Perhaps J.R. Smith isn't enough of a wild card for the Knicks organization. Ricky Davis, who last appeared in an NBA game in 2010, will be in mini-camp with New York this week, according to Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report (on Twitter).
Davis, who turns 34 in a couple of weeks, will go up against nine other camp hopefuls looking to hook on with the already crowded Knicks. New York isn't the first club to audition the veteran – the Timberwolves also gave him a look back in January. The 6'6" guard didn't catch on in Minnesota, but he looked back on the experience with positivity and class.
"They signed [Mickael] Gelabale for the whole year," Davis told Jonathan Abrams of Grantland. "I played with him in France, so that really makes me sick. That makes me really sick. That really hurts. They signed him for the whole year."
Across 12 NBA seasons, Davis averaged 13.5 PPG, 3.5 RPG, and 3.3 APG in 29.8 minutes per contest.
