The New York Knicks parted ways with David Lee in 2010, allowing the power forward to sign with the Golden State Warriors so New York could sign Amare Stoudemire.
Needless to say, it was a bad decision for the Knicks as Lee thrived in California while Stoudemire – after a very solid season – has struggled to stay on the floor thanks to injury.
Now with Lee set to become a free agent and the Knicks to have cap space in 2015, could the two sides reconnect? It seems to be a possibility according to a source speaking to Marc Berman.
Per the New York Post:
Lee, the Warriors power forward, will be a free agent in 2016 and one person familiar with his thinking said he’s aware of the Knicks’ cap situation. They will have plenty of cap space and will be looking to reload starting in 2015.
Unless the Warriors make some roster changes, they’re going to have some hefty financial decisions to make in the coming years in regards to the contracts of Harrison Barnes and Klay Thompson and Lee, despite his solid play has been rumored to be on the trade block for quite some time.
