It’s been an eventful day for Knicks content so far at Hoops Rumors. In addition to discussing the club in a pair of notes posts, I also explored possible solutions for the team’s depleted frontcourt. News of Tyson Chandler‘s injury has plenty more updates coming out of New York, so let’s round up the latest:
- The last update we heard on Earl Barron had him signing with a Chinese team in September, but Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York indicates that the big man has returned stateside and would be “excited” about any interest from the Knicks (Twitter links). New York’s coaching staff reportedly wanted the front office to sign Barron before he landed in China.
- In a long piece on the Knicks, Grantland’s Zach Lowe suggests that teams with expendable bigs will be making “predatory calls” to GM Steve Mills today. Lowe lists Jason Maxiell (Magic), Ekpe Udoh (Bucks), Kevin Seraphin (Wizards), Kendrick Perkins (Thunder), and Kris Humphries (Celtics) among his possible trade candidates, but notes that any deal would be difficult.
- Mike Woodson isn’t constantly looking over his shoulder or worrying about his job security, despite the team’s sluggish start, as he told ESPN Radio today (link via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN New York).
- Harvey Araton of the New York Times suggests Jason Collins would be a good free agent fit for the Knicks, which is something I proposed earlier today.
