Knicks to Sign & Trade J-Will?

That’s the latest word on Rumor Street: “The Knicks have until Thursday to negotiate exclusively with ex-Clipper Jason Williams, who has decided to end his retirement. By claiming Williams on waivers, the Knicks acquired the Clippers’ exclusive negotiating rights. But a person with direct knowledge of the Knicks’ plans said they intend to trade Williams if they can reach agreement with him on a contract. Since they acquired his rights by claiming him on waivers, the Knicks wouldn’t have to wait the customary three months to trade him. It’s a risk-free way to acquire another minor asset without incurring any cost.”

    Knicks prefer dark chocolate?

    The chocoalte is for Eddy Curry, hes not picky.

    Damn, sounds like he’ll end up somewhere like the Thunder. White Chocolate Thunder.

    The Thunder already have a point guard coming back from injuries on the roster. His name is Shaun Livingston and he’s 10 years younger than J-Will.

    Why would Jason do this w/o checking out what other deals may be out there? Seems to me that he’d run the risk of ending up somewhere he doesn’t want to be instead of waiting to see if a contender is interested in his services. Sure, this works for the Knicks, but JWill’s a free agent and this doesn’t sound like a smart move to me. Am I missing something?

    How many jokes I posted, however bad: 1. Jokes Vittorio posted: 1/2, I think, if I give the benefit of the doubt on his facts in response. So onto the serious side, with all the facts – thrilling Thunder offseason news, the whole reason this post up was made – they also signed an even 5 years older than Jason, Kevin Ollie. Serious posts, more fun or less…

    Yo, Knicks should trade Whit Eboy for Shaun Livingston. THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME.

    I thought he might be moved for Earl Watson, another cheap “almost Andre Miller” like Duhon is but looked and saw he’s on the Pacers now. Don’t go swindling Raymond Felton out of Charlotte though, he’s like 2 Duhons and about 3/4 of an Andre Miller!

    back 2 MIA….maybe he can help out “Super”Mario Chalmers a bit…..wouldnt hurt 2 give it a shot

    i hope his knee is good now, because those last couple years were hard to watch.

    I don’t get why the Thunder would be interested. And from what I understand, Cheryl, the Knicks acquired the Clips the exclusive rights to sign JW. That’s why he can’t investigate other options as yet.

    Anyone know how long the Knicks have to sign him?

  • David

    Answering my own question – the article says they have until Thursday. And the Thunder aren’t mentioned anywhere. I think JWill would be fun to watch on the D’Antoni Knicks. Kind of hope that deal goes through and he stays.

    I enjoyed the Blinguo joke. It made me picture an albino Darryl Dawkins. Eeeeeew.

    Haha, even better with like the one gold Cross earring Barry Bonds/MJ style, wouldn’t work caucasian! Yeah, but not far off, when a season ago SLAM had those ESPN boardwalk artist comic like caricatures (sp?) alongside the roadtrip RV in ad pages. Dwight was like Milk Chocolate, couldn’t even recognize him. Kobe was paler than JKidd. “Vitalago”…

  • chintao

    I didn’t see those, but they sound disgusting. I might not be able to eat chocolate for a month or two.

  • chintao

    I’ll be scared it will suddenly go pale on me.
