The Knicks and free agent center Earl Barron have mutual interest in reuniting, reports Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York, who cites a source close to Barron. Barron spent a brief amount of time with New York late last season, appearing in only one game, and also played with the team in 2009/10. He has played for six other NBA teams, including the Wizards early last season.
Zwerling says the signing of Jeremy Tyler may not preclude them from bringing in Barron as well, especially with the Nets and Pacers both beefing up their frontcourts. The source indicates that Barron has received five other NBA camp invites and has international options, but will wait to hear from the Knicks before deciding anything and would accept a minimum salary offer from them. Barron and the Knicks have met several times this offseason, according to the source.
