Knicks Reportedly Interested in Sean Williams

by September 03, 2012

The New York Knicks are reportedly interested in free agent center Sean Williams, who was recently waived by the Houston Rockets. New York is looking to add a big man to backup Amar’e Stoudemire, and as of now, the team doesn’t have one on its roster. There are sexier names still on the market—such as Kenyon Martin, Andray Blatche, Louis Amundson and Chris Andersen—but Williams seems to be in New York’s price range. Via “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. There are more attractive bigs on the market, but those players have been looking for more than the veteran’s minimum, which is all the Knicks can offer. Williams, on the other hand, is in the Knicks’ price range. The former New Jersey Net, whose career averages are 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in four NBA seasons, made less than $1 million in 2011-12 with the Mavericks and Celtics. While the former 2007 first-round draft pick out of Boston College hasn’t made his mark yet in the league, Celtics coach Doc Rivers was impressed with his development last season. And that was on defense, which is Mike Woodson’s mantra.”
