With Phil Jackson out of the New York Knicks’ picture, free agents are going to be peeking into what is going on in the basketball Mecca. The triangle is de-emphasized and now New York could really go after free agents who can fit a better system.
It is starting to happen. ESPN reported Wednesday that free-agent point guard Jeff Teague and the Knicks have “mutual interest.” General manager Steve Mills talked to the Atlanta Hawks two years ago about a Teague trade, ESPN reported.
The 29-year-old can go back to the Pacers while the team transitions. He averaged 15.3 points and 7.8 assists and played 82 games last season.
