Patrick in New York:
You reported earlier this week that free agent point guard Julyan Stone would be meeting with the Knicks front office on Thursday. Did the Knicks sign him. Is he getting a training camp invite? Alex Kennedy:
Stone met with the Knicks on Thursday morning, and they told him not to go overseas. They want him to come to their training camp whenever the lockout ends and they told him that he'll have a legitimate chance to make their team. Stone is going to wait out the work stoppage and then see what happens during training camp.

Interesting. I remember hearing about interest in him before. I mean, any 6'7" PG intrigues me. Imagine running Shumpert and Stone... that would be a massive backcourt. Also, it shows a lot of interest if he's willing to forgo international bball in a lockout.
At least we got some non-lockout stuff to talk about.
