From the NY Post:
Walsh has had advanced discussions regarding Rockets shooting guard Von Wafer, according to his agent Raymond Brothers. Wafer was a surprise last season, averaging 9.7 points. Ironically, the former 2005 Lakers' second-round pick played for the Knicks summer league team in 2008 and barely sawaction.
A source said the parties were trying to arrange a Knick visit for Wafer, 24. Walsh is interested in a one-year deal, possibly for biannual exception ($2.9 million).
Look, Donnie. If you really want a guard on the cheap, just get it out of the way and sign Jason Williams. This is getting to be ridiculous! Walsh is afraid to make any signings that would help the Knicks in the long run (ex: Ramon Sessions, David Lee) and is just waiting for next year to do it.
Do it now, Donnie! How is Von Wafer for a year better than Sessions for four? How do Grant Hill, Jason Kidd and Jamaal Tinsley fit into the future better than David Lee?
I'm starting to get restless with this stupid 2010 plan. No wonder David Lee is pissed off...
