New York Knicks Free Agency Rumors 2011: Knicks Looking For Another Guard

Experiencing a number of back court injuries, the New York Knicks will look to add another free agent guard, coach Mike D'Antoni said on Monday.

Recent acquisitions Mike Bibby and Baron Davis both missed the season opener with back injuries, and Davis is expected to miss significant time. New York's back court health issues were only compounded when backup shooting guard Iman Shumpert suffered a sprained MCL during New York's 106-104 victory against Boston. Shumpert is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

The Knicks still have a $2.5 million exception to use, but it might be smart for New York to save that cap space for when the Denver Nuggets free agents who signed in China during the lockout -- Wilson Chandler, Kenyon Martin and J.R. Smith -- become available sometime around May. Carmelo Anthony is reportedly interested in adding Martin as a backup big.

Free agent guards include Michael Redd, Keith Bogans, Gilbert Arenas and former Knicks Eddie House and Nate Robinson. Robinson seems highly unlikely since he and D'Antoni did not see eye to eye while Robinson was in New York.
