    Default Knicks Sign Sun Yue

    The Knicks, searching for more size in the backcourt, have signed Sun Yue, a 6-foot-9 point guard, to a partly guaranteed contract, his agent, Charles Bonsignore, said. Sun spent last season as a reserve for the Los Angeles Lakers, who drafted him in the second round in 2007. The Knicks signed two other players to partly guaranteed deals: point guard Gabe Pruitt, who spent the last two seasons with Boston; and forward Warren Carter, who played overseas the last two years. All three will be invited to training camp, which begins Sept. 29 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

    I like this signing to be honest. A 6'9 point gaurd who can play multiple postions.

    This is actually a pretty good signing. He's a decent player and he can shoot the ball really well.

    just another body for training camp.... I saw this guy in china during the olympics and he was decent but wayyyYYYYYY far from being NBA ready.... In LA i'm sure he was the locker room b*tch.

    What is it with Walsh, his signings make no sense. Sun Yue is a scrub, he's not fast enough to play PG and not strong enough to play a wing. He depends on that outside shot, but if you pressure him, his percentage goes down. Only reason you sign him is to get those Chinese sponsor deals and attract more Chinese fans, Yi is making a fortune for the Nets.

    I think we should give this a kid a shot cause if he becomes a decent player he will create a lot of pg mis matches and i think thats good.

    It's just a training camp move... if it works out and he can contribute its a major plus... If he doesn't do anything and we cut him after camp it also doesn't hurt at all.

    Its no risk high reward situation...

    China vs. USA 2008 Olympics. Sun Yue highlights. Nice block on Melo.

    So I guess Morris Almond will not get a camp invite as well as Joe Crawford? I would have liked to see Morris Almond. He shot really well in the summer league and showed he can do more than shoot, like defend.

    I hope he makes the team. I'm so sick of seeing the same type of players over and over again. I think this guy can bring something different, atleast a different kind of suck.

    You just described Al Harrington. So why do we need Sun Yue? Then again, it is a non-guaranteed contract so whatever.

    Unfortunately, I don't think either are in the future plans for the Knicks.

    This is the last piece of the jigsaw puzzle to land King James in 2010.

    Default Sun Yue

    If he was good enough to sit at the end of the Laker bench, he is good enough to sit at the end of our bench.

    Although Dirk was being sarcastic about Yue being the piece of the puzzle that will land King James, it will not hurt. Things are happening in China and basketball is big. King James wants more than center stage in New York. A connection with his team and China will not hurt LeBron's image worldwide.
