The New York Knicks still have a couple of contracts to hand out before training camp begins and continue to bring in players that could potentially fill a small role on next year’s club.
They did that on Wednesday by holding workouts for a couple veteran big men in Sean May and D.J. White.
May, 29, was selected 13th overall by the Bobcats in the 2005 draft. However, the UNC product ended up only playing a total of 119 NBA games with Charlotte and Sacramento, most recently in 2009/10, before heading overseas.
Last season May played for Paris-Levallois, averaging 18.4 PPG and 7.8 RPG in 29 French League contests.
White was a first-round pick of the Detroit Pistons in 2008 and also has had problems making a name for himself in the NBA, although he is a bit more functional and could add to the Knicks bench.
He has played for three teams (Oklahoma City, Charlotte and Boston) during his five-year NBA career, which he has posted averages of 6.0 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. However his Per 36 minute averages of 13.9 points and 7.5 rebounds suggests that he can be a bit productive when given the opportunity.
The Knicks also worked out guards Bobby Brown and Lester Hudson on Wednesday, which marked the third time they have taken a look at the Euroleague sensation Brown.
It’s all but assured the Knicks sign a point guard with one of their final two roster spots and I would expect them to add a big man as well, even though they did sign Jeremy Tyler to a two-year deal on Tuesday.
Who those player will be is still up in the air as the Knicks search for talent continues.
