Cant say i know much about him, is this a good person to pick up if injury free?
Also are they saying we would be interested as the connection with Donnie or would be really be interested?
Jonathan Bender is plotting an NBA comeback after a injury-forced retirement.
Bender left the Pacers midway through the 2005-06 season because of persistent knee troubles that limited him to just 237 games in seven NBA seasons.
"My potential is still enormous and I can still do a lot for a team," Bender told ESPN.com. "If it happens, then everything flows. And if it doesn't, at least I tried."
Bender said he was encouraged by cousin Morris Peterson of the New Orleans Hornets and various friends to make a comeback.
"I didn't want the windows to close on me," Bender said. "I wanted the opportunity to fight off the demons inside my head ... I read these articles that say, 'He's the top bust' or 'He's one of the guys who didn't live up to their potential.' I don't want to be 38 or 40 looking back thinking, 'I should've done this.'"
Donnie Walsh and the Knicks would likely be interested in signing Bender.
