The Knicks have been talking with free agent big man Hamed Haddadi, a source tells Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com (via Twitter). However, their level of interest isn't quite known. Haddadi has never been great at running the floor and his game is predictably getting slower with time.
We learned yesterday that the club has discussed the big man internally, along with Cole Aldrich, Jerome Jordan, Gani Lawal, Shavlik Randolph, and Henry Sims. The Suns waived the Iranian center earlier this week and are on the hook for just $200K rather than the $1.4MM that they would have had to pay him had he been on the roster for 2013/14.
Haddadi finished last season strong after coming over from the Raptors at the deadline as he averaged 4.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game for Phoenix.
