Knicks, Others Eye Kevin Seraphin

The Knicks, Lakers and Wizards continue to show interest in Kevin Seraphin, league sources tell Michael Scotto of SheridanHoops (Twitter link). Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports reported interest from the Lakers early this month, and Scotto added the Wizards a few days later, but this appears to be the first time New York has come up in connection with the center.

The Knicks are also among the teams with interest in Carlos Boozer, but it’s not clear if New York sees the pair of big men as an either-or proposition. The Knicks and Lakers have their $2.814MM room exception available, but the Wizards have his Bird rights, so they can outbid other teams.

The Wizards were expected earlier this month to attempt to find a team willing to sign-and-trade for Seraphin, a maneuver that would ostensibly allow Washington to create a trade exception. In any case, Seraphin seemed a long shot to return to the Wizards at season’s end, as he’s reportedly been looking for a chance to compete for the starting job, though, according to Scotto, Washington at least touched base with him this month. The Wizards have Marcin Gortat entering year two of a five-year deal to man the pivot. Starting would also be a difficult proposition for Seraphin in New York, where free agent signee Robin Lopez seems firmly entrenched, and the same is probably true of the Lakers, who traded for Roy Hibbert.

The Suns and Mavericks also reportedly showed interest earlier this month, though it’s unclear if they’re still in the mix. The Spurs apparently had tentative interest in case David West signed elsewhere, but West took the minimum to play for San Antonio.

Which team needs Seraphin the most: The Knicks, Lakers or Wizards? Leave a comment to let us know.

    the wiz need him the most. they are dark horse contender in east and have no low post scorer. he just needs to be given more minutes. nene and blair will not be good enough to fit their needs. (wiz fan here)

    • Chuck Myron

      I think the Wizards would ideally like to use Nene for a lot of backup center duties this year, but if Seraphin is available cheaply, why not bring him back? Your argument makes sense.

    The Cavs. As the third center of the team. In case Varejao get injured. For the minimum he is no risk, plus he share the same agent with Lebron and T. Thompson.

    • Dana Gauruder

      The Cavaliers are trying to shed salary and Seraphin will sign with a team where he’ll get some steady action.

  3. Nelson Ramos

    Knicks need him most. By signing him the back up center problem will be resolve. A versatile team is almost completed. Remember he started as PF and know is a Center. A solid and defensive one. Defense, youth and defensive mind oriented team is what this new Knicks are assembling. This guy has motor and not afraid of playing physical. Upside potential. For that price and his performance am excellent player. With him this team is basketballer.

    Knicks he couldn’t be a starter at PF!

    I don’t see him ahead of K. O’Quinn on the Knick’s Depth chart so he would not get much playing time. They have similar scoring, rebounding and blocking stats per 48 minutes but O’Quinn is a much better passer while Seraphin is known as a ball stopper. I would much rather see us go after Boozer short term to help boost the record (for next years F\A class) and mentor our young forwards.
