Everybody wants to play for the Knicks!

First, on a more serious note, check out Howard Beck's piece on Chauncey Billups, who is understandably bummed that he and his giant suitcase of money are once again lumped into trade rumors centered around a bigger name. Chauncey doesn't want to go anywhere, and he's not the only one who thinks New York is the place to be...

Wilson Chandler and his agent would love to return!


"The first consideration would go to his current team, the Nuggets," Luchey said. "After that, Wilson will field interest from the Knicks. He had a great time in New York, he has a very strong fan base there, he grew there."

J.J. Barea wants in as well!

"I always said the Knicks would be a great second option. I love the city. I love the way they're playing now, their style of play with D'Antoni, the players over there," said Barea, who was in Punta Cana to support slugger David Ortiz’s annual charity golf tournament. "We’ll see. I know Carmelo more than Amar’e. I think after (D’Antoni became coach), I said, ‘That would be a great fit for me.’"

And don't forget Bostjan Nachbar!

Nachbar always has wanted to play in New York.

"I think he’d be a good fit in New York because he knows Mike’s system and he has a good relationship with him,’’ agent Marc Cornstein said.

Guys! This is so great! I'm sure all of these players and their agents respect the Knicks' financial situation and long-term goals and would happily accept small contracts. I'm thinking the full MLE for Boki, then one-year veteran's minimum contracts for Wil and Barea (Jamal Crawford and Grant Hill will take the others). Perhaps even a few "I <3 NY" t-shirts to sweeten the deal. Excellent!
