Knicks Notes: Point Guards, Douglas, Thomas

The Knicks find themselves with a mini-break after handling the Magic on Thursday night with a 96-80 victory.  They'll be back in action on Sunday and led by a familiar face at the point.  More on that and other items out of MSG..

  • Coach Mike Woodson says the team will not add a point guard, reports Jacob Zwerling of He believes the combination of Baron Davis, Toney Douglas and Mike Bibby, along with Iman Shumpert if necessary, is "plenty."
  • General Manager Glen Grunwald looked to trade point guard Toney Douglas at the deadline but couldn’t find value for him as his stock had plummeted, writes Marc Berman of the New York Post.  Douglas has a year left on his pact at $2MM and is the only Knicks one-guard who isn’t a free agent after this season.  The Florida State product is now seeing regular time due to Jeremy Lin's season-ending injury.
  • Ian Begley of wonders if the Knicks might consider bringing Isiah Thomas back to New York now that he has been let go as coach of Florida International University.  Begley points to owner James Dolan's admiration for the former Knicks coach/exec and his attempt to hire him as a consultant less than two years ago.
  • Meanwhile, Berman doesn't expect the Knicks to offer Thomas a gig.  According to sources, Dolan isn’t ready to name Thomas to a formal position, even with Donnie Walsh’s position soon coming to an end.  Walsh has been granted permission by the club to explore GM opportunities elsewhere.
