I will not be surprised if the Knicks approach K-Mart Next. Jones would be a decent pickup he is a pesky defender and even when Shump comes back he could still get mins at the 3. If that SG White proves rotation worthy the knicks will have a good team.
The Bulls will not pick up SG Ronnie Brewer's option for 2012-13.
He has almost no shot at returning to the Bulls, but will likely find a bench role in the NBA.

Dahntay Jones was the starting SG on Denver when they almost went to the finals. He defended CP3 as well as anyone i've ever seen in the first round. Would love him here.
All is quite in Free Agency, tomorrow should stir up some news.
The league's moratorium ends
The Nyets are about to give Brook Lopez an old school Max of either 58 million for 4 years or 78 million for 8 years....
Also someone did the math and the knicks could get Dahntay Jones evening though he took his player option for 2.9 million by sending them Dan Gadzuric contract along with the contract of either Jefferies, or Bibby. The pacers would then give them a 3 year contract with only one year guaranteed. In the end the pacers would save 80% of the money they would owe Dahntay Jones. This deal may involve 2nd round picks or cash concessions to cover the salary.
Jefferies would be the most likely candidate since he is from Indiana ....
78 million for 8 years? Hell no. Brook Lopez is not going to take that deal...that's less than 10 mil/per, compared to the other deal, which is almost 15 per year.
If we could pick up some more SG depth...
Shooting Guards and Point Guards to look out for
Gary Forbes- friends with Melo and JR, fills a void, Houston is going to acquire him soon could make something happen
Dahntay Jones- another former Nugget, Pacers may loo to shed salary
Terrence Williams- Igoudala-lite.....All potential limited progress, could be a great signing for us, he idolizes Magic Johnson and loves differing
Josh Selby- Memphis drafted Tony Wroten and will play him with Conley and Allen. Selby while loaded with potential wont find the opportunity in Memphis also they like Lester Hudson. Could be a steal and he's also one of Melo's boys
Walker Russell Jr.- He'll likely start for us in Summer League and if proves he can make good decisions and handle a team he can be a very good 3rd PG who plays every 10 days and plays about 10 minutes on back to backs to help spell Kidd
I thought Tyson was overpaid, Hibbert's & Lopez's contract are making Amare's look normal.
