NBA training camps will open soon and a few free agents still remain unsigned. The NY Knicks have little room under the salary cap, but that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from spinning.
The latest from MSG Network has Chris Andersen looking to play for New York this season and the veteran center is willing to accept the veteran's minimum salary to continue his career.
The 34-year-old is coming off surgery, but his hustle and defensive skills would help the Knicks second unit and his hard work could also rub off on the team. Last year the veteran averaged 5.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in just 15 minutes of action each night.
The NY Knicks don't necessarily need help in the front-court, but it's not often that a quality player with good leadership skills offers his services. The team could use the depth in case of an injury and it wouldn't hurt the team adding the "Bird Man."
With the start of the NBA season quickly approaching, players like Andersen and Leandro Barbosa are still looking for a new team and injuries in training camp will likely see both veteran added to a roster.
