Sun Yue, too.

The Knicks are making a third addition to the training camp roster. Sun Yue, the lanky point guard out of China, will join the club in Saratoga on a partially guaranteed contract, Howard Beck reports. Sun played sparingly with the Lakers last year, but stuck around long enough to become the first ethnic Chinese player to win an NBA title (I can't seem to find who the first champion from China was, but I'd like to know). Sun's a longshot to ever get backcourt minutes, but the idea of a spindly 6'9'' guard running amok in the D'Antoni offense is intriguing, even if, as Mr. Sham says, "he's not a good shooter, he's very weak, he can't and won't rebound, he doesn't understand positioning at all, and his defense is amongst the worst you've ever seen". Actually, reading Mark's analysis just pretty much drained all the intrigue from the signing, but whatever.

Between this signing and that of former Celtic Gabe Pruitt, it's clear that Donnie Walsh is committed to adding some championship experience to his middling team. Lovely.
