Another week passes and still the New York Knicks are still without a third point guard on their roster.
Names like Bobby Brown and Toure Murry are still being thrown around, but the Knicks look like they still have their eyes on a hometown product.
According to Alex Kennedy at HoopsWorld, the Knicks still remain very interested in point guard Sebastian Telfair.
Telfair has talked to several teams since free agency began. The New York Knicks have been in contact with the 28-year-old, and he would love to play for them since he’s from New York and currently owns a home about 30 minutes away from Madison Square Garden. Not only did the Knicks reach out to Telfair’s camp, members of the organization also spoke directly to the point guard to express their interest.
While the Knicks remain Telfair’s desired destination, he also has interest in joining other contenders, most notably the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder, both of which who have also shown interest in the nine-year veteran.
It looks as if he has no interest in joining a non-contending team as reports indicate he could have already signed with multiple teams by this point.
Telfair split last season between Phoenix and Toronto where he combine to average 5.6 points and 2.3 assists per game. Over the course of his nine-year career he has posted averages of 7.4 points and 3.5 assists per game and has never been to the postseason once in his career.
