A source familiar with the Knicks’ free-agency plans told ESPNNewYork.com that the team is considering signing forward-center Sean Williams, who was waived by the Rockets this week.
There has been some speculation that the Knicks are interested in unrestricted free agent Josh Howard, but according to the source, they are not into him. Instead, the team wants to add a big man — likely to serve as a backup to Amare Stoudemire on the depth chart. Currently, they don’t have one.
Its hard not to like what you see from Sean. He provides depth & shot blocking. He has had the 2nd best block rate in the NBA since 07-08, only trailing another guy the Knicks are targeting, Chris Anderson. For the veteran's minimum, Williams would be a steal. He would really help Amare with minutes. Hopefully Sean will pick NY.

N.Y. Knicks rising star Iman Shumpert took it wayyyyyy back as he tweeted a photo from his Instagram of himself headed to an 80′s party. Shump got the look down pat with his loud printed button-up, orange trousers, vintage glasses, I like how he spruced up his outfit with the 2 chainz!! and to top everything off, the legendary flat top hair cut. This would be considered being fresh...
The New York Knicks had a bumpy road since trading for Carmelo Anthony; they were swept in the 2011 NBA playoffs and finally won a game in last year’s playoffs against the Miami Heat, but would lose in five games.
