Rumor: Knicks shopping for a backup point guard

Written by BigC on . Posted in Basketball Blogs

(Big C) With the Knicks offense looking stagnant when Felton is not on the court, it looks like the Knicks are looking for a backup point guard. According to the New York Times the Knicks are looking for a backup point guard at a low cost. Here is what was reported by the New York Times:

"The Knicks have made inquiries to other teams in search of a low-cost backup point guard to preserve the starter Raymond Felton, according to two N.B.A. executives with knowledge of the organization’s discussions. The Knicks are looking at players whose contract expires at the end of the season in order to keep their salary-cap space for the summer. They are willing to part with Bill Walker, according to the executives. "-New York Times

 

This rumor does seem logical. Especially with Bill Walker not getting any minutes in the last few games. Right now the Knicks mostly use Douglas as a shooting guard not really at point. So therefore it would only help the Knicks if they can get a backup point that can setup the offense well in the halfcourt set and most importantly push the ball.
