You may not have noticed, what with Langston Galloway and Alexey Shved tearing up the league like the bastard sons of the Rolls Royce backcourt, but the Knicks are actually quite thin at the guard position these days. Tim Hardaway Jr. has fought through a variety of injuries of late, while Jose Calderon doesn't appear ready to return anytime soon after straining his Achilles in February.
Now the Knicks might just be on the verge of doing what they should have done a month ago: sign a human basketball guard to fill out their roster. Per FOX Sports' Mike Fisher:
That's interesting, man! Ricky Ledo is a 22-year-old, 6'7" shooting guard who took an odd route to the pros. A McDonald's All American in high school, he was ruled ineligible at Providence during his freshman year due to academic issues, but still applied for the 2013 draft despite never playing a minute of college ball. Still, his talent was worthy of a second round pick.
Ledo played extremely sparingly during two seasons in Dallas and was released last month when the Mavericks signed...Amar'e Stoudemire:
Good for you, Ricky Ledo. I hope you become awesome at the playing of basketball...just not awesome enough to win the Knicks any games.
Update: It's official.
