NBA Rumors: New York Knicks Considering Sean Williams

According to a source close to the New York Knicks, they are considering signing former 2007 first round pick Sean Williams, who was waived by the Houston Rockets this past week. The Miami Heat and the Minnesota Timberwolves are also reported to have some interest in Williams, but the Knicks appear to be the better option for him since he would likely end up with a bigger role with New York if he were to sign with them.

There have also been rumors that the Knicks are interested in unrestricted free agent Josh Howard, but according to the source, they are not currently interested in him since the Knicks want to add a player to serve as a backup to Amare Stoudemire on the depth chart. Kurt Thomas and Chris Copeland are the only other power forwards on the current roster.

There are other power forwards on the free agent market, such as Kenyon Martin, Andray Blatche, Louis Amundson, Chris Andersen and D.J. White, but those players are reportedly asking for more money than the Knicks can offer, which is the veteran’s minimum.

Williams would be a much cheaper option as he made less than $1 million in 2011-12 with the Dallas Mavericks and Boston Celtics. His career averages are 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in four NBA seasons.

The Knicks have 15 players on their current roster, but Chris Smith’s contract will be up once preseason concludes. However, Williams can go to the Knicks’ training camp which will begin on September 29 since the NBA doesn’t have a limit on roster invites.
