After releasing forward Metta World Peace and point guard Beno Udirh, the New York Knicks are searching for bodies.
According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Knicks have brought in swingman Dahntay Jones and could sign him in hopes he can provide defensive help.
The New York Knicks, with two roster spots open, are looking at veteran swingman Dahntay Jones, according to sources close to the situation.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Knicks brought Jones in for a first-hand look this week to assess the 33-year-old’s readiness for an immediate return to the NBA.
Stein goes on to describe Jones as “a pesky perimeter defender who won acclaim for that role as a teammate of Carmelo Anthony’s in Denver during the Nuggets’ run to the Western Conference finals in 2009.”
