As the Knicks fill their roster with returning players and a new PF in Andrea Bargnani, some holes still appear. With not much left in the bank, the New York Knicks need to add a PG, PF/C and a SF. Small forward, which was occupied by Steve Novak and Chris Copeland this past season, is about to go through another transformation. Steve Novak has been traded in the Bargnani deal, and fan favorite Chris Copeland might be leaving for greener pastures and larger amounts of “coin”.
Who is out there at small forward? With the likes of players like Matt Barnes, Francisco Garcia and Shawne Williams, one player comes to mind: Carlos Delfino.
Stats: 10.6 ppg, 37.5 3P% Savvy veteran that likes to shoot the three and handles the ball well. Can’t keep up with other players at the wing position in terms of athleticism.
Carlos is a native of Argentina, he stands at 6’6” 230 pounds and has been in the league for 7 years. Carlos is a decent defender, can hit the open three and is an all around NBA player with solid passing skills. His biggest asset is his “butter like” shooting stroke, and his passion for the game. With the chance to play along his fellow countryman, Pablo Prigioni, the New York Knicks have a real shot to sign the SF/SG for the veterans minimum.

If Amar’e Stoudemire wasn’t sure how the New York Knicks felt about him, the team’s offseason actions should provide a big hint.
The Knicks recently completed a trade with the Toronto Raptors for forward Andrea Bargnani. The move will ship Steve Novak, Marcus Camby and a 2016 first round pick to Toronto.
The Knicks are also reportedly interested in free agent forward Elton...

You would think after this move, the Knicks will look to add a SF very soon. Francisco Garcia is an option, Garcia is a better defender than he...

The Knicks went into last season with a roster full of one-way specialists. While this strategy worked extremely well in spurts for the Knicks, the ramifications of such players came full circle in the playoffs. The amount of limited players on the Knicks team also made it difficult for Mike Woodson to set a rotation. Whether he was searching for offense or defense...
We’ve heard a little about the players that the Cavaliers are pursuing in free agency, including Earl Clark and Darren Collison, Chauncey Billups, Greg Oden, and Nikola Pekovic, but a new name has emerged as a frontcourt option. ESPN New York’s Jared Zwerling reports that the Cavaliers may be prepared to offer New York Knicks center Chris Copeland a multi-year contract.
The New York Knicks are looking for a small forward who can shoot from three-point range and defend on the wing, according to a league source.
The Knicks have expressed interest in Carlos Delfino, Francisco Garcia and Dahntay Jones.
After signing Pablo Prigioni, the Knicks have about $1.7 million of their mid-level exception to use on free agents.
After discussions with the Indiana Pacers since the start of free agency, free agent forward Chris Copeland hasn’t received a contract proposal from the organization and will continue talks on Wednesday, a league source told RealGM.
Copeland has been one of the most sought after wing players in free agency, and he has received multiple offers from other teams that he’ll consider...
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported that the Indiana Pacers continue to improve their bench with the addition of former New York Knick Chris Copeland.
The Pacers have reached a two-year agreement worth, with a $6.1 million offer sheet with the free-agent forward. While Copeland is a restricted free agent, the Knicks will be unable to match this offer sheet according to Wojnarowski...
Knicks restricted free agent Chris Copeland is reportedly finalizing an offer sheet with the Pacers for a 2-year deal worth $6 million, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. The Knicks, who extended a qualifying offer for one year at $988,872 will have 3 days to match when it is inked on July 10.

According to a report via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Indiana Pacers have swiped one of the New York Knicks key contributors from last season.
The Indiana Pacers have reached agreement on a two-year, $6.1 million offer sheet with New York Knicks free-agent forward Chris Copeland, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Chris Copeland has agreed to sign a two-year, $6.1 million deal with the Indiana Pacers.
The New York Knicks will be unable to match despite Copeland's status as a restricted free agent.
Toronto Raptors fans have to be rejoicing from hearing the news about the departure of the frustrating Andrea Bargnani. For seven seasons as a Raptor he lived up to his “potential” for just about two seasons. His downward demise was a for sure thing once Masai Ujiri took to the helm. It isn’t hard to believe the “Il Mago” played only 35 games for the Toronto Raptors this...
He wanted to come back.
The team adamantly let it be known they wanted him back.
So, it is no shock that David West and the Indiana Pacers have reached a verbal agreement to finalize a 3-year deal, worth a reported $36 million according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Instead, the shocker could come for another member of the Pacers now that West is back.
In the event that Chris Copeland walks away form the New York Knicks for more money, do the Knicks reach out to Matt Barnes? According to sources, reps for Barnes have contacted the Knicks to show their interest. Barnes, the former Knick (a few weeks during the Larry brown era) could fill a hole at the small forward position.
What He Brings:
With the addition of Shawne Williams ...
Now that the Dwight Howard saga has apparently ended, the New York Knicks and the rest of the league will step up their final push to free agency and snatch up the remaining players. In the Knicks case they still have some unresolved business. Chris Copeland is still sought after by many teams, and it seems that the Knicks are priced out of the Cope market. It looks to me that they...
