According to Jared Zwerling NY has been talking to Jannero Pargo. Jannero is a journeyman PG with good defensive skills and a decent motor, but nothing to write home about. The interesting name in this article is that of Ivan Johnson. We here at the Swag have written recent articles about him as being a possible addition. Getting Ivan in the orange and blue would be a steal in many ways. He has a high motor, a solid jumper, and the toughness to add to the likes of Tyson and Metta. If the Knicks can steal Ivan for the veteran’s minimum, NY could be one of the toughest defensive teams in the league. Stay tuned!

The New York Knicks made a fairly significant splash earlier this offseason when they acquired Andrea Bargnani from the Toronto Raptors. The 7-foot center has played in only 66 games over the past two seasons because of injuries, but he should be able provide the Knicks with some much-needed front court offense if healthy. While [...]
Jared Jeffries played on some of the best teams in Washington Wizards franchise history from 2002-06, even getting a chance to play alongside Michael Jordan as a rookie. Despite showing not too much more than tremendous hustle on defense, the New York Knicks signed him to a five-year $30 million deal in the summer of 2006, piling on the list of Isiah Thomas blunders.
While many outlets may be more focused if LeBron James will leave the Miami Heat in the future or not, here’s an article from the New York Post about Carmelo Anthony who makes it clear he’s not ready to predict if he will stay with the New York Knicks long-term or not. Or at least not right [...]The post Carmelo Anthony: Not Prepared to Consider Long-Term Future With New York...

According to Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York, the Knicks are reportedly in discussions with 33-year-old NBA journeyman, Jannero Pargo.
The 9-year NBA veteran point guard played with three different teams last season, but most recently averaged 8.4 points, 1.9 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 18 games with the Bobcats.
New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire worked on his post game with former Houston Rockets great Hakeem Olajuwon last off season and planned on doing so this summer too. The Knicks have squashed that though as they’d like to protect their oft-injured “star”. For those who’re thinking Olajuwon’s new position with the Rockets is the reason, it’s not.
