The Knicks are looking to fill out their roster for the upcoming season and they would like to use their final spot(s) to reinforce some positions of need. Center Cole Aldrich will be brought back for a second workout this week after looking strong in his last audition, according to Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report (via Twitter). Meanwhile, the club is also eyeing some athletic wing players (link) as they will be without J.R. Smith for at least the early part of the season.
A source told Zwerling that the Knicks "are definitely taking a long look at the Kansas product." Aldrich could wind up filling a major role for the Knicks this season as they have no true backup at center. Other notable names that have been linked to the job include DeSagana Diop, Ike Diogu, and Hassan Whiteside.
Meanwhile, the Knicks will comb the open market for athletic wings because they have some questions about undrafted rookie C.J. Leslie in the long-term.
