Knicks Among Teams Watching Delonte West

by March 16, 2013

Delonte West is scheduled to be in uniform for the Texas Legends on Saturday, and the New York Post reports the Knicks are among the teams monitoring West’s play: “The Knicks aren’t that desperate yet, but will be one of the teams monitoring the progress of mercurial point guard Delonte West, expected to make his D-League debut tonight when the Texas Legends host the Santa Cruz Warriors. West is a super talent and super headache, but, at 29, a relative pup by Knicks standards. He hasn’t played all season but was effective last year with Dallas. The Knicks haven’t been thrilled with their point-guard play since Christmas, with Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd falling back to Earth, Iman Shumpert not being a reliable scorer and playmaking rookie Pablo Prigioni not enough of an offensive threat. The Knicks don’t have a roster spot and rehabbing Rasheed Wallace is on the West Coast trip for ‘moral support,’ coach Mike Woodson said. Woodson acknowledged he will sit down with general manager Glen Grunwald after the trip to explore options. Wallace would have to be cut to open a roster spot.”
