NBA Rumors: Josh Howard to NY Knicks?
The NY Knicks are entering the 2012-13 NBA season with high expectations, but the team still has a need for depth at small forward and the latest rumor of the team looking to add veteran Josh Howard.
Howard averaged nearly nine points and four rebounds last season for the Utah Jazz with just 22 minutes of action. The 32-year-old plays terrific defense and would make a good addition for the NY Knicks.
The former first round draft pick has averaged nearly 14 points per game in his career and though he will never match the numbers he put up Dallas between 2005-10, he will give the team a much-needed small forward to play behind Carmelo Anthony and his signing would only help the team's shot at making the playoffs.
The NBA free agent market is very thin after a busy summer, but role players like Howard are still available and can help teams looking for depth. Howard won't cost much in salary and his experience will help any team that signs the veteran before the start of the upcoming basketball season.
