The NY Knicks are preparing for the start of training camp and the team is expected to contend for a spot in the NBA Playoffs this season, but the front office is still looking to add some depth and the latest rumor has the team looking at a former player to fill that need.
ESPN has reported that Shawne Williams is still looking for a new team for the upcoming season and the NY Knicks are one of the teams on his radar. Williams had his best season as a pro in New York two years ago when he averaged 7.1 points and 3.7 rebounds for the Knicks, but his numbers dropped last year with New Jersey to 4.5 points and 2.7 rebounds.
The 26-year-old forward is a solid bench player with decent skills on both ends of the floor and he would bring some much-needed depth to the team's front-court.
With New York looking to build up their roster and add some cheap depth, the former NBA first round draft pick has already stated he would sign for the veteran's minimum and the team would make a wise move in returning Williams to the team he has enjoyed his most success with.
