New York Knicks Getting Inside 2009-11-21

New York Knicks Getting Inside 2009-11-21The Knicks were looking for answers, so they were strongly considering turning to The Answer.

Team president Donnie Walsh confirmed this week that the team was mulling a decision to sign Allen Iverson, who was placed on waivers by the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday. Walsh said the option was under consideration mainly because of the Knicks' franchise-worst 1-9 start.

Friday, however, the team announced that it would not sign Iverson after all. The reason: He would have taken away playing time from younger players who need to develop.

Signing Iverson was one of the few options the Knicks have had to improve the roster this season that doesn't impact the all-important bottom line in 2010. Iverson likely would have gotten get an offer of the veteran's minimum of $1.4 million, which would expire at the end of the season. Cap space is everything for the Knicks, but the chance to avoid a disastrous season before they make their pitch to top-level free agents such as LeBron James and Dwyane Wade is important as well.

"Whatever it takes to make us competitive right now, I think we'll do as an organization," coach Mike D'Antoni said earlier in the week. "But we're not going to mess up 2010. We've come too far to mess that up."

Ultimately, they decided that signing Iverson would indeed mess that up.

KNICKS 110, PACERS 103: Al Harrington scored 13 of his 26 points during a 23-3 fourth-quarter run that vaulted the Knicks to their second win of the season and ended a six-game losing streak. Larry Hughes added 22 points off the bench for the Knicks (2-9), who held Indiana to just 24.2 percent shooting in the second half after allowing 69 points in the first half. Danny Granger scored 33 points for the Pacers (5-4), but had just three in the second half.
