'DOG' CALLS IT QUITS
Jerome Williams is expected to announce his retirement today. Williams will meet this morning with Knicks president Isiah Thomas, who will offer him a job as part-time scout, part-time community relations executive and part-time broadcaster for MSG Network.
Williams, waived under the amnesty clause that saved the Knicks $21 million in luxury tax, has told confidants he doesn't want to pick up and move again to a new city, unless he gets a whopping offer.
The $21 million left on Williams' contract is all guaranteed. The "Junkyard Dog," a fan favorite because of his dogged play, has health issues, including a tendon tear in his foot he played through late last season and knee problems, both of which could require surgery.
