The Knicks are considering signing forward/center Sean Williams, a source familiar with the Knicks' free-agency plans told Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com. The big man was waived by the Rockets earlier this week before his $916K salary would have become guaranteed for 2012/13.
Yesterday we learned that the Timberwolves are also interested in Williams' services, though David Kahn is said to be talking to a number of agents. Anthony Tolliver, Mehmet Okur, and Hassan Whiteside are said to be among Minnesota's other targets in the frontcourt.
The report also notes that while there has been some speculation that the Knicks are interested in Josh Howard, a source says that's not the case. The Bobcats and Bulls have also been linked to the 32-year-old, but Charlotte's interest was termed "exploratory" at this stage.
