Knicks Interested in Kurt Thomas

It has been reported that the Knicks are interested in Kurt Thomas

Ironically he would be our first real center since….Kurt Thomas!  I say why not?  He can still play decent defense and he can still shoot the midrange jumper..  I’d feel better about Kurt at the 5 than I would having Amar’e bang in the paint on his shaky knees all season.  He’d be a relatively cheap option as well.

Sorry Earl Barron, We don’t need any stinkin’ 7ft Centers

Center Earl Barron became a free agent when he was not re-signed by Milwaukee yesterday, but Walsh said he would pass for now despite the Knicks’ center woes. According to a source, Walsh likes Barron, but doesn’t want to sign him because D’Antoni won’t play him over Jared Jeffries or Ronny Turiaf.

Great, why would we possibly need a guy who can help clog the middle? This also sounds like the reason Walsh won’t re-up with this team, he is clearly not on the same page as D’Antoni about how to improve this roster.
