Looking for depth in the post the Knicks are looking at the recently waived Williams, according to a report.

Looking for depth in the frontcourt, the New York Knicks are apparently looking to sign forward-center Sean Williams according to a report by ESPNNewYork.com's Jared Zwerling. The big-man was recently waived by the Houston Rockets and could provide help to the Knicks in the form of backing up Amare Stoudemire.

Financially, the Knicks do not have a lot of money to spend and Williams is owed less than $1 million next season so the move would be a good fit in that sense.

In his NBA career Williams averages 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

The Rockets had acquired Williams from the Boston Celtics in July as a part of a three-team trade.

Williams, a first-round pick in the 2007 draft out of Boston College, has spent time with the Nets, Mavericks and Celtics during his four-year career. He also spent time in the NBA D-League and with various teams overseas.
