Ranking NY Knicks’ Best Options for Final Roster Spot

September 6th, 2013 by Ciaran Gowan Leave a reply »
Despite having their spending limited to only the taxpayers' exception and veteran's minimum contracts, the New York Knicks have had a fantastic offseason, getting deeper or younger at every single position.

Looking at the Knicks' roster, it's hard to point out any major weaknesses, but with one roster spot left to fill, they'd be wise to add another big man.

Preferably, New York will be looking for someone who can play at center, as right now Jeremy Tyler (who, according to ESPN, will miss 8-10 weeks following foot surgery) is the only back-up they have for Tyson Chandler.

However, since they do have other players capable of playing at the 5 if needed, anyone who can rebound and play physical defense will do.

Options tend to be thin at this point in the offseason, but the Knicks aren't looking for a superstar here.

They simply need another role player who can step into the rotation when injuries happen. And there are still some free agents out there who can do just that.
