New York Knicks Free-Agent Rumors: Rashard Lewis Interested In New York?

With Landry Fields having signed an offer sheet with the Toronto Raptors that they might not be able to match, the New York Knicks could end up looking to the free-agent market to fill yet another spot on their roster. If that is the case, then veteran small forward Rashard Lewis might be a fit.

Marc Berman of the New York Post reported today that Lewis, 32, has the Knicks on his short list of potential landing spots along with Miami, the LA Lakers, San Antonio and Atlanta. Berman reports that Lewis is looking for the $3.09-million mini mid-level exception.

Where the 6-foot-10 Lewis, a small forward with a 16.1 points per game scoring average over a 13-year NBA career, fits with the Knicks is a bit of a mystery. The Knicks, of course, have Carmelo Anthony at that spot. They also will likely have Steve Novak back as a three-point shooting specialist, and taking minutes away from Amare Stoudemire to pair Anthony and Lewis does not seem to make any sense.

This is, however, NBA silly season. So, let's just see where it goes.
