New York Knicks Express Interest in Anyone with Pulse
The Knicks have been laughably bad for a while - until they landed Amare Stoudemire. Then his career went south and the Knicks are still paying him $20 million a season. Sound all too familiar? Well, if you're a Knicks fan, I'm sure you're cringing while simultaneously yelling at Allan Houston through the computer screen.
Then they traded their team for Carmelo Anthony - setting their team back again because, well, they had no supporting cast anymore - they were shipped to Denver. Now, after Jason Kidd retired and became head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, the Knicks did the only logical thing they could do: trade for the majorly disappointing former #1 overall pick, Andrea Bargnani - because, well, he could be good, right?
Who else might they be interested in? Oh, there's a freakishly tall un-athletic big man left in the free agent market? He used to play professionally for a few teams, so he's got to be worth the roster spot, right?
Hamed Haddadi - the Iranian national who has yet to make an impact in his 5 NBA seasons, averaging 2.2 points and 2.5 rebounds for his career. He has never averaged more than 7 minutes per game, except for 17 games of last season when he was moved from Memphis to Phoenix - and the Suns were already tanking. So the Knicks see length and lack of strength and Dolan's wallet opens up with ease.
