. The rich get richer, if Lewis is over the right knee problem that limited him to 28 games last season.

    We need to make a run at Raja Bell, i think he's the perfect compliment to this team, even at his age he is still a Great defender and can hit the long ball 39% from down town last season.

    It's also been reported that we are looking at a sign and trade for dahntay jones.

    Nyk Logo Mike James - Potentially adding a 3rd string PG

    It's not a rumor, just a suggestion.

    Agent Bernie Lee said Mike James is a candidate to sign minimum deal with Knicks. “It seems like a pretty logical thing,’’ Lee said of James, who could be third point behind Jeremy Lin and Jason Kidd.

    Lee noted James won a title with Detroit in 2004 when Knicks coach Mike Woodson was a Pistons assistant. Lee said Chicago, where James finished last season, also has maintained interest in bringing back James.


    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    From last season:

    Mike James, who the Chicago Bulls recently signed to a 10-day contract, told ESPN Chicago that the New York Knicks nearly released Jeremy Lin last month in order to sign James from the D-League.


    _____________________

    It would be nice to have that extra PG, IMO. In Douglas' absence - not that he could come even close to ever playing a PG's role - having basically only Kidd, Lin and SG JR Smith as primary ball handlers, it'd be nice to have an experienced backup in case of injury.

    Picking up someone out of desperation on a quick D-League call up after a potential injury, as opposed to keeping someone on the roster to learn the system and form familiarity with the team, would not be a good call.

    One last piece for insurance's sake.

    Doesn't necessarily have to be Mike James, of course.

    Mike James Mix ~ keep in mind that it's from 2008.
