Okay, so your Steve Nash/Jeremy Lin updates and thread for now can be found below. This here thread is for the other folks. Here's what's up with the other folks:

- Future SummerKnick Chris Smith guessed that his brother, J.R. Smith, would return to New York, so there's that.

- This is a couple days old (missed it the first time around), but Marc J. Spears reported that the Knicks were interested in both Rashard Lewis and Brandon Bass. This is where I remind you that the Knicks get lumped into a lot of "interest" lists, which isn't always meaningful. Agents like to name-drop the Knicks to push other teams. This is why I'm not even mentioning the reported Grant Hill interest (but yeah, the Knicks are reportedly interested in Grant Hill again).

- On that note (and mentioned in the last thread), Marcus Camby is still a thing. Camby joining the Knicks would probably mean accepting less than his market value and it'd definitely mean settling for a reserve role.

- P&T citizen KnightandDaye directed us to this interview (in Spanish) with Pablo Prigioni's agent, Claudio Villanueva. If you don't know about Prigioni, he's a 35 year-old Argentinean point guard who's been talking to the Knicks about a stint in the U.S. after a wonderful career in Spain. From the interview with Villanueva, we learn that the Knicks met with both Prigioni and his wife, gave Pablo a physical (his wife probably didn't get the same treatment), and even suggested some schools for the little Prigionis (Prigionitos?). It sounds like Prigioni and company are still making up their minds-- I'm sure that they're waiting to see what happens with Jeremy Lin and Steve Nash-- but Villanueva is certain that Prigioni would be able to help the Knicks "con los ojos cerrando y caminando para atrás", which is pretty baller.

- In other foreign people news, a gentleman named Kostas Xydias (who writes for a Turkish news site) reminded me that Georgios Printezis is a free agent and suggested that he's actually considering the Knicks (as well as Fenerbahce and a return to Olympiacos). We've heard previously that Printezis would only come over for a relatively substantial contract, so take this information for what it's worth. I can't really vouch for its validity. (Oh, and the Knicks also got a thumbs-up for the Papanikolaou pick, so that's cool.)

Yeap. Updates as they come! Let me know if you see anything, friends. <3
