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.
