    Yea, maybe Berman mis heard the source, meaning D - League, not D -Fense.

    According to Marc Spears, we are interested in Josh Howard, Chicago is the other named team...."amonst others."

    Now this could be coming from Howard's camp to drive up what little value he has left.

    Default Sean Williams?

    Williams was just waived by the Houston Rockets.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    I like him. 6'10", very athletic, always a very good shot-blocker, decent enough rebounder and from watching him in quite a few D-League games, his Israel clips etc., he's come a long way offensively. He can score around the hoops well and he's even developed a little mid-ranger jumper with some decent touch...Had a little cup of coffee with the the Mavs last year that didn't amount to anything...The Celtics then had him I believe, Houston, and now he's on the verge of clearing waivers and becoming a FA. I think he could be a nice athletic big-man to backup Amar'e. Imagine the rim protection we'd have on this team next year with Tyson, Camby, Sean Williams and Amar'e (STAT's actually a very good shot-blocker if he dedicates himself to it). We get Williams, we would always have a shot-blocker on the court at all times, most of the times 2. Thoughts?

    Yeah Sean Williams has major potential but will likely end up with the Heat in my opinion

    Would be nice for him to learn from Camby and Chandler though

    Josh Howard has been working out in Charlotte this week, according to sources.

    Howard is from Winston-Salem.

    Howard is also drawing interest from the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.

    Howard played for the Utah Jazz last season.

    heard about the howard interest... How do we feel about howard? he'd fit in well with the old age home feeling of this roster but is he a scoring threat we need behind amar'e as the PF?

    I dunno, we already have Shump, Brewer, and JR. Its gonna be hard for him to get a rotation spot. But what the heck, I'd have no problem if he took Chris Smith's spot.

    A source familiar with the Knicks' free-agency plans told ESPNNewYork.com that the team is considering signing forward-center Sean Williams, who was waived by the Rockets this week.

    There has been some speculation that the Knicks are interested in unrestricted free agent Josh Howard, but according to the source, they are not into him. Instead, the team wants to add a big man -- likely to serve as a backup to Amare Stoudemire on the depth chart. Currently, they don't have one.

    There are more attractive bigs on the market, like Kenyon Martin, Andray Blatche, Louis Amundson, Chris Andersen and D.J. White. But those players have been looking for more than the veteran's minimum, which is all the Knicks can offer.

    Williams, on the other hand, is in the Knicks' price range. The former New Jersey Net, whose career averages are 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in four NBA seasons, made less than $1 million in 2011-12 with the Mavericks and Celtics. While the former 2007 first-round draft pick out of Boston College hasn't made his mark yet in the league, Celtics coach Doc Rivers was impressed with his development last season. And that was on defense, which is Mike Woodson's mantra.

    "He has a chance to be a shut-down defender, a shot-blocker, a guy that you can bring in and change the tempo of the game," Rivers said in July. "He rebounds the ball. He has that skill set in him. He has to marry himself to that."

    While the Knicks technically have 15 players on their roster, Chris Smith, J.R. Smith's younger brother, is only under contract through the preseason. Williams, who's also reportedly on the Heat's radar, could be the team's final signing. Regardless, the Knicks can bring him to training camp (which starts Sept. 29) because the NBA has no limit on invites.

    Guys like him aren't looking to win a ring, they want playing time and some security. If I was him I would come to NY, vets like Rashard Lewis are going to want to go to Miami every year to win a ring. In NY he could be the successor to Thomas if he plays well.

    Great video! I got giddy watching it. Think we should get him, if Amare goes down Melo/Williams and Thomas would be sufficient fill ins, plus once Shump returns Brewer will likely back up Melo. I think Williams will be a great pick up and will bring more athleticism to compliment the veteran presence on the front court.

    James White/Copeland/Williams is a good youthful batch of athelticism to go with our starters and he is a great 3rd string option if he doesn't make the back up role.
