Knicks Free Agency Rumors: Gary Forbes will work out for New York next week

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Knicks are evidently not done working guys out.

At this moment, the Knicks have 14 players on the hook. 12 guys have guaranteed contracts for next season, with Beno Udrih and his one-year minimum deal the most recent addition to that group. Two guys-- Jeremy Tyler and C.J. Leslie-- will have to earn their guaranteed money in training camp. In any event, up to 20 players can come to camp. To get from 14 to 20, the Knicks may make another guaranteed signing (perhaps a big man), they'll probably bring in some Summer Leaguers (Toure' Murry has an invite, Chris Smith seems bound to get one, too), and it increasingly seems like they'll invite some guys with NBA or D-League experience. They've done so many workouts with veteran players this summer, and word has it they're not done, via Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype:

Forbes, who's played all over the world but only briefly in the NBA (two years with the Nuggets and Raptors, which makes him a former teammate of like five Knicks), is a 28 year-old small forward who can hit some threes and finish and stuff. That is the extent of my scouting report on Forbes because I spent most of his NBA stint confusing him with Gary Neal.

Forbes is working out with the Lakers today before taking the cross-country covered wagon journey to New York. By the time he gets to Greenburgh, I imagine the Knicks will have found a few other bros to join him for a scrimmage.

Anyway, the upshot here is that the Knicks aren't done working guys out, and that we might see an NBA veteran or two attempt to initiate a career resurrection in training camp (The Extra E Maneuver) next month.
