Unrestricted free agent Gary Forbes is expected to work out for the Knicks next week, after working out for the Lakers today, according to Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype (Twitterlinks). Both teams only have minimum-salary slots to offer free agents, so if either team were to bring Forbes aboard, it would have to be for the veteran’s minimum or on a training-camp invite.
Forbes, 28, spent two seasons in the NBA, playing for the Nuggets in 2010/11 and the Raptors in 2011/12. In 111 career games, the 6’7″ forward averaged 5.8 PPG and 2.0 RPG to go along with a decent 12.4 PER in 13.5 minutes per contest.
Forbes was sent to Houston by Toronto in the deal that netted the Raptors Kyle Lowry, and was released by the Rockets before spending the 2012/13 season playing international ball. He averaged 28.4 PPG and 7.8 RPG in 27 games for China’s Zhejiang Guangsha Lions.
NY in need of a quality big man to work out Forbes? I am not sure why they would want to add another SF to an already heavy “swingman” roster. Forbes is a decent end of the bench spot minutes player. Having him on your team cannot hurt, but with the Knicks desperate need of a ‘big” to spell Tyson, NY will look at that position first.

Mike Woodson touched on some of Knicks basketball most pressing issues:
Woody not committing to Shumpert as the starting SG could be posturing. Or it could mean Woody will go w/a 2 PG alignment w/Shump at SF

Granted, about the only reason why somebody would make a NBA 2K13 simulation featuring Miami Heat star Chris Bosh transformed into an 8-foot-tall, basketball-playing Raptor stems from the fact that Bosh spent his first seven NBA seasons as a member of the Toronto Raptors organization. Other than that, it’s simply awesome and no further reasoning […]The post Chris Bosh transformed...
