Yesterday, Knicks coach Mike Woodson told reporters that the ailing Knicks expect to stand pat for now, but may reconsider their options if Rasheed Wallace and Kurt Thomas aren't close to getting healthy when the playoffs approach. That decision has inspired plenty of discussion, which is the focus of today's round of Knicks-related links….
- At ESPNNewYork.com, Ian Begley asks whether the Knicks are making the right decision by standing pat. As Begley notes, it's not like the current free agent market features a bevy of future All-Stars.
- Thomas feels like there's only about a 50-50 chance he'll be able to return in time for the start of the postseason, as Marc Berman of the New York Post writes.
- Nate Taylor of the New York Times examines a few top options in the D-League that should be available if they Knicks decide to make a roster move.
- One of the Knicks' few healthy bigs, Kenyon Martin, had been seeking a mini mid-level contract for most of the season, says Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com. Other teams had interest in the former first overall pick, but not at his asking price. After eventually signing for the minimum with New York, Martin has now become a part of the team's starting lineup.
